"Wonderful sunset cruise"

We spent a wonderful evening out cruising the coastline on the Glass Bottom Boat. They are a very friendly outfit and really paid attention to the guests. Sunset was amazing and the view of Diamond Head with a rainbow in the background made for many special photos for our trip. I definitely recommend this one!

Saturday late afternoon. About 10 people on the boat. Plenty of room to move and take pictures. The views of Diamond Head and Waikiki with backdrop mountains was spectacular. The captain and first mate were so attentive and engaged. The mate even sang and played ukulele-very well. Good value, too, and that seems a bit rare in Honolulu.

"Not your normal glass bottom boat tour"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed October 13, 2018 NEW
This your was not like most glass bottom boats. You have to look over the railing or from above 6 feet down. It would have been better if they would have let us climb down for a better look. They do not feed the fish or scuba to bring the fish to the window like most others. We did see some turtles and a few fish, but nothing special. The co pilot did sing and play the ukelele and do a hula dance at the end
