it’s not what you think 💭 the entire bottom of the boat isn’t visible to the ocean only for rectangular squares that you have to crowd around to see. the people were nice but it’s just a plain boating experience the skipper was very kind but kind of winged his ad libs. Overall decent experience but kind of a let down.

We had such a wonderful time on this excursion! We had a group of 15, all family and we tend to get loud, but the captain’s were fantastic and went above and beyond to show us a good time! We saw a dolphin and they steered the boat in that direction. We ended up seeing an entire pod of dolphins! The kids loved it. Our two captain’s made this experience 100x better and we can’t thank them enough. They answered all our questions and made sure we had a great time. This excursion was fantastic because of them, and I can’t recommend this tour enough. Thank you so much for the amazing experience, we will definitely return on our next visit!

Highly recommend. We expected to see fish through the glass bottom but really enjoyed how the crew enticed the fish to to the side of the boat almost to swim along with us. It was cool to see the turtles swimming too
