Glass Bottom Boat Ride
High and Dry
Bring a camera but forget the towel–you won't need it on these half-hour glass-bottom boat adventures. Above deck, you'll soak in the sights of palm-lined, turquoise Anaeho’omalu Bay before heading below to peek into a magical underwater paradise . Here, six full-sized viewing windows let you spy on green sea turtles and thousands of exotic fish as they mingle amongst tropical coral reefs. Onboard marine naturalists serve to enrich the educational value of this family-friendly excursion but the best teachers are those on the other side of the glass.
Captain Will had a sixth sense about where the whales would surface and would wait patiently for them to appear. The marine biologist, Dr. Jonathan, shared lots of information and really engaged the children on board which made it fun for all of us. The crew were friendly and helpful, but assertive about keeping us all safe. I don't suppose every whale watching trip turns our as perfect as ours, but this adventure was the highlight of our vacation.
