Our entire trip was rained out, and trip was canceled 😞 and the rain won't stop until after we leave, but the company rescheduled trying to accommodate us, but the weather wasn't as agreeable.

Great for the price!

We loved it, it was educational relaxing, and we saw many wild animals like fish, turtles, and even dolphins (we got real lucky) the only reason I gave this rating a 4, was I expected a glass area that we would be closer too not standing top deck looking down through a small rectangle opening. And about half the hour was getting to and from the areas we would see the animals so it felt very fast and short. Even still It was great for a last min boat ride before we left the island and for what it cost we will bring our kids to it next time we come!

Awesome Waikiki views. Great Hawaiian history lesson from the tour guide. Being on a glass bottom boat gives you a unique view of the corral reef, fish, and turtle in their natural setting.
