Was nice being on the water and having the history and description of locations visible on the shore communicated. Was a bit disappointed in that we didn't see any marine life through the glass bottom of the boat. Snorkeling boat trip would be preferable to see more marine life.

The crew was was amazing. I did think glass bottom meant the whole boat had a glass bottom🤦🏽‍♀️it had sections on the boat that had glass..we didn't see alot only because a whale was spotted and it was no longer whale season so we raced to see that instead. That was amazing.
