Beautiful we saw lots of fish and turtles and the staff were wonderful. Would be nice if the tour were longer so you could watch them on the reef more or if a longer one was offered.

Aloha, Thanks for re viewing your Glass Bottom Boat Cruise! We're happy to read that you enjoyed the trip and your interactions with our crew so much that you wish you could have stayed out longer. Actually,guests reserving our Aloha Day Beach Package can choose to take as many Glass Bottom Boat Cruises as they'd like during the 4 hours the package covers (go to https://hawaiioceansports.com/beach-activities/aloha-days-at-the-beach/ for more information about this activity)...so that may be an option for you to consider. We look forward to sharing more adventures with you! A Hui Hou Kakou

The tour was short--about 1/2 hour in length, but enjoyable. Not only did we see a lot of reef fish, but also several Honu. Our grandson loves Honu, and was thrilled to see them. The trip also affords a nice view of the Big Island coast. I would recommend it, especially if you don't snorkel.
