Glass Bottom?

The experience of going out on the water, throwing the food to feed the fish, watching them eat and seeing the dolphins was awesome. The only disappointment was that there really isn't a glass bottom to the boat.

My wife and I had a great time! After running all over the island it was nice to slow down, take a boat ride and relax. It was a really good experience. Everyone was great. We got to feed the fish, see some turtles, and watch a pod of spinner dolphins.
