Great tour and guides
, Feb 2021
Absolutely loved the captain and his wife, Kiko! Very knowledgeable and fun to hang out with. We went during whale season and got to see one! Also saw a group of dolphins. Even if we wouldn't have seen these things, the experience still would have been great!

It was amazing! And the guys that run it were great! Highly recommend! We saw a sighting of a whale and they tried all they could to see as much as possible.
Wonderful experience
, Jan 2021
We had a wonderful time on this cruise. We saw lots of turtles, had a great view of diamond head and buildings along Waikiki shoreline. The cruise guide was nice and helped us take photos on the cruise. The cruise captain gave a narration during the ride which made it more interesting.
Very relaxing

Not much to see from the glass bottom at all. But other than that very enjoyable experience, amazing tour guides, very relaxing boat trip. Socially distanced
Nice Outting

Amazing Experience
, Dec 2020
Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We saw tons of fish and even saw 2 sea turtles! This trip is great and not extremely expensive, so it’s a must do if you’re visiting Oahu.
Pleasant, beautiful, informative
, Dec 2020
Saw a turtle, fish and and no other sea life but still an enjoyable tour seeing the Honolulu skyline, a beautiful rainbow and surfers riding the waves. The boat captain shared some local history and he and his first mate wife were very nice. They didn’t rush and gave us extra time after having to stop and navigate around a crazy swimmer. You might want to bring some snacks and drinks if you don’t have lunch; some free cold water was offered. Definitely Worth the money.
Glass bottom boat cruise
, Dec 2020
Watching Diamond head and the building on shore. Only saw a small school of fish and several turtles
It was great
, Nov 2020
We did the 3pm tour on a sunny day with no wind. Saw a variety of things under the glass panels including a ship, fish, and a couple even saw a sea turtle. Little did we know the weather was going to change quickly and drastically. With not so much as a visual warning, we were under pouring rain and wind coming into the boat from all sides. The staff quickly brought brown the rain window mesh, ponchos, and their incredible professionalism with guests. We slowly made our way back to the the pier. It was an exhilarating ride. I would highly recommend this company. They were incredible despite the circumstances beyond their control.
A Fun and Scenic Boat Ride!
, Feb 2020
My parents and I had a really awesome, fun time. We saw fishes, sea turtle, and whale. The captains were great, friendly, and entertaining. The boat ride is fun and scenic. It was a breathtaking ride and I will definitely recommend this to family and friends.
