Enjoy a comfortable and relaxing glassbottom cruise along Kona’s beautiful coastline! Designed to allow access to shallow waters, this vessel’s clear-paneled belly allows you to view more colors, creatures and captivating coral than in deeper water. Keep your eyes open en route, as it is common to spot a friendly pod of local Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, who delight themselves in putting on a great show. If you are not a swimmer, or just simply want to relax and stay dry, while still getting to experience all that is under the sea, then this is the tour for you!
