Fun Time. Cost us $75 US for us both. Went out 2 miles north of Lahaina.They stop the boat and 2 divers jump in and brought an octupus. an urchin; a poisionus cone and something else to the widows so we can take pictures. A staff member describes what they bring. You have an option to ride above board on the way back to the harbour. Saw several fish but nothing big. Wife envious of the scuba divers; wanted to jump in herself!
Our kids, aged 3 and 5, really enjoyed the Glass Bottom Boat and being able to see the marine life up close in this way. This is a fun excursion if you have young kids. I personally would pass on this one if you don't have kids though. The staff are friendly and knowledgable. 1 hour for this activity was plenty of time and just right.
The Glass Bottom Boat is a great way for people not able to actually get into the ocean and enjoy firsthand the beauty and treasures which lie under the sea; especially good for people with very small children who aren't old enough to snorkel. The 60-minute tour is just the right amount of time, as I think that the 90-minute tour would be too long as the cabin is very warm, with very little airflow; and a bit clausterphobic. Being up top on the deck smells very strongly of diesel fuel; making you nauseous. When heading out of Lahaina Harbor, and back in - you are able to view the gorgeous West Maui Mountains and majestic scenery from up top (if the diesel fuel smell doesn't make you too sick & nauseous); which is just an added perk to the excursion! Although there really wasn't much to see at the coral reef that we visited, this excursion has two divers bring up treasures from the bottom of the sea; and which they share with the guests through the glass windows. On our particular outing, the divers brought up 3 different creatures for the passengers viewing (an octopus, pin cushion sea urchin & sea urchin). Unfortunately this particular day very few fish were at the reef; consisting of just a few yellow tang and black trigger fish. So all in all, not a great viewing day; certainly not the crews fault! The narrator was very friendly and informative. We learned a number of facts about the creatures that we were able to view, and that we didn't know before we boarded; which is always great.
We had low visibility on our cruise day but the crew more than made up for it. They were extremely accommodating for our 2 year old too. We would recommend and go again!!
Great people fun time and a great way to learn about the reef. The staff had tons of fun facts, we saw turtles, and other amazing creatures that you won’t see unless you dive. I wish they would add lights and offer a night tour that would be awesome to see the reef at night all lit up at night.
Perfect outing for our 2 and 10 year old and fun for us parents as well! Entertaining and informed staff.
The divers brought some sea life to us. The octopus was cool. Only saw one turtle. If you have a weak stomach, take some Dramamine. The emcee sounds like he has been doing his job too long. No one was really paying attention, and he was more trying to entertain himself to pass the time. He was nice, but his jokes were really not very funny
If you've ever wanted to go diving, but are a little scared, than this is for you. It allows you to see the wonders of the ocean without even getting wet! With knowledgeable staff, this is a great place for everyone of all ages to explore the great blue!
This was an amazing experience for our family. From the moment we arrived the staff were very engaging with our daughter (age 5). We took the one hour...
First, don't come with unrealistic expectations. It's not a fully submerged submarine, it's a boat that has glass viewing below deck which is underwater....
Nice little experience. You definitely see more of you snorkel yourself, though if you do not snorkel, then you should experience this. Not too pricey and...
