Highly recommend. We expected to see fish through the glass bottom but really enjoyed how the crew enticed the fish to to the side of the boat almost to swim along with us. It was cool to see the turtles swimming too

We had a great time. We took a 1 hour trip and seen plenty of fish, a couple sea turtles and a humpback whale with her baby. Seeing the island from the sea side was also very beautiful. The captain and his mate were very knowledgeable, friendly and funny. Will definitely do again if we ever make it back to Hawaii.
