Overall it was a good experience. Nice to get out on the ocean without paying a fortune. Only knock is that it isn’t a glass bottom boat, which is what it is called and why we took it. They had a couple little desk areas you could lift and look but on a packed boat we didn’t get a chance. All things considered it was good just don’t go into it thinking it’s an actual glass bottom boat.

The tour was a decent amount of time and we picked a good time frame (10a). The weather was good for us as well. It was nice being out on the water and hearing about how certain areas were named and the tid bits of trivia were things I hadn't heard before. Wish we had seen a bit more wildlife through the bottom of the boat, but I know that's nothing they could have controlled. Getting to go over the sunken ship was really cool. I wish they would have mentioned that seating wasn't really a big deal because you could stand up and walk around once out of the harbor. Due to being about the middle of the boarding group, my friends and I ended up being on opposite ends of the boat for seats because the larger groups spread out in weird ways and some of the couples took up larger spaces that could have fit our group of 4 decently.

Amazing experience, it’s a must do if you’re visiting the island. The crew was friendly, insightful on both the island and Marine life. You’re allowed to bring your own drinks, the vibe was right, music was good, beautiful sights all around, the crew even assists you and your party with photos! My group and I were very happy we booked this tour, highly recommend!
