Glass-Bottom Boat Cruise from Waikoloa

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your glass-bottom boat cruise departs from Waikoloa, just a short drive from Kona. Hop aboard your 26-foot (7.9-meter) boat and glide into the waters of Anaeho’omalu Bay, which hosts impressive scores of Hawaii’s diverse marine life.

    Take a seat under the shaded benches and view the bright world below, with passing tropical fish and beautiful green sea turtles. Marine naturalists join you on your cruise to provide commentary about the region’s marine life and answer any questions you may have. These experts also offer some insider tips on the best snorkel spots in the bay. Don’t forget to ask them about the humuhumunukunukuapuaa, Hawaii’s celebrated state fish, before your trip concludes.
