A note about this tour
We kindly ask that guests keep their face masks on for the duration of the cruise. Guests are still welcome to bring food and drinks on board. But we kindly ask, for the safety of our crew and other guests, that you keep your mask on unless actively eating or drinking. Mahalo!


Enjoy the beauty of Oahu’s South Shore! Depart from the Kewalo Basin Harbor and head toward Lē’ahi (Diamond Head). While aboard the Haleiwa Queen, enjoy the clear view of the Pacific Ocean floor as we cruise over live tropical reefs and one of Hawaii’s popular shipwrecks. Keep an eye out for honu (sea turtles), eels, reef sharks, dolphins, and schools of tropical fish, all visible from the deck of our vessel through our glass-bottom boat viewports. You’ve never seen the ocean like this before!

Perfect for large or small groups, book a fun-filled tour with Hawaii Glass Bottom Boats for your family or friends while visiting Hawaii. It’s a great activity for convention groups, employee appreciation days, military group outings, and local school field trips. We also offer wedding photo tours showcasing you on your wedding day against the beautiful backdrop of Oahu’s coastline.

PLEASE NOTE: We make every effort possible to view marine life, but we CANNOT guarantee any animal sightings.

An excellent trip out on the water that did not break the bank. Jim was a superb captain with many years of boating and snorkeling experience in Hawaii. We were very fortunate to see dolphins and turtles in the gorgeous blue water. Glad I did not miss the opportunity to get out on the water before leaving Honolulu.

You can't beat an early morning on the water. This is a great trip for families with young children that like to explore. Safe place for them to roam on the boat and experience the ocean. Cold water available from the crew. Dolphins and turtles to catch your eye.

We decided to take this tour at the last minute and was happy that we made it on time to board. We didn’t see much, but the weather was beautiful and the Captain gave us some great information about the hotels/resorts that we can see from the boat, suggestions on where to get some good food and some information on the other boats that were docked at the harbor.

We had a great time with Captain Jim and Captain Lorenzo. They were really friendly and knowledgeable about the local area, geography and history - all in the 1 hour time frame. Great length of time for the young kids too. Plenty to see the whole trip and we will definitely do it again.

Excellent crew, highly informative and great experience with our kiddos! We didn’t end up looking into the glass bottom parts of the boat much - we saw plenty of wildlife off the side of the boat!
