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.

Jason and Brandon were very friendly and took us to various location along the coast line. If you are lucky can see some whales. We saw a lot of turtles and a lot of fishes. Overall a great experience in the ocean for an hour.

The captain and first mate were fantastic. I just wish it were a longer ride. Good value, but I would happily pay a bit more for a longer ride option.

My daughter loved this. She had a hard time snorkeling so she said this was better. Plus we saw sea turtles and dolphin. It was a smooth ride and great views.
