Peak into Kona’s underwater paradise without getting wet. Cruise along on Marian, a 36-foot glass bottom boat specially designed to cruise within inches of the reef. Have your cameras ready for some close and personal visits with colorful fish, corals, and other sea creatures. Marian is designed for uncrowded, shaded comfort and clear viewing. As you cruise along, you’ll enjoy breathtaking vistas of the island’s rugged shoreline. Step forward to the bow and you might see frolicking dolphins or whales. Throughout your adventure, the onboard naturalist will share tales and legends that evoke the magic

We had such an awesome time on the glass bottom boat! We saw all kinds of tropical fish through the glass. My daughter loved it! It was also awesome to see the dolphins that they pointed out to us! The staff were great!!
