If you are expecting the bottom of the boat to be glass then don’t go on this tour they book the boat up to about 50 people and it has 4 portholes that only 6 people each can stand around to look through to see fish they expect people to take turns but that does not happen. I really want to ask for a refund for that was the worst ever it was just a boat ride for me

The captain was friendly and made us feel welcomed.. He surprised me by giving me recognition for my birthday. He let me steer the boat for a minute which was amazing. There were huge turtles and plenty of fish in the ocean.
