Glass Bottom Boat Cruise in Key West

Glass Bottom Boat Cruise in Key West

On the Glass Bottom Boat Cruise in Key West, you can explore dramatic underwater vistas generally reserved for scuba divers!

See North America’s only living coral reef from the comfort of a specialized boat, with “windows to the reef” providing continuous viewing for all passengers. Expert tour guides will help you identify the wide variety of fish and other sea creatures that await you as you gaze into the underwater world of Key West.

This glass bottom catamaran offers a seated sun deck and an air-conditioned, enclosed viewing area as well as restrooms and a snack bar. The twin hull design allows for maximum stability and much less rocking motion than traditional v-hull designs.
