The bottom of the boat is not glass, you sit on a seat in the bottom of the boat and look out windows! It was clear water, plenty of fish etc to see. The boat captain was informative about the coral, our actual travel guide, Carmen was great, she told us more about the area we were in and the history of each place. The shopping after the boat tour went well, the rum cake store, the chocolate factory, the cameo factory, the beach side shopping was good. Read Less

Free tour of the city before we go to the boat, but I think that was more to do with the driver stopping off at his friends businesses so we could buy souvenirs! Did get to see the worlds second largest coral reef which was cool.

Monalee headed up the tour. She was much more efficient at gathering tourists and getting to the semi sub on time. We had a marine biologist explain what we were seeing. Next was the Garafunda dancers, then the Cameo Castle, with some time to explore West Bay. We stopped in at the Chocolate Factory and had a tour and free samples. This was my favorite tour because of how well it was organized. Kudos to Monalee. Read Less

So we were originally supposed to do Snuba Diving but due to extreme waves the excursion was canceled. The cruise line let us immediately a different excursion and we chose glass bottom boat. The driver was great and gave us a small driving tour of Roatan. However the actually excursion was not clear and very rocky due to the waves. Made us kind of wonder if we would have seen more had it been a clear and nice day. Read Less

Glass bottom boat was great to see the reef. I do not recommend for people who have walking problems. Also went to a village and to a cameo store, not really interesting.

Very roomy even for a large man. Boat was air-conditioned. Large windows on both sides of the seat giving a great view. We got to see what our scuba-diving family members did without getting wet or sandy! Highly recommend this.
