HAWAII GLASS BOTTOM BOAT
Learn About Our Crew and Boat
It’s our aim to share Hawaii’s beauty and educate all who come aboard the Haleiwa Queen, visitors and island residents alike, on how insanely unique our Pacific Ocean is. We look forward to sharing the Hawaii Glass Bottom Boats experience with you!
The Haleiwa Queen is captained by Leif Robinson and Cliff Botelho. Hawaii Glass Bottom Boats was founded on the desire provide for their families through their passion for being in the ocean. Leif began fishing off of Oahu’s North Shore, where he grew up.
Fresh out of high school, he got into commercial fishing and eventually purchased his first boat. He escorted canoe races through our Hawaiian island chain and enjoyed educating Hawaii’s youth on keeping our ocean and its inhabitants protected.
Leif has been a captain since 1999.
The Haleiwa Queen
Welcome aboard the Haleiwa Queen, a 50-foot power catamaran. Through the on-deck ports of our glass-bottom boat, we explore the vibrant, lively ocean floor below. Keep an eye out for sea turtles, dolphins, tropical fish, shipwrecks, and living coral reefs as we tour along Oahu’s South Shore. Hop on one of our daytime or sunset tours, or inquire about booking your private event with us. Our tours are friendly for guests of all ages and can accommodate up to 49 people at once. We look forward to sharing the Hawaii Glass Bottom Boats experience with you through our unique perspective.
Hands down best tour I have EVER been on!!! Mike and Tony were phenomenal. Okay I get afternoon booking with whole boat to ourselves was an accident however; their demeanor, service willingness to make it a great experience for the few instead of the many was next level. I have travelled the world it doesn't get better than this. #happy
Beautiful, relaxing, informative sunset boat ride We had a wonderful time on the sunset cruise for our 20th wedding anniversary. The crew was very nice and helpful and shared a bit of history of the island while we waited for the sun to set. The view of the sunset from the water was breathtaking. The price was very reasonable compared to other sunset boat.rides as well. We'll definitely do it again next time we visit...
OMG!! Such fun. Our family did the glass bottom boat tour and we all loved it. Our tour guide was amazing and so knowledgeable. His wife took amazing pictures for us so that we would have awesome memories!! Would definitely do it again!!
Our family loved the boat! Review of: Waikiki Beach Glass Bottom Boat Cruise We saw rays, turtles, tons of fish and a very cool sunken barge. It was very kid friendly. I would definitely recommend!
Wonderful views, wonderful captains, ten out of ten!! We saw a sea turtle, we saw a school of dolphins. Our guide explained and pointed out so many views. Those guys were amazing
