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 Crew

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.
