Glass-Bottom Boat

See Maui underwater without getting wet!

Reef Dancer

Reef Dancer

The Reefdancer started operating over 20 years ago. While there have been other glass bottom boats on Maui for a long time, Olapa Ko’a Charters brought the island it’s first semi-submersible.

Semi-submersibles, are now popular around the world because they offer a much better alternative to the old style glass-bottom boats where you just look down through a window in the bottom. The cabin is comfortable and offers large viewing windows, plus the opportunity to interact with our narrator and divers.

Reefdancer has been featured on Good Morning America and has won various awards such as “Best Underwater Viewing in Maui.” Our goal is to provide a fun way to see underwater without getting wet, but we are also proud that it is an educational experience for everyone.

Board the Reefdancer semi-submarine for Maui’s “Ultimate Underwater Glass Bottom Boat Viewing Adventure and Dive Show.” Departing from Lahaina Harbor, the Reefdancer tours the only barrier reef in Maui. You’ll have the opportunity to see various kinds of coral as well as reef fish such as the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, Hawaii’s state fish.

Once we are out to the best viewing site, you can sit in front of the big windows in our underwater viewing cabin for a close up view of the reef. This is when our divers will jump in the water and search the bottom for exotic critters they can bring right to your window–a great photo opportunity! Our experienced narrator will help you learn more about the world of Maui’s reef.

This tour of the underwater world of Maui features:

  • An air-conditioned underwater cabin

  • Window seats for everyone

  • Dive show

  • Free fish chart and postcard

On the way back to the marina, guests can ride up on the top deck and get an amazing view of the beautiful West Maui mountains from the water. In fact you can ride up top anytime you like during the trip.

Don’t miss the chance to explore Maui’s underwater world the easy way!
