We had a great time with clear kayaks a few days back. Bottoms were very clear and we could see down 30 feet or so. Location was awesome, we could see turtles, fish and lots of different rock/reef structures. Instructor was nice and knowledgeable. Kayaks handled well, equipment was good quality. Some people were snorkeling close by. Bring a snorkel... More

A clear bottom boat is a great way to see the marine life with kids who maybe are too young to feel comfortable with snorkeling. It's also a great way to cover a large area when hoping to see sea turtles. Best on a bright sunny day.

We had a great day on the water. Lots of turtles. Excellent service and pricing. Dereck was excellent to work with. If you have a fear of snorkeling or have difficulty swimming, this is a great alternative. I highly recommend an under water camera on a stick. You can get some really good photos if you're patient.

As a repeat customer, I can tell you it is a must do...tropical fish, sea turtles and whale sightings... close up. Easy booking, and the owner, Derek, will work to assure the conditions are good before you hit the water, and you will have the information you need to enjoy your adventure. Easy to find and parking is good.

My daughter and I rented a clear bottomed kayak and had a great time! On the first day we booked we got a call letting us know that the water was too rough that day and we were able to reschedule right away over the phone. I liked that our safety was obviously a priority and that they would rather... More

we were greeted by the owner who was upbeat and sincere. The kayaks were amazing and we were lucky enough to see tons of turtles and a few fish.

Clear Kayak is the way to go. Easy, professional set up and instruction. You are on your own with a great view of the ocean floor, reefs, fish and turtles. If you are not into snorkeling with large groups or for personal preference, this is the way to go. Staff is knowledgeable of the areas to kayak into for viewing... More

Although we seem to have done this on a morning when there weren't many turtles around, I'm assuming that was the exception and others will generally have better luck than we did (we just saw one beautiful big turtle coming up for air). Derek did a good job of staying in touch before our kayaking day, getting us ready that... More

These kayaks were excellent! Looking through the clear bottom was extremely beautiful! The instructor gave us clear instructions and suggestions. A sea turtle swam under my kayak! Would so totally do it again!

My wife and I are here on our honeymoon. We aren't the super athletic or adventurous types. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the clear bottom kayaks. Easy to paddle and navigate. Was easy to get close to the rocks without losing control. You can get a regular kayak experience anywhere, but the clear bottom kayak was perfect for seeing fish,... More
