Glass bottom boat v semi-submersible boat

Has anyone been on both types of boat on a reef tour? If so, is there much difference in what you can see in the semi-submersible compared to the glass bottom boat?

Yep, loads of difference in my opinion. I'd go with the semi-sub every time. It's just so much better sitting below the water and looking eye-to-eye with the coral and marine life.
