The glass bottom boat tour was fantastic! The fact I couldnt get ahold of anybody at Viator to add a guest was a disappointment. I had to get a hold of Clayton tours directly.

The boat ride was great. Very knowledgeable and friendly crew. All the staff at the light house were also friendly and took their time explaining everything about the lighthouse and it’s history. Would recommend this boat tour to anyone. The boat was wheelchair accessible.

Tour guide was terrible and did not...
Richard T
, Sep 2017
Tour guide was terrible and did not know much other than a few corny jokes! The sunken boat crossings showed a few pieces of scattered rubble which offered little to the trip. Also the glass bottom let us see some types of seaweed and a kind of barnacle which the guide said was an invasive type. Best part of the trip was the Rock Island Light House and that too added little pleasure to a very boring trip! I recommend going up the coast a short distance to Uncle Sam's boat cruise where information abounds!
