Rentalboat - Glassbottomboat

A glassbottomboat is a watercraft with sections of glass (or other suitable transparent material) below the waterline allowing passengers to observe the underwater environment from within the boat. The view through the glass bottom is much better than simply looking into the water from above, because one does not have to look through optically erratic surface disturbances. The effect is similar to that achieved by a diving mask, while the passengers are able to stay dry, out of the water. Glassbottomboats are used almost exclusively for giving tours, as they are usually designed to allow the maximum number of tourists to view out the glass bottom and are not really suitable for other uses.

Glassbottomboats are in use in nearly every seaside tourist destination. However many of them are gradually being replaced by semi-submarines. These type of vessels offer a better view of the marine life. This small glass-bottom-boat gives you the opportunity to show your guest the amazing underwater world of your destination. It is small and easy to handle. So the invest is very easy to return back into a big win.
