      Don't waste your money if you want to see fish
      Don't waste your money if you are expecting to see fish , we only paid €15 for me and my son one way, and thought it was a bargain trip. Alas we saw nothing at all . it's really is a water taxi and not a glass bottom boat trip. As it goes too fast to see any fish . If it's a water taxi you need it's fine for that purpose. but it's cheaper to get a road taxi!

      TOTALLY UNRELIABLE- book a reputable company
      Please, please don’t get caught out by this guy. We we’re staying in Playa Blanca and booked a one hour tour with 3 kids. Travelled the €50 taxi journey to go on the boat and when I text him (Louie) he said there was some problem with a bottle but would be in touch. We went for food and hung around waiting for the call that never came. Didn’t answer my last texts so we ended up jumping off a pier in Porto calero because it was too late to book anything else. Kids were gutted. We spotted another glass bottom boat while we were there. I think it was submarine safari. Looked fab. Disgusted we didn’t know about them before we booked the other disaster.

      Not great
      Our experience was not a good one on this boat trip. Unfortunately when going down to the glass bottom, somebody knocked over the co2 extinguishers. This caused them to go off, completely filling the room with smoke. We couldn’t see anything at all and also couldn’t breathe. We were given a bottle of water to help with the choking… we were not offered any form of refund or apology. I understand it may not have been the boats fault that this occurred but some form of compensation should have been offered, there were many children on the boat. The lady who introduced herself initially, who was very lovely to begin with, began to shout to say how dangerous it was and how it couldn’t have been an accident. Yet everyone who was there tried to explain that it was an accident. We are covered head to toe in grey smoke. We had to be hosed down on the boat, which still didn’t get rid of the powder that was stuck to us! (When we got back to the hotel we were still covered in powder) The only reason we had to get on this boat to begin with was because the taxis in Puerto calero are very hard to come by!

      Fish feeding
      The glass bottom ferry to puerto calero stops on the way to feed the fish, and the views of the coastal landscape are super.

      Great for kids
      Great little trip only 8 euros Amazing staff that tell you all about the Island Five minutes into the trip the captain stops the engine and passengers can go down the stairs to watch the fish etc through the glass ,the staff make it exciting for the children asking them to find mermaids etc The port of puerto Calero is a lovely with shops and restaurants A must is the upper deck pub where you’ll find task ales and the best food served

      Short hop along the Lanzarote coast
      Just for a change of scenery we took the glass bottomed water taxi from Puerto del Carmen just along the coast. The trip takes about 30 minutes including a brief stop to view the sea life through the glass panel in the bottom of the boat. Nice little harbour resort at the other end to explore give it a bash if only to break up your day.

      Enjoyable Trip
      Fun trip on this river taxi. Only a short journey, but a stop on the way to go down to the bottom of the boat to look at the fish through the glass bottom. We used the trip just to break up the holiday and get away from the swimming pool for a few hours and it did the job perfectly.

      Went over to the next litte marina - the trip was most enjoyable with a very friendly crew who pointed out places of interest.

      Excellen Short Trip
      We have travelled twice on the Water Taxi (glass bottom boat) between Puerto Calero and Puerto del Carmen. Well worth it. Good fun and great scenery from the boat.

    Great way to move from A-B whilst having some sights. Don’t expect too much from the glass bottom, but it’s fun for the little ones + perhaps you need some luck as well with the fishes.
