Lanzarote – Glass Bottom Boat Trip

Travel Tales Lanzarote 2016

This is the last one from my Lanzarote 2016 series. On the Thursday we went on a glass bottom boat trip.

It was a really clear day so the sun was rather hot. We had booked on the Glass Bottom Boat trip and it wasn’t what we had expected. We had a but of a journey around the Playa Blanca bay before we moored off the coast of Playa Mujeres.

The trip offered some watersports such as kayaking and rides on the banana boat. Also you could go swimming in the sea. We watched others on the banana boat and it looked like a lot of fun! They also offered a trip over to the beach at Playa Mujeres but because of our pram we couldn’t easily do that.

Now of course since it was a glass bottom boat you could go under deck and view the fish in the beautiful blue sea. It was great but did get a bit boring after a while because there was pretty much only one type of fish out there – grey! But Miss Mostyn seemed to enjoy herself watching the fishes!

During the trip there was food and drink provided as part of the excursion cost – if I remember correctly it was chicken drumsticks, chips, salad etc and drinks.

The staff on the boat were very friendly and helped us with the pram (including carrying it to the top deck). Also, I was sporting my trusted Mark Webber Red Bull baseball cap which the captain spotted so we had a great discussion about Formula 1.

Overall thoughts – wasn’t ideal for us with a toddler and baby but would’ve been perfect for adults and older children. Still was enjoyable enough.

Have you ever been on a glass bottom boat trip?

    The glass bottom boat trip is so interesting. While I’m not keen on glass walkways, I think I would love a see-through boat.

    I’ve never been on a glass bottomed boat… I’m not sure if I’d enjoy it or not! I guess it’s something you have to do once though 🙂

    That’s quite cool, Lanzarote sticks in mind for the sea – it’s so blue there! 🙂
