You have probably heard of glass bottom boats which allow you to see what’s going on below you in the water as you float along. That’s pretty cool I guess, but not as cool as the Transparent Molokini Kayak which, rather than just having a transparent floor, actually is completely see through. This cool kayak is made completely out of the same transparent polycarbonate material used for bulletproof glass and the canopies on jet fighters. It is a two-person craft that can support up to 425 lbs while itself only weighing 40 lbs.
The kayak has a streamlined aluminum frame into which the main transparent body is set meaning you can see literally everything that’s happening beneath you. It comes with a 3 quart bailer for when the weather gets a little choppy and you need to get the water back out. This is great on calm lakes and calm ocean conditions with a suggestion that you avoid rough water. It has undergone impact resistancy tests in which it fared quite well in crashes against the shoreline, 20 foot drops, falling off a car at 70 mph and direct hammer blows. This means that the Molokini is tough even if it looks like a huge glass slipper that may shatter.
The Molokini is a very cool craft which in tests has shown that in optimum conditions can allow you to see up to 75 feet down. This is a really breathtaking way to take a cruise with someone you love and enjoy the beauties of sea life.
