Some people might be familiar with the name Molokini since it refers to a famous crescent-shaped, partially submerged volcanic crater in Hawaii; others will recognize it as the name of a transparent kayak. Made out of military-grade bulletproof glass originally intended for fighter jet cockpits, this transparent kayak is the only way to enjoy the clear blue waters of tropical destinations short of snorkeling and scuba-diving.

Designed by Clear Blue Hawaii, a studio based in Seattle, Washington, the transparent kayak boasts a carbon Kevlar frame, which gives it its minimal weight. Available in single seater or double seater configurations, the transparent kayak can be folded for easy transportation to and from specific sight-seeing spots. Full of unexpected details, the transparent kayak is a great design that makes the most out of one of Hawaii's gems.
