Guaranteed sightings of sea turtles, plus a snorkeling tour and catamaran cruise, make this guided tour the ultimate Hawaiian experience. Choose from a morning tour or midday tour for whichever one fits your schedule best. Both options include the same stunning views and opportunities to spot wildlife such as turtles, dolphins, and whales in their natural environment.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your Waikiki hotel, or make your way to Kewalo Basin Harbor to board your 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran. Enjoy music, drinks, and views of Diamond Head as you make your way to the snorkeling spot, looking out for wildlife such as dolphins and whales as you go.

Upon arrival at Turtle Canyon, go through a safety briefing, and snap on your snorkel gear. Spend time swimming alongside green sea turtles and tropical fish. Your snorkel guide helps you find the best spots.

Back on board, rinse off in a freshwater shower and change into dry clothing. Enjoy a deli sandwich buffet in the covered cabin (midday tour only), or snap photos of the Ko’olau Mountains and Waikiki from the deck.

This tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

The entire excursion is 2 hours, with a half hour traveling out, 1 hour snorkeling, and a half hour back in. But the ride is so beautiful we barely noticed and they gave each of us two complementary drinks!

Yes, they give you life jackets that you have to wear. They aren't inflated ones so you won't float at the top, it's more so they can see you in the water. Your can still dive down into the water with them on.

When we went there were not any huge waves. you are given a blow up vest to keep you afloat. The boat did rock after we got onto the boat after snorkeling.
