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.

What a great experience!! The tour guides were fantastic and were great at finding the turtles. We did the early morning tour which gave us enough time to enjoy the rest of our day. Would definitely use again when we go back to Honolulu!

I don’t know but they are so friendly, so I would recommend you called and asked about a private group tour. Which by the way sounds like a really good idea. I think we were about 25 guests and 4 crew members.

There might be a staircase into the water but unless you float very well you might have to pull yourself onto it.

Not sure if they have a specific age, there were kids on our tour though.
