Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Once aboard the 'Honi Olani', find a spot on the deck and make yourself comfortable for the 15-minute ride to Turtle Canyon. Listen to music on the surround-sound speaker system and enjoy the scenery as Diamond Head comes in to view. Cash in your two included drink tickets for a selection of cocktails, white wine, sparkling wine or beer. Unlimited non-alcoholic drinks are also available. 

Enjoy the sun and the island breeze while you scan the horizon for marine life like spinner dolphins and migrating whales, which pass through the area between December and April. 

The captain will moor the boat at Turtle Canyon, where you will suit up in your snorkel gear (provided) and get a safety briefing. Slip in to the water by climbing down a safe stairway off the boat and spend about an hour to 90 minutes among the turtles with your snorkel guide. 

Back on board after your snorkeling adventure, feel free to take a freshwater shower or change in to dry clothing. Enter the the covered cabin for a deli sandwich buffet (midday tour only), or hang out on the deck to relax and snap photos of Waikiki and the Ko'olau Mountains as you sail back to shore.

Amazing!

This was a treat! Being on the beautiful water and seeing the island from that vantage point was amazing. Driving into the water and experiencing the sea life up close and personal will always be a great memory. Lastly, the entire crew were pleasant and personable. 10 out of 10 and highly recommend.

Best experience of my life.

The goal was to see turtles and that goal was accomplished. What we didn’t count on, and what is hands down one of the best things I’ve ever experienced is the pod of dolphins we stumbled upon. The tour directors let us enjoy the experience instead of keeping to a specific schedule and heading back in. That was beyond appreciated. Thank you for letting us relax and enjoy this. In a world that has gone mad I really needed this escape.

100% perfect form start to finish. Lisa, our captain, was engaged without being overbearing. Kia and Amos, our crew, were awesome. Easy to talk to, funny, brought drinks without us asking, and helped us find the best spots on the reef for turtles and other creatures. Food was yummy, boat was clean, covid precautions taken seriously. We signed up for the sunset tour the next night because of how wonderful the crew was. Highly recommend.

We got a snorkeling tour with Lisa, Kia, and Amis. All 3 captains were amazing and super funny. Kia (assuming how the name's spelled) was absolutely went above and beyond with her job. My wife can't swim very well so she planned to chill in the water closed by the boat. But Kia helped guide my wife individually out to the open water with the big group and got her used to snorkeling and blended in with all group activities. We could never thank her enough. Appreciate the crew's attention to details and always on the look out for all tour members. Highly recommended!

What a great excursion. The staff on the boat was amazing and very friendly. They explained the COVID safety requirements, the agenda for the trip. Once we got to the snorkel spot, Nick helped us find the turtles and make sure everyone saw them. Lunch was good and the staff was always walking around to see if we needed anything. I would recommend this excursion to anyone.
