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.

A must do when visiting Waikiki

We booked the lunch time cruise which was amazing. The staff were extremely friendly, knowledgeable and really cared about everyone’s experience. The array of sea life during the snorkel was incredible from fish, turtles and even dolphins. The lunch, nibbles and drinks were also great.

Had a great time, crew was excellent and made the trip and snorkeling easy for us newbies. Absolutely awesome to see the sea turtles suspended in the water , letting the fish eat the pests off of their shell and skin.
