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 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.

Taking a snorkeling trip on a catamaran is the only way to go as there are less people in my personal attention. The staff were fantastic and the trip was in the fun.

It was an amazing experience for me and my son. It was more than a guarantee. We saw four whales and we snowboard and swim along side a dozen sea turtles. The staff was outstanding. They were so kind and attentive and constantly asking us if we needed anything or if we were comfortable. We could not have asked for more. The excursion exceeded my expectations.

This was a lot of fun. The boat was clean and the crew was very friendly and helpful. Snorkeling with the sea turtles was awesome. Cocktails were fantastic. The views of Honolulu, Waikiki, and Diamond Head could not be beat. To top it off we had a whale surface pretty close to our boat. Fantastic time was had by all.

What a wonderful experience! The crew was amazing and very helpful. Captain Doug came and picked us up from a Uber experience gone bad and bought us to the boat. We saw besides sea turtles, dolphins, whales and a variety of small fish. Definitely a must excursion.
