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.

The crew was excellent. They did a great job instructing us and guiding us in the water to see the sea turtles. We saw a total of 6, which was awesome. On the boat they kept everything organized and provided great customer service with drinks and snacks. Would highly recommend this company for a turtle canyon tour

Great staff and friendly atmosphere. Only complaint was having to purchase our own mask/snorkel, but it’s because of covid, not their fault.

I loved every minute!!! Not a lot of people can handle being in the boat and some don't know if they can, I recommend everyone to have motion sickness pills so you can fully enjoy the trip!! Mahalo 💛 -Mari

Do the midday one!
SYC

Pay the extra $$ and do the midday experience! We did the AM and it definitely was not worth it. It was more of a boat ride vs turtle snorkeling experience. Boat & crew: absolutely amazing! Unfortunately, only saw 1 turtle. Spent probably like 15 min in the water.
