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.

Fantastic crew, fun, attentive and informative. Beautiful ride, ocean so so blue and riding the big waves. Saw many, many turtles up close. We sailed in early March and we saw the blow spout of a whale twice. Great trip

The staff was AMAZING, friendly and hilarious!! The boat was beyond clean. The staff came around and made small talk with everyone and asked where we were all from. They made sure we had all the things we needed from food, drinks, equipment and even took pictures for us. A few people got seasick and they were right there to make sure they were ok and if they needed anything. Definitely bring some medication if you’re prone to motion sickness. So glad I chose this tour vs some others I reviewed. I highly recommend them!

Absolutely loved! Staff was very covid conscious for any one wondering. They brought us right to the turtles after heading a little farther out and we were able to see dolphins that came right up to the boat. Turtles were out of this world cool, got tons of pictures - remember to bring cash for tips they absolutely deserve it

Turtles and Relaxation

We usually always try to book a catamaran cruise on any beach vacation as it is one of our favorite things to do. The staff was very kind and accommodating. We enjoyed our snorkel experience and catamaran ride. We did get to see 3 turtles. It was a relaxing day. I would recommend.
