Fabulous turtle experience
Jen_h, Mar 2023
We had a fabulous trip. The staff were awesome, super friendly and good at pointing out turtles. We were able to hang out with turtles, saw 8-10 some so up close we had to be careful not to swim into them. Boat wa comfortable, definitely preferable to larger excursions. The snorkeling spot was crowded with other boats though

Trip was canceled due to weather but was charged for a trip that we never got to go on. Poor customer service
Kara_F, Mar 2023
The crew was very informed, interested in giving us the best experience and super friendly. This is a more intimate tour as the others are 20 or more people.

We saw turtles,whales,and dolphins and great crew! Britt taught us to dive deeper and was so cautious for our safety and Jason! The best!
Esau_C, Jan 2023
Beautiful day! Great guides who were very friendly, saw plenty of sea turtles and fish and enjoyed our time out on the water. We were able to ride those biki rental bikes you see all over in Honolulu/Waikiki over to the harbor.
Rescheduled and cancelled, disappointed
Zelin_Z, Dec 2022
I’m lucky enough to book another tour after the schedule was rescheduled and cancelled by the owner. Hope this won’t happen again, and I haven’t see my refund yet. Where is it?

Jean_H, Dec 2022
The ride out was a bit choppy and getting the boat in position induced motion sickness. We did see a couple turtles and some fish. The guides were pleasant but spoke too softly and too fast to understand/hear over the boat engine.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
We are sorry about the bumpy ride! Mother Nature is unpredictable and we hope to have you again on a less windy day.

We had an amazing experience, our tour people were very knowledgeable. Very experienced, made our trip safe and learned a lot
Private snorkel experience
ALISON_E, Dec 2022
Our group wanted a more personal experience instead of the 30-40 person group experience. We found exactly what we were looking for with Brittany and Mark! They were amazing. We were in a private group of 5 people which was perfect to be able to really take in the experience on a whole other level. Britney was our personal guide while in the water, she was knowledgeable and so kind. Both of the crew members had great personalities and took great care of us. Would definitely recommend for a personal small group experience. Thank you Britney and Mark!
AMAZING EXPERIENCE WITH SO MANY SEA TURTLES
Marlene_B, Nov 2022
Brittney and Jason were our guides and they were absolutely wonderful! Jason was our captain and he had us at a great location for snorkeling! Brittany was awesome in the water with us and was super informative and was absolutely amazing when telling us about the wildlife. We only had six guests on the boat and 4 of that was our group and it was def a very private tour feel and ABSOLUTELY. WORTH. IT. Book this tour with this crew as the value and experience was worlds apart from the 20+ groups of boats we saw nearby.

Brittnie_T, Nov 2022
The crew was amazing and we saw so many turtles!! They were very helpful with my little kids and very knowledgeable of everything
Our favorite part of the trip!
Taylor_M, Nov 2022
We had an amazing time! It was just my partner and I so it was like we had our own private tour. We saw so many turtles and on our way back we saw dolphins! Brittany even went down and got a shell for me to take home. We'll always cherish this adventure and definitely recommend it to everyone!
John_M, Nov 2022
Skipper Mark and Brittany were amazing!!! Britt was spotting the turtles and she taught us about the fish we could see. It was a blast. Thanks Brittany and Mark. Shout out to Mark for visiting with “grandma” who stayed on the boat.
The snorkeling trip was great!!
Larry_M, Nov 2022
The snorkeling trip was great!! We saw lots of fish and about 8 sea turtles total. Crew was terrific; would definitely recommend booking this trip.
An easy way to snorkel
Ann_W, Oct 2022
We enjoyed a brief scenic boat ride with only 6 guests to Turtle Canyon. In the morning, the water was quite clear and we swam with tons of fish and sea turtles. The guide Tyler was very knowledgeable and friendly.

Jill_J, Oct 2022
This was a great snorkel tour! The fact that it was a small group on the boat was perfect. The team was so friendly and accommodating. We had a great time and saw lots of turtles. I highly recommend this snorkel experience.

Brandy and Mark were great. The Ofer people on our trip canceled so we had the boat to ourselves. They kept us away from the crowd.
We saw turtles
Candea_M, Oct 2022
My honest review, we looked at lots of tours and chose this one for a more intimate experience. We have been on lots of boat tours this was a good experience because of the guide and we got to see a sea turtle. It would have been great if it was an actual 2 hour tour though. It's was only an 1.5. The guide who swam with us was grest. The vibe felt off though overall. It should be marketed as a 1.5 hour tour. We arrived exactly at 1:30 and was off the boat by 3:30. So if you want intimate but quick this is your tour. We paid for 2 hours though and we could have booked something less expensive and enjoyed either a tour around the bay which for some reason was no time for. Overall a good but not a an amazing experience.
Good trip but not really “food and bev included” as stated on advertisement/order page
Gloria_M, Oct 2022
Ty was a great guide. Mike the captain very nice too. Small group was a big plus for us as captain Mike got us out and in the water before all the other many boats. Saw several turtles. Once all the other boats unload it’s harder to see them. Would of given 5 stars but trip lost one because order stated food and drinks and there were no drinks offered. Food was limited to pineapple.

Great Day on the Water!
Richard_S, Oct 2022
This was a fantastic trip that I would recommend to everyone looking for a great day on the water. It was a quick and easy ride out and we saw everything we expected and more. Dolphins that swam right up alongside the boat... Sea Turtles... and all kinds of fearless fish.
As for the boat, the crew (Ty) and the captain, everything was top notch. They were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and flexible with the agenda which made it feel like our own private tour. All in all, absolutely outstanding!
What was best was that we saw a lot of other boats crammed with 20, 30, or more people clamoring over each other trying to swim around. Our operator, Diamond Head Cruises, kept it small and personal, which made all the difference. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic day in Oahu.
