What To Expect

Either enjoy pickup at your Waikiki hotel or make your way to Kewalo Basin Harbor to board your 53-foot (16-meter) power catamaran.
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.
Return to the harbor and transfer to ground transportation for drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.

The crew made us feel very comfortable. They were very funny and down to earth. Good lunch. Nice trip even though it was a little choppy.

The water was warm even though the air was chilly. There were a lot of turtles to see, not many fish. It was a fun excursion and it was what I expected.

The crew was very helpful and pleasant! We did see some turtles and fish! The blue waters were beautiful! We had a great time!

This is a very well organized excursion showing you the near off shore of Waikiki. Snorkelling showed us the marine life including turtles. Lunch is well appreciated after such exercise ! Staff is well trained and take care of us.

Never a dull moment! Pick up and drop off seamless. I had a great time with my daughter watching the sea turtles. What I did not expect was that people would sign up for this and not have the first clue how to swim. I was shocked!! However the guys on the boat did an excellent job, teaching people who had no clue how to swim as well as bartender, and cleaned up after spilled drinks, and show us where the turtles were. They even made an awesome for photographer for us. Thanks So MUCH!!!

I have never snorkeled before, nor do I go into very deep water when I go swimming. I love turtles and this was a very awesome experience! I saw about a dozen turtles! It was so cool to watch them at the bottom of the water (20 feet deep! But I felt safe with my life jacket and with the very friendly crewmen keeping an eye on us!), and watch them swim to the surface! I got to follow one as it came to the surface and he stayed on the surface for a long time. We looked at each other--I loved his BIG eyes! He was a foot or two away from me. It was so neat!The catamaran ride was nice, too. Very pretty view! I would recommend this to anyone wanting a great boat ride and fun time in the ocean to watch the turtles and different fish!

This was an amazing experience and the staff were amazing. We saw so many turtles and were up close and personal with these beautiful creatures. Good food if you get the lunch and friendly staff.

Well organised, staffed and run. Did the 8am tour, picked up in time and whisked to the catamaran. Safety briefing on route to maximise time in water. Saw plenty of turtles and fish.Thanks for a great trip!

Lots of Sea turtles. Fun tour and Akoni and the girls were great. The only thing I would change is that they require you to wear flippers. The flippers were not needed and just kind of got in the way. It took some of the fun out of it. We also had some issues with our mask leaking. We could never get a good seal.

This was the top of our list when it came to things to do on Oahu. Our tour guides Doug, Lisa, Kristen and Kia were all very accommodating, funny and knowledgeable. After the snorkeling they took us on a long boat ride out on the ocean in front of Waikiki. I would recommend this tour to everyone! We got to see plenty of fish on the coral and there were 2 turtles one surfaced a few times and the other was snoozing on the coral. Definitely worth the time and the money for this one!
