What You Can Expect

Turtle Canyon Snorkel Cruise by Catamaran

Luxury catamaran out on the open water

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.

Tour was great! It was really clear the day we went and we saw several turtles! Staff were great and the guide that came in the water with us was even nice enough to dive down and get some closer video of the turtles on my GoPro!
