This Waikiki snorkeling tour offers a great opportunity to swim with sea turtles. Located in Honolulu right down the road from all of the main hotels in Waikiki, it takes you on a boating excursion on a fun and fast vessel to the local favorite snorkel spot called “Turtle Canyon”.
Hawaiian sea turtles sightings are guaranteed (or come again for free) and there will be a chance to spot a variety of other marine life such as tropical fish, dolphin, whale, flying fish, monk seals, and more!
The Fastest Boat in Waikiki- ‘The Nautilus’ is the main vessel. It is a 32’ custom made High Speed Inflatable Navy Seal style boat built for safety, speed, and agility. Having such a small and fast vessel offers a few BIG advantages over other similar snorkeling tours:
- It allows the boat to get up close and personal to the wildlife.
- It lets us go faster and further than the other boats around.
- Small and intimate: we only take up to 6 people per tour.
Where do we go snorkeling?
We take you snorkeling at one of the best reefs on Oahu called Turtle Canyon. Known for its vast amount of sea life and turtles that hang out above the reef, it is located off the coast of Waikiki and only accessible by boat.
An extra advantage of going to this location is the great views you get of the Waikiki coastline and the impressive Diamond Head volcano.
You are guaranteed to see turtles during the tour. The 100% Turtle Guarantee means that if you do not see turtles, you get to ride again for free.
Can I get close to the turtles?
Yes, but not so close you can touch. The NOAA rules and regulations state that people must remain at least 10 feet from them at all times. This is to respect the animal in order to not disrupt it in its natural habitat and for your own safety.
