Oahu Turtle Canyons Snorkeling Excursion

Enjoy a trip along the Waikiki coast to the Turtle Canyons snorkeling site! This spot is known for the large numbers of sea turtles that float above the reef while the reef fish swim around them and clean their shells. When the turtles come up to breath they can even be seen by spectators relaxing on the boat!

After you have gotten your fill of snorkeling, climb back onboard and relax in the sun with complimentary snacks and beverages. Kick back and watch out for spinner dolphins and humpback whales (whales sighted in winter months December to April) while you cruise back to the harbor.

Driving directions will be included in your confirmation email to the boat at Kewalo Basin, 1125 Ala Moana Blvd, Slip B1, Honolulu, HI 96814.
