Turtle Canyons Snorkel Excursion

Enjoy a trip along the Waikiki Coast to Turtle Canyons snorkeling site.

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 snack 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, 1045 Ala Moana Blvd, Slip A-9,  Honolulu, HI 96814
