Waikiki Snorkel Trip Highlights

Our snorkeling trips depart daily from Kewalo Basin Boat Harbor located conveniently adjacent to Waikiki Beach. Join us for a 2 hour snorkeling excursion to Waikiki’s Turtle Canyons. Our expert guides will be with you in the water to point out all the interesting marine life and lend a helping hand if needed. We provide all equipment including snorkeling flotation vests, masks, fins and snorkels. Prior to entering the water our crew will give a brief lesson with some tips on how to use the snorkeling equipment and describe some of the marine life that we expect to see in the water. What sets our trips apart from other snorkeling tours in Waikiki is the knowledge of our crew for our local marine life and our passion for teaching our guests how to get comfortable snorkeling while respecting our local environment. We have about a 95% success rate at finding the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles on our snorkeling trips, but you will enjoy observing and learning about many more of our local species of tropical fish, many of which are found only in Hawaiian waters.

Snorkel with Sea Turtles

At Waikiki’s Turtle Canyons it is common to see up to 10 Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles! These turtles spend time on the surface to breath which gives us an amazing opportunity to get a great view!

Responsible Eco Tourism

During your tour you will learn how to snorkel with the marine life in a responsible way. Giving the turtles room so that they feel comfortable to catch their breath on the surface as well as never touching the turtles are a few things you can do to keep Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles safe for years to come.

Tropical Reef Fish

Snorkel With all of Hawaii’s Colorful Tropical Fish! We see many species of different reef fish on our snorkeling trips, and about 30% of the reef fish in Hawaii are “endemic” meaning that you won’t find them any where else in the world!
