Kewalo Basin Harbor - Slip F28 (Honi Olani)

This activity will end right where it started.
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 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.

Trip was quite fun, was nice to go out early and have the rest of the day to do other activities. Only complaint was the large amount of people- it made the water super crowded and everyone kept bumping into us, as people are not always good at being aware of their surroundings. If you are claustrophobic especially in water, be aware of that. Otherwise very cool experience, saw fish and turtles.

Each time I come to Hawaii, I take my companions to snorkel in Turtle Canyon. This is the first time we've used Hawaii Nautical (HN)and it was by far the best experience. While it was similar to previous experiences with other companies, I felt really safe in HNs competent hands. Justin was a great captain and have clear instructions. Clay knew so much about turtles and other ocean life and shared it as we snorkeled. Julia and Andrea (?) were great, too! I'll use HN whenever I come back again.

The crew was awesome and super friendly, accommodating and made you feel comfortable. It was so much fun, so relaxing. A truly amazing experience they make sure you see the turtles. I got up close to multiple sea turtles and even saw baby turtles! Good for beginner snorkelers like myself or advanced! The sailing part was the best too!

What a great experience! Perfect for families. We had our 3 kids ages 10,9 and 3 and they all loved it. The guides were so great with the kids and we saw many many turtles. Highly recommend this tour versus others that our crowded and non-personal.
