Great Deal. Great Experience!
, Aug 2021
Crew was friendly and worked hard. If you dont mind supplying your own water/snacks this was a WAY better deal than the other tours. Good equipment (no fins though). Saw lots of turtles and a group of dolphins escorted us back on our return trip. The whole thing was great. Great job Manakai crew!
Must do

We saw turtles and dolphins!! It was a great experience and enjoyed the ride out to snorkeling. Captain and his team were helpful in pointing out points of interest.
Fun Snorkeling Trip

This was a great excursion while we were in Waikiki. Our kids loved it! We were lucky to see a couple of turtles in the water. The boat crew was great. They helped to make it a fun trip. The snorkeling equipment and fins were in new condition. I would definitely recommend this trip!

Totally Awesome
, Jul 2021
So far the Waikiki Turtle snorkeling tour on the Manakai catamaran has been the highlight of our trip. Talk about an amazing experience. Our guides were incredible, they made things fun didn't over explain things. I would absolutely recommend this adventure to anyone considering options. The size of our group was perfect. Thank you for the memorable experience. Mahalo!

On the way there one of the our guides was pretty great! Sean, I think his name was. He did some pretty cool flips for us and helped a lot of us swim back to the boat at the end. I will say I was a little sad that we snorkeled with a bunch of groups out there. A lot of snorkelers kept swimming into me without saying excuse me or sorry. I got to see some pretty awesome fish but most of the turtles were only where there were no people. They were hard to see with three snorkeling groups out there. Nevertheless the fish were great! None of us really used the whole time alotted to us the time to explore was sufficient. My friend that went with me cut up his leg on the ladder going down so he didn't get to snorkel and had to go to the hospital when we got back to shore. I don't know if he tried to but we didn't get his money back from it.
Amazing a guides had great energy

We had a great time! Lots of fish and turtles all around you and you will definitely have a great time out there with your family!
Great experience! Lots of fun!

We had a great time on the catamaran and our guides were knowledgeable and fun! Before we got in the water we saw a few turtles. Once in the water most of the turtles had dispersed, which was a little disappointing, but they are wild animals so no fault of the crew. We still saw an eel, tons of fish, a pufferfish, and a shark! Absolutely a great experience that I would do again!

Shoutout to lifeguard Jena
, Jul 2021
Pleasantly surprised, I am not a strong swimmer and the lifeguard Jena was super helpful. I got to see plenty of turtles and some fish.
Worth it!

It was a lot of fun! The boat crew were great! We saw four turtles during our trip. It was worth it!
