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.

Captain Flynn and his outstanding crew made the trip a lot of fun. Explained thoroughly on getting you ready and what to expect on the snorkeling adventure. The Friendly and fun Crew is in the water with you showing the areas where the turtles are and always monitoring the situation in case any assistance is needed. Very professional! On board they kept the drinks and music flowing!! Great time and highly recommend it!!!

Aloha! The most Amazing experience! The crew was so fun! We were 1st time snorkelers and they made everyone feel so comfortable and welcome like we’ve known each other forever! We saw plenty of turtles and fish and even a pod of spinner dolphins. To get a better view of them, they diverted their catamaran to follow them so we could watch them swim & jump! I would definitely book with them again! Mahalo!
