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.

Great snorkeling trip to see sea turtles. It was a great experience and VERY crowded. I have some mobility issues. Bad knees and hips. They allowed me to keep my water shoes on my feet on the boat which was very helpful. There were steps down into the water which made getting in and out of the water easier than I ever thought it would be. Great crew!

Saw one turtle and the trip was shorter than advertised. We expected a short cruise afterwards but instead the boat came straight back to shore. There wasn’t even enough time to finish my beer. We were back shortly after 10am. Crew was nice and helpful.

Not up to par

I would have to rate this experience as average i saw a couple three turtles.but that was it. My mask was broken and there were too many people competing for space in the water to see anything. The water so so I actually saw more fish than anything else.
