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.

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.

Traveler Tips

Next time, take medication along just in case, otherwise, beautiful skorkeling, great crew, and deli meal and drinks if you get to enjoy it!
If your an avid snorkeler, probably best to select a smaller venue.
I highly recommend taking time to fit this into your vacation.

Everything was wonderful. The crew was awesome, the boat ride, swimming with turtles. The only thing that would have made it better is if the dolphins came to see us. 10/10 would recommend.

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.
Cruising to see the turtles
Cheryl_J, Aug 2022
We enjoyed seeing some tropical fish and 3 sea turtles. The ride out and back was beautiful as well as the boat.
Don't bring your own snorkel gear it's included in the price. They will give you vest and snorkel on board
Grace_P, Aug 2022
We saw on your ad that snorkeling gear is included in the price but when we get notice before the date of our activity it says bring your own snorkeling gear or bought it on board. We ended bringing in our own which we rented in our hotel but when we are returning the gear reception said they should not asked you to bring any gear cause they have it on the boar and it is included in the price. Good thing they let us refunded the $32 bucks (4 snorkel gear). There was a family that complain about it.

Alma_P, Aug 2022
Amazing experience! This was our first time snorkeling and they made me and my family feel safe during the entire experience . Totally recommended.
Renee_D, Aug 2022
Overall great. I thought the staff was great super friendly and nice. Drinks were great. The boat ride was nice, only thing that was frustrating was how many people were at the spot when we arrived to snorkel. People were very inconsiderate and sloppy but that’s just what comes with going on a trip out of Waikiki. In the future I would look for a trip not out of Waikiki but if thats what you want it was great!

Amber_W, Aug 2022

Being up close to the turtles and the turtletinis. The only thing I did not like about the trip is trying to give them a great review and being forced to have to write 100 characters here to do it.
Great memories

Crew was great! Very helpful. Even though not all of our party members were able to be in the water due to their swimming abilities, they still had a great time on the boat. The turtles are amazing!
