Oahu is home to some of the most impressive marine life in Hawaii. This exciting Oahu snorkeling tour will give you a chance to dive into the crisp blue water for a glimpse at Hawaii's turtles, fish, and other aquatic critters. You'll also enjoy snacks, beverages, and unbelievable views of the island. Climb aboard to start your nautical adventure in paradise.
Your Oahu tour cruises along the Waikiki coast. Located on Oahu's south shore, the beachfront neighborhood of Waikiki is home to the famous beach of the same name; the white sandy shoreline is one of the island's biggest draws, and you'll see surfers and paddle boarders make the most of its awesome waves. If you take this Oahu snorkeling cruise between December and April, you might even see a few whales as the rise to the surface to breathe. After cruising for a bit and taking in the island views, you will eventually reach Turtle Canyon.
Turtle Canyon is the ultimate dive spot for getting up close to these cute creatures. Everywhere you look, you'll find turtles resting and swimming about; they tend to congregate on lava ledges and around pukas (holes). Don't worry about getting too close; the turtles are used to the attention and won't mind if you take a photo with your underwater camera. Before diving, you will be provided with top-of-the-line snorkel gear, including safety vests and masks.
I had different expectations from this trip. We did see turtles, but I was thinking that there would be a lot of them. I think I saw 6 all together. It was very cool and the guides were great. They even took our cameras all the way under the water to take photos for us.
