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 an extensive lunch buffet 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 they 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.
Lunch is also included on this Turtle Canyon snorkeling cruise. Indulge in an elaborate lunch buffet that includes a sandwich bar, delicious fruit, tasty chips, and decadent cookies. Unlimited soft drinks are included, as are two tickets for bar drinks. Beer and mixers are available for an additional fee. Don't pass up this great deal: book your tour today for a memorable time at sea.

Very good catamaran and snorkel with turtles excursion. We did see turtles. The lunch provided was very good also. Crew excellent. The pick up at various Waikiki hotels was not listed. Listed on description of tour was pick up at pier. I thought we were going to have to take a taxi. I called the conformation phone number of tour group given to me and they told me they pick up. Area for us was practically across street from hotel where we were staying. This information should have been on the tour description - even before tour was booked.

Took this excursion day before the Norwegian cruise left. (Sept.23,2016). Booked it through United cruises as I did the cruise. I would recommend it. Only thing, I contacted the excursion company directly and they told me we could be picked up near hotel we were staying at. United cruises never told me that. I thought we would have to take taxi. This was a great option.
The crew on the boat were very knowledgeable and made it all interesting and fun. Also very helpful in the water with taking photos of the turtles. The time went too quick.
