Seeing turtles was great. Water not the clearest I’ve been in but not the fault of tour operators. Crew was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Honestly we didn’t know what we were Signing up for other than swimming with turtles. I’m glad we didn’t because we may have let fear keep us from one of the most amazing experiences we’ve ever had. Snorkeling is hard at first, snorkeling in an open ocean for your first snorkeling experience ever is even harder 😅 But!! The crew quickly put us at ease, encouraged us, gave us heaps of input and tips, and gave us lots of time to get adjusted. The whole trip was just amazing!! Highly highly recommend!!

This is a great snorkeling tour. The lifeguards were wonderful and helpful. I give it a 4 only because we waited for a group that was late. However, the captain still gave us the full allotted time of snorkeling. We would definitely do this tour again.

Took the afternoon boat. Great crew and good vibe onboard. Seas were very rough and with the high winds, current was no joke. Only recommended for advance swimmers. This is deep water swimming for turtles in rough seas, not for kids. Half the people on our boat had to be rescued or pulled from the water. Positive side, I swam next to a beautiful turtle!

My son and his daughter came back the most excited after this excursion of all the excursions that they completed on Hawaii and in Honolulu. They loved seeing the turtles, coral and fish. My son said that a turtle nearly bumped into him when it decided to surface and he had to back off in a hurry.

Very nice and helpful staff! We’ll explained . Drinks and snacks provided was excellent. One thing that I found it challenging was the swimming . If your not an active swimmer is tough. I only got to see 3 sea turtles. Another thing was all the other sea turtles snorkeling boats . Go to the same place. It can get a bit intense. Otherwise, my experiences was good.

It was very nice to see the turtles, but for the amount of money we spent was too much for this experience. We didn’t go but a couple of miles out from our hotel, we spent an hour looking at the same turtles and staying a close to the guide in the water was not easy.

Aloha! Yes Turtle Canyons is located right in front of Waikiki Beach. We take our tours to this spot because of the abundance of sea turtles. It is about a 15 minutes boat ride from the harbor and the we snorkel for about one hour. Our guests can explore around the reef but we do ask that you stay near the guides and lifeguards so that we can keep everyone safe and supervised. We're one of the more affordable snorkeling tours available and still pride ourselves on giving the best snorkeling tour in Waikiki despite the below average cost! I'm sorry that you didn't feel like the experience was worth it but glad to hear you did enjoy snorkeling with the turtles!

The crew was so kind and caring and efficient! Talia our guide was so knowledgeable and I felt very safe with her leadership. We saw turtles below the surface and watched as they came to the surface. We were so close to them and could see every detail! It was amazing! Highly recommend

Rare to see sea turtles in their natural environment. We were able to see dozens, and a handful of them came to the surface just a few feet from us and gave a great show. It wasn’t only about the turtles though, there many fish swimming all around us as well. Especially fascinating for the younger kids in the group, but many of the adults were just as excited!

Captain Nate was the absolute best…my kids enjoyed themselves although I was afraid to get in the entire crew still made me comfortable and didn’t complain that I want to stay on the boat. They offer light refreshments and great hospitality!!!

I really don’t recommend this tour if you easily get motion sickness. Otherwise it’s a good tour. My husband saw big turtles and a lot of fish.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
I’m so sorry for the bad experience. We agree completely - if you get motion sickness easily / are not good with boats then this is not the tour for you. I’m happy to hear that you do think it’s otherwise a good tour and that your husband saw a lot of wildlife / had a good time.
