We had an awesome time! My wife had right knee replacement surgery in August. One of the lifeguards was actually an occupation therapist and helped her get out to the turtle cleaning site so she didn’t miss anything! It was amazing seeing the turtles and we saw a rare Hawaiian seal as well. The crew was fantastic and very accommodating, the snacks and beverages provided where right on point. We will highly recommend this snorkeling tour to our friends and family. Mahalo and Aloha!

A team of five young people welcomed us on their boat. All the shoes from the guests were put in a big box, which was locked in a wagon. There is a small toilet on the boat, but if that's a bit too small for you, you can also use a public toilet in front of the dock, which has no doors. We took the boat to a place where three other boats were already waiting and many people were swimming in the water. The place was about 2-3 kilometers from Waikiki Beach. The whole trip is not recommended for people who get seasick easily. We saw several turtles, which was very impressive. In my opinion there were a bit too many people in the water ie. the group is too big. The water they had to drink on deck tasted stale, so I recommend the soft drinks. Snacks are free on the boat.

The guides were super knowledgeable and very friendly. We felt safe and welcomed on this trip. The water itself was absolutely beautiful on our trip out - at 35ft deep you could see every single rock on the bottom of the ocean floor. We saw 6-8 Sea Turtles in only about an hour of snorkeling and it was truly an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend!
