Know More about this tour

After departing Kewalo Basin Harbor in Waikiki, relax aboard the luxury, 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran Honi Olani.

With seating for up to 49 passengers, the sailboat features a bar where you can use your two included drink tickets, plus order unlimited nonalcoholic beverages and provided snacks. You may also purchase additional alcoholic drinks; on offer are draft beer, sparkling wine, white wine, vodka, rum and whiskey.
Listen to music on the surround-sound stereo as you enjoy a scenic 15-minute cruise along the coast toward Diamond Head. View Waikiki Beach from the water, and keep an eye out for marine wildlife. During whale migration season (December through April), your captain makes a stop so you can catch sight of these majestic mammals.
When you reach Turtle Canyon, where Hawaiian green sea turtles are almost a guaranteed sight, put on your provided safety vest and snorkeling gear, and slip into Oahus azure waters via a safe stairway. You have about one hour to spend on a guided snorkel adventure if youve selected the morning tour, or an additional 30 minutes in the water on the midday tour.
Afterward, youre free to make use of the full restrooms and freshwater shower back on board the catamaran. Then take a seat inside the covered cabin for a build-your-own-sandwich buffet lunch (midday tour only), or relax in the ample outdoor space to snap photos of the Waikiki skyline with the Koolau mountains in the background. Sample lunch items include ham, turkey, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, chips, cookies and snack mix.

  • We did see turtles, the lunch was just sandwiches, and the captain was on his phone most of the time. Almost no information provided about turtles.

  • This trip was AWESOME! The staff was so friendly and attentive.

  • The staff on this tour was 100 amazing! I just wanted to start out like that so that when you hear why I didn't give them 5 stars, you'd know it wasn't because of the tour itself. The only unfortunate thing about this tour was the location of the snorkeling. We got to see the turtles, which were all but promised, but other than those.....we saw black fish. No other fish but the black fish. I don't feel I can blame this on the staff though because maybe it was the time of the year April. I would have liked to be closer to reefs but I think because of the choppy water, we were unable to. Other than that, it was still a fun time

  • It was the thrill of my life!!! Captain Amy and staff were fantastic and the catamaran beautiful. It was great to see the Island from a far. A very different perspective. seeing Honolulu skyscrapers, mountains, beaches and Diamond's Head. The equipment, instructions and staff assistance was excellent. But snorkeling among the green turtles was the best, really awesome. Snacks, lunch and drinks provided were delicious.

  • This was an awesome experience. The views were breathtaking and the Captain and her crew were fantastic. Well done. Mahalo!

  • Swimming with the turtles was surreal! Captain Michael and the crew were great hosts and skilled guides. Don highlighted the turtles on the reef and attentively watched over us in the water. Sailing in the magnificent catamaran along Waikiki filled our day with joy and wonderful memories!

  • Awesome to swim with the turtles and got to see the first whale of the season also which was cool. The staff were very good and we did the lunch tour with two free cocktails

  • The guides were very fun and extremely knowledgable. We got to see a pod of dolphins as well as the turtles. AMAZING!

  • A-ma-zing!!! Easy pick up - we swam with about 15 turtles - on top of that saw loads of dolphins passing by us in the water. Shane was awesome and took heaps of underwater photos for me. The rest of the crew were great guys. Recommend going early - we beat all the other tours. Awesome day

  • The pickup time and instructions were perfect. The van was right on time. Josh, Mike and Jackson were great! They gave very detailed instructions, mixed with some well timed jokes. The water was so clear. We saw spinner dolphins as an added bonus. The lunch was delish as were the drinks!
