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 Oahu’s azure waters via a safe stairway. You have about one hour to spend on a guided snorkel adventure if you’ve selected the morning tour, or an additional 30 minutes in the water on the midday tour.
Afterward, you’re 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 Ko’olau mountains in the background. Sample lunch items include ham, turkey, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, chips, cookies and snack mix.

Your tour ends with return to the harbor.

  • 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!

  • Punctual pick up at hotel. Fun all the way.

  • awesome staff! great boat! and the turtles.....wow! liked this so much I booked another snorkeling adventure with them - it was even more amazing! cannot say enough great things about this company, its professionalism, its care, its staff and their care for nature. Highly recommend!

  • The catamaran sail and snorkelling was fantastic - we saw heaps of turtles and fish, and dolphins on the sail out. The boat crew were great, and the lunch simple but tasty.
    I did have difficulties in booking the tour as the date needed to be changed as the operator could not offer transport on our originally booked date - it required multiple emails and a phone call to ensure the booking was transferred correctly to the new date, and even then on the day before the person who called to confirm had the number of guests wrong.
    Our transportation to the harbour was also not great - we ended up stuck in a stuffy van for almost an hour whilst the van dropped off earlier guests and picked up new ones, especially as there was a mix up with one of the hotels. We would not hesitate to do the tour again, as it was actually wonderful, but if we did we would organise our own transport via a taxi or Uber or even walk which would have been quicker.

  • This tour was amazing. The cool leaders were lovely blokes. Our safety briefing and equipment use explanation was thorough but funny. I saw 5 turtles so beautiful and graceful. Very casual, fun tour.

  • It was great. The crew was outstanding and the trip was enjoyable.

  • This is a really great tour! I highly recommend. It makes me want to go back to Hawaii. When they state you will see turtles, they were not kidding. One came right up beside us in the water. We also saw several dolphins on the way out.

  • I booked this for myself and my boyfriend to attend near the end of our holiday in Hawaii and it was definitely a highlight of our trip! We saw multiple turtles and shot some great footage on our GoPro - we were also lucky enough to see dolphins swim past as we ate our lunch on the catamaran this was included as we booked the midday trip. The crew were so friendly and easy to chat to which made the experience for us. You spend a lot of time out at sea on the boat with great views of Honolulu and the group we were with wasn't too big so there was a lot of room to roam the catamaran. Remember suncream! Snorkels and flippers are provided, a couple of people in our group weren't comfortable with the slightly choppy water once they were in so they watched from the boat which might be something to consider if you're not a strong swimmer. It was amazing to see the animals up close and we loved the whole experience. Cheers!
