Great experience. Got to the dock and the crew came out to greet us on time. After briefing we headed out to sea close to waikiki beach and geared up for snorkeling. Tons of sea turtles and fish. Water was at least 15m deep so its not for the faint of heart. There were quite a few other groups out in the water so it did get crowded. After the snorkeling adults were offering drinks. Bartender was great. Headed back to the dock and cleaned up. I would ask for more clarification on transport. Did not know we had to register for the shuttle pickup. Not a big deal as taking an rideshare is a simple task.

EXCELLENT! -Cat motored out a little after 0800 for about 20 minutes to Turtle Canyon: about a mile off Waikiki Beach. -The provided snorkel, mask and fins fit perfect. Mask did NOT fog up. A yellow emergency blow-up vest had to be worn as well. - Put on our gear and plopped in, but had to wait for everyone before venturing out. -As promised, Turtles, Had a hard time not touching them when they turn towards us. Water/view was not as clear os the brochure, but clear enough. Reef appeared dead (colorless), but we were there for the turtles which were plentiful. -Had more than enough time to snorkel. -back on board, the crew was serving up tasty liquid libations such as the “Turtletini”. Awesome. -Motored back. Wish we could have sailed back. My only criticism since I’ve been on other hobie cat snorkel tours that sailed back. -Crew was outstanding in every respect. -price was as good if not better than others to the same spot. -Other boat tours will be there also.

It was a great overall experience once we got on the boat but we had to pay extra to get a shuttle to and from our hotel when we thought it was included. Very deceiving in the write up. Guides were great and very polite. Saw turtles, an eel, variety of fish,and was able to hold a sea urchin.
