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.

Overall it was a good trip. The instructors were great and we were able to see dolphins, turtles and a variety of fish. The only drawbacks are the price of the tour and the number of people on the tour as well as what appeared to be two other boats of people at the same place. It's difficult to snorkel among that many people. But the joy and excitement my daughter had over seeing turtles made it worth it.
