Laugh Your Fins Off in Honolulu’s Underwater Paradise

Sick of those boring Hawaiian afternoons, napping in a hammock or sipping a piña colada? Yeah, us too! Time to mix things up with a little aquatic adventure at Honolulu Snorkeling Tours. We’re conveniently parked at Honolulu’s Kewalo Basin boat harbor, just a hop, skip, and a backflip away from Waikiki.

Take your leisurely afternoons from snooze-worthy to “I-can’t-believe-I-just-did-that” by snorkeling in Waikiki with your loved ones. Don’t worry, we’re not talking about your in-laws. Unless you like them, in which case, bring them along!

The Journey: More Fun than a Barrel of Dolphins

Speaking of fun, we’re proud to announce that our tours have been officially approved by the Waikiki Dolphin Association. How do we know? Well, their representatives, a pod of the friendliest dolphins you’ll ever meet, often tag along for the ride as we sail to the Turtle Canyon reef aboard our world-class boat, the Stugots.

Don’t panic! We’ve got you covered on the snorkeling gear front. You just need to bring a towel. And maybe some sunscreen, unless you’re aiming for the “lobster look.”

Your Afternoon Hangout: Turtle Canyon Reef

Now let’s talk turtles. And no, not the chocolate kind. We’re off to the infamous Waikiki’s Turtle Canyon reef, where the Hawaiian green sea turtles are larger than life and twice as friendly.

Your afternoon playground lies just beyond the surf line, right above what we call the turtle cleaning station. It’s here that we anchor the Stugots, setting up a kind of turtle-tastic meet-and-greet.

But wait, there’s more!

  • Swim with massive schools of black triggerfish (they’re friendlier than they sound)
  • Get up close and personal with the bustling marine life
  • Enjoy an underwater spectacle that’ll make your aquarium look like a kiddie pool

In short, an afternoon with Honolulu Snorkeling Tours is like the best day ever at summer camp, but underwater. And with more turtles. And fish. And dolphins. So, what are you waiting for? Dust off that bathing suit and dive into an afternoon you’ll never forget!
