Reviews

Amazing experience! Very easy to watch turtles and swim with them!

Anna&Miriam

From the hostess at the Blue Tent to the boat crew - everyone made the experience enjoyable. Plenty of fish and turtles. Quality s...norkeling gear. And finished with a nice relaxing sail around Diamond Head. A definite do again on our next trip. Since we stayed at the Hall Koa, access was a quick walk down the beach. No hassles of finding parking on the busy Waikiki strip. more

Ken Smith

Memorable experience! The crew provided a fun relaxed environment. They were attentive to our needs but allowed you freedom to exp...lore the boat. Excellent snorkeling near the reef. My family had the opportunity to view a variety of sea creatures. Free snacks while sailing was an added bonus. Great overall experience at an economical price. more

Jay

WE CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN. THE STAFF WAS AMAZING, EASY TO WORK WITH, PATIENT, FUN, EXCITING, AND EXPERIENCED. I HAVE 2 11...YR OLDS AND IT WAS THEIR FIRST TIME. THEY DID A GREAT JOB WITH THE HELP OF THE CREW. WE WILL DEFINITELY DO IT AGAIN. more

MONIQUE

Great snorkelling amongst turtles and gorgeous tropical fish. Terrific sailing experience also, with excellent crew onboard. Drink...s and snacks available, bring small amount of cash more

Diane

Great staff who made the trip lots of fun. Saw tons of turtles, though not a great variety of other fish - but I was there to see ...turtles, and so I was happy as can be! Got a little woozy after being out on the ocean, and they immediately recognized it (without me having to say anything!) and offered me a dab of lavendar oil behind my ears/under my nose that cleared it right up. Overall a great trip, highly recommend! more

laf3g

Excellent crew made sure everyone was comfortable and also made sure everyone got to snorkel with the turtles. Had a great time e...specially for the price it was a great value more

Stephanie

Captain Ryan and his crew definitely do a great job!! You can tell they all love their job and give their customers 150% every tim...e!! We got to swim with turtles and lots of fish and every time we saw Dolphins they would go chasing them to make sure we got a close look every time. The girls at the front desk were also very helpful and when we wanted to buy souvenirs they went out of their way to go upstairs and show us everything they had. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! more

KRIS & CHELSEA

Great Trip... Saw turtles and Dolphins up close..and plenty of other marine life...all of the crew were exceptional... safety conc...ious, engaging, and fun.. paticularly the Captain. Could tell he was experienced and loved what he was doing.. Will repeat this again, as I hsve been on this trip with other providers but didn’t have as good of experience.. more

JJK FROM SF USA!!!

The crew were friendly and incredibly accommodating both on the boat and in the water. The guides were great at pointing out the s...ealife on the reef while we snorkeled. The sea turtles were everywhere! Wonderful trip and well worth the money. more

Tami & Jim

This was a blast! Also, the crew knows exactly where to go to find tu rtles - we saw at LEAST a dozen! Then, after everyone was... finished snorkeling we went for a sail and had cocktails (the Onolicious is awesome). The crew was wonderful - Thanks Captain John & Rabbit!!! more

Kate

We went snorkeling. We saw the turtles and lot's of fish, octopus, moray eels. Then we went high speed sailing. Captain John ...and Rabbit are the most fun tour guides. more

Veronica

This was a great activity. We didn't see as many difference colored fish as I thought we would, but we did swim with the fish... and see some sea turtles. The sailing part was the most enjoyable. I could have stayed out all day. The crew was friendly and helpful. more

Kathleen

Quite an experience and probably the best time of our trip to Honolulu. We experienced snorkeling with turtles as advertised, one... even came up for air in the middle of the four of us. My teenagers were quite excited. On top of that we got to see dolphins that swam with us and around our boat, which is very unusual. The crew were great and very helpful, knowledgeable and upbeat. We had so much fun we went back for the afternoon cruise the next day and had a great time drinking (adults), singing and splashing thru the waves. Also got to see more dolphins along side and a school of fish skimming up on the surface, very cool. We highly recommend this tour and operator. more

Jim

This was the best times we had in Hawaii. The Snorkeling was great we got to see Sea Turtles and lots of other cool looking fish.... After the snorkeling they took the group out sailing and it was even better. We all got drunk and had a awesome time and wonderful day. We to a Cocktail Cruise with them the last day of our trip. Most recommened. more

Jeff

Great time, especially enjoyed the sail after snorkeling!

Bob n Carol

What a great time!! Saw a bunch of turtles and lots of fish, it was great!!

Dianna

We researched extensively before selecting this excursion and it was even better than we had hoped for! We had 2 adults and two c...hildren, ages 16 and 11. One of the parents and the 11 years old had never been snorkeling before. Every member of the family had an incredible time! We would definitely recommend this excursion to anyone who wants to swim & snorkel and see some of the most incredible sea life Hawaii has to offer. It's an experience our family will remember for a lifetime!! Thanks again!! We will definitely be seeing you again on our return travels to Waikiki!! more

Brown Family

My husband & I are in Oahu in our honeymoon and we saw this and had to book it. The staff is so friendly and helpful! We sat o...n the nets, which going there was fun and what you would expect, but after snorkeling they take you sailing for a unique look at the island, but beware if you are sitting on the net..you WILL get soaked...but it truly is so much fun! They take you to the reef where turtles go to go their backs cleaned by fish. My recommendation when you swim to watch the turtles is to hang out on the side of the group. Most people will huddle over the turtles, but the have to come up for air, so if you are not in the chunk of people you will get a closer look because they will head your way for air! We saw lots of them and even some baby turtles! The fish in the water are beautiful as well and will swim all around you. I think it is definitely worth the $51! Book today and don't forget your underwater camera like I did! more

Mrs. Means

YOU DO SEE TURTLES! Amazing experience- we saw 5 large sea turtles at the cleaning station. We had a large one come up for air l...iterally right in front of us- I could have reached out and touched it! We also saw dolphins and several large fish. If you want to see turtles, this is the snorkel for you... If you're looking for a close-up of tropical fish - go to a different site. Cruise is very comfortable and a great view of the Waikiki beach front. more

Mr. Anonymous

Fantastic trip, heaps of turtles to look at and even better cocktails after the snorkel. I would recommend this tour to everyone w...ho enjoys to get in the water more

Tash

We actually are a family with kids in their 20s but no option for that. We had a wonderful time. the weather was perfect and the ...water conditions were pretty clear. The turtles were magnificent but there was other wildlife as well--Spinner dolphins, Flying fish, etc. The cruise after the snorkeling was equally as fun. Our captain also had a great choice of music playing. The time went so fast--took the morning cruise which still left us the rest of the day for the beach. Would recommend this to anyone. My only precaution--if you have a anyone in your party with issues of climbing or would not be comfortable walking or sitting on the net of the catamaran you may not enjoy this. We loved it! more

Georgia Family

Great excursion. Great guides. Worth doing! The turtles were amazing and we had the bonus of seeing dolphins...

DDP

I was nervous since it was going to be our first snorkeling excursion, but the crew was awesome and it ended up being the highligh...t of our trip! From beginning to end it was fantastic! Would book again for sure! Totally worth it! more

Susan

Capt Mike and his deckhand Travis were awesome. We saw plenty of sea turtles and a baby dolphin even did a flip for us! The sailin...g after the snorkeling was so relaxing as we cruised by diamond head. It's like an adventure that comes from a movie. The catamaran was big and comfortable. I miss Hawaii just reminiscing on this adventure. This is a must go cruise and snorkel trip. more

Mr. Anonymous

Turtle Canyon was great.

Mr. Anonymous

The staff was friendly, helpful and hospitable. The snorkeling spot was perfect! We were able to swim inches from turtles, see al...l kinds of fish and the staff members brought an octopus and starfish to the surface for us to touch. The sailing part afterwords was beautiful and the boat had a netted spot to sit in if you want to go on a Disneyland type splash ride. The signature cocktail is delicious too!! I can not recommend this enough! more

Michelle

The water was calm, the atmosphere was chill. The guides were all down to earth and funny. I would highly recommend these guys,and... their Turtle Canyon Tour. more

Victoria

We were really excited to do this tour! When we got there the tour guides were very friendly and chill. When we got out to where w...e were snorkeling I had a bit of a freak out when I got into the water. I looked down and saw so many fish under my feet! The one tour guide came over and helped me overcome my fear. I got in and out of the boat many times. We also saw so many turtles! After snorkeling we went on a nice sail while enjoying some well deserved drinks. All in all this was a fabulous for the price point of the tour! I would totally do this again! more

Gabby

What a great crew!! Cap is so knowledgable and so chill. Me and my friend had a great time here.

Jay T.

Perfect trip. Short ride out to snorkel, but diverted a few minutes to see dolphins. Snorkeling was great. Instructions for first ...timers, but we had Done before. My 14 & 17 year olds loved it. Swamnright up to turtles and fish. Hope my underwater pics come out. After about 45 minutes, came aboard for quick lunch and drinks. Then took about an hours sail out past diamond head. Very relaxing on the nets but you will get soaked. Also, I read one review about being uncomfortable and unable to sit in nets??? There were plenty of places to sit elsewhere and out of the spray. Sounds like they may have been on the wrong boat. Anyway, I highly recommend and will maybe do a sunset cruise next time. This 50+ from Georgia had a blast. more

Whit

Snorkeling was awesome! We swam with turtles and fish and even saw whales as a bonus. Captain Steve and Travis were great, very en...tertaining! Highly recommend! more

Kelly Geishert

Great trip. Up close to many sea turtles and great visibility.

Jess

This was a fantastic way to spend a couple hours. Snorkeling with turtles that were pretty fearless. A leisurely sail off of Waiki...ki. Great crew and the cutest dog ever. You may even get a chance to get up close and personal with an octopus. Highly recommended. more

Lorae

*Written by the teenager My parents and I went on this snorkel trip as kind of a last minute thing and it was absolutely amazing.... There is usually about 25 people on the boat but we got lucky and were aboard the boat with just one other family of three, also with a teenager. The snorkeling spot is perfect! I would definitely recommend bringing fins, they aren't provided or required but your experience will be much better with them. There are lots of fish but not a huge variety. The main thing is the turtles and there's plenty of those! They chill at the bottom and occasionally come up for air. If you have fins you can dive down about 15 feet and be near them. It's incredible being face to face with a turtle. The boat provides you with fun noodles if you would like to float at the top and look and that helped out the people who didn't bring fins. They also have one guy out there diving with you and keeping an eye on things which makes you feel really safe while snorkeling. After about 45 mins-hour, we got back on the boat and ate some sandwiches. There's drinks for sale as well. We then went on an hour long sail pretty far out there. If you don't mind getting wet you can sit or lay across the nets in the front and it's really fun. If you have younger kids or aren't comfortable in the water then I think you'll need to bring your own lifejacket. I'm sure they probably had them someplace on the boat but they weren't given to you and you don't really need them. All in all the trip was extremely fun and well worth the price ( which is better than any others we could find). Would definitely recommend this and we might even do it again before leaving for home. more

Cmaher55

It was a great family trip with awesome views and great crew as well.

Shelby

It was a fantastic experience! We loved every minute of it! Snorkeling with turtles was amazing! Would definitely recommend! Great... tour and fun activity more

Cara

I was a wonderful trip. Staffs and all are very nice. I saw couple turtles under water and another during the time we were sailing... around the Waikiki area. It was a great time ever. more

BEAU

We had a great time. There were sea turtles everywhere. We really enjoyed lounging in the nets during the sail portion. Thanks!

Andrew C

Vessel - was clean and in great condition. was nice to sit in the nets in front or on the main passenger holding. guides/skipper ...- so lovely, friendly and informative! snorkelling equipment - neat, clean snacks and drinks - adequate snacks provided, resonably priced drinks for sale snorkelling - Awesome for turtle lovers like me. I saw so may honu and a few dark coloured fish!! no colourful fish, so if that's what you're after, this isn't the tour for you. overall - I came to see turtles and I saw turtles :) it was a grewat bonus to sail around the ocean for a while. more

Laulike

This is our second time to join the sail. Again, it is great. We swam with turtles and saw lots of fish and big turtles. During th...e sail, we saw lots of dolphins. The sailing experience was exciting and great. The crews are nice. We will do it again next time when we come back! more

Helen

Great experience, Chris and Steve were wonderful, very entertaining and knowledgeable. Saw lots of turtles and fish!!! Highly re...commend!!! more

Joan

Was one of the best times as a family so much fun crew was friendly and very helpful. A must if ever In the area

Allison

From start to beginning, these guys were amazing. Their personalised service and knowledge of all that surrounded was second to no...ne. We were a group of 7 and were all paid equal attention. The free sailing after playing with the turtles was just mind blowing. Will definitely use these guys when next in Hawaii and recommend to anyone. Brilliant !!!! more

Helen

What a great trip. These guys are the best. It's a really good deal for the amount of time spent on the water and to have a c...rew that keeps you this entertained. I highly recommend it. more

Brad

The tour guides had great attitudes and were very nice especially when working on Christmas day. Only a 5 minute ride to turtle ca...nyon where there were 5-10 turtles as well as a lot of fish. The water was very refreshing and clear. We saw Dolphins adter snorkeling and they literally came within 2 feet of the boat. This tour was extremely worth it. This is a must if you're staying in Waikiki and want to do a fun activity. more

Matt

Great day out on the water with a great crew, fantastic experience!

Adam

Crew was awesome,gave us subway, had great snorkeling gear and saw multiple turtles and a whale...definitely do it again

nate

Had a great time very few folks on the trip. Crew was great they knew where to go to get on the turtles. Chris was busy looking fo...r other things to show us so got to see a lot more than just the turtles. Nice thing about the morning trip is that we got there before a lot of other folks so there were plenty of turtles on the reef. more

rusty

Had a great tine. They we able to accommodate us last minute. The guides were great and helpful. Saw a lot of turtles and they eve...n took the time to take us to a group of dolphins that swam around and under our catamaran it was a highlight of our vacation more

Stefanie

Awesome and fun crew with good price. We had lots of fun swimming the turtles.

Marielle

I would strongly recommend organization for doing a sail and snorkel activity. The crew was informative, very helpful, and made t...he afternoon totally enjoyable. Aftersnorkeling there was a report of a whale and that had just calved. The crew took us to the area where the whale was sighted and we, too, were able to see multiple sightings of the whale. more

Patricia

We went with this trip after looking at more expensive ones. Glad we chose this company as they were super helpful with snorkeling... safety and tips but were also fun and laid back. We saw turtles as well as all sorts of fish and a whale. Great afternoon , just wish we'd stayed out longer. more

drcallycat

Ryan & Travis were funny & helpful. We got to see turtles & 5 different kinds of fish. It started raining & the i... thought the trip was going to end, but they sailed towards the blue in the sky to keep us dry & making jokes to lighten the mood. They were very helpful & encouraging towards 1st time snorkelers.Would love to go back again for a longer snorkel for the extra money. This was a great 1st time snorkeling. more

aloha

Really good trip and got to see turtles up close, highly recommend

sharon

The 4 of us had a great time! We have 2 14 year old boys with us. They saw turtles, large ones, fish, etc. The guys on the cat...amaran were really nice; a really fun cruise. My son wants to go again; we'll see. more

Washington family

One of the greatest things we did at our three weeks vacation in Hawaii!

Signe

This tour was awesome. Great instruction and great fun. Highly recomend.

Greg

When I was looking for a snorkeling trip online Veltra's website came up. They had great reviews regarding their trips. So ...I booked a trip for the last day of our vacation, and I couldn't have ended our vacation any better. Our guides took us out to turtle canyon and let us snorkel in the water exploring the reef. We even were able to see a few sea turtles. Our favorite part was after you get done snorkeling, they take you out for a quick little sailing trip around the bay. I would definitely book another trip through these guys. more

Peter

Highly recommend doing this!! A very very amazing and memorable experience

Olivia

I've been to Oahu many times. This trip is a must. Snorkeling with the green sea turtles is amazing! They pop up right und...er you and you have to back up a bit. There is nothing quite like being one with nature. I would recommend this to any age group. more

HulaHoney

My daughter & I did the snorkel turtle canyon tour ! The staff were absolutely fantastic ! Very caring & ensuring we were ...ok . Recommend to everyone ! Certainly worth the $ . more

Trish from Sydney

We had a fantastic time...beautiful scenery and great guides (Jake and McCuddy (spelling?)). Swam with the fish and a bunch of tu...rtles and got great pics. Too bad my husband and I got sick after the snorkeling adventure. It had nothing to do with them, I guess we're just not cut out for boating, but they guides were great and took it all in stride. We did our best to still enjoy the ride back. Thanks for a great morning! more

Judy Z

We both loved this tour. Fantastic morning, crew were great, swimming with the turtles was magical and the cocktails were deliciou...s! For anyone thinking of doing this cruise - do it, you won't be disappointed! more

Elizabeth

I've been on several snorkel day boat trips and this was one of the best. The turtles were amazing and we're all around... us. We also had a wonderful sail as well. Captain and crew were Friendly and helpful. Price was great. Loved it! more

Elizabeth

A great activity - we were lucky enough to see a seal enjoying the waves amongst the surfers on our way out to the snorkelling sit...e. Plenty of underwater action going on and lots of turtles to see too. more

Wendy R

My girlfriend and I had a fabulous trip going out to turtle Canyon snorkel and then sailing afterwards, the crew was very profess...ional and courteous more

Darren

We had a blast with the Holokai Catamaran. The crew was fantastic, and we saw lots of marine life including whales, turtles, and e...ven an octopus. My only regret is that we didn't have time to book a sunset cruise on this trip. more

MIDIMan

We travelled with 3 small children. This catamaran sail was amazing. Staff took us to a great spot for turtles and assisted our ki...ds in the water and onboard. After snorkeling we saw whales and dolphins. Relaxed, fun cruise staff went above and beyond highly recommend more

Jasmine

We spent Christmas in Hawaii and went on this excursion and absolutely loved it!!! The crew was fabulous and we would do this excu...rsion again!!! more

Cyndi

We had a great time on the sail and the swim with the turtles. The crew was great, you can tell they really love what they do and ...want to make sure your excursion is a memorable one. We would do it again. more

J Hulls

Lots of turtles. Staff great.. snorkeling for about 1hour...then cruise on catamaran off the coast of waikiki for another hour.

Turtle lover

I've been diving all over the world for the past 15 years and this is by far one of my favorites. Beautiful water with great...er than 50 feet of visibility. Saw seven sea turtles up close and it was just a spectacular experience. Make sure to rent the fins from the beach, worth it. Crew was knowledgeable, friendly and just all around awesome. So was the house special drink. This is a not to missed experience with a company that makes it unforgettable. They will absolutely see me again. more

John Wood

We did some other snorkelling while in Hawaii and were quite disappointed. We were so glad we booked this trip to do some more. We... were taken out to some deeper water and as soon as we jumped off the boat we saw multiple turtles! It was amazing. I have never seen turtles this big and so many in one spot. We spent about an hour snorkelling and then went on a sail out in the sun. The boat is quite spacious and room for groups to keep to themselves or sit with others. The staff were all very helpful and fun to have a chat to. I would definitely go out with these guys again if we return to Hawaii. more

Kasevonne

Crew was great. Really nice activity right on Waikiki beach. Wish they offered fines to snorkel with. Hard to swim in ocean with... out them. more

Robert

This tour was just above and beyond! Im not a beach person nor do I like swimming but this turtle snorkel just made me fall in lov...e with the ocean. The captain and crew were great! They knew exactly how to keep everyone happy and safe! I see so many turtle, fishes and and octopus that the crew actually snatched and had us hold. I love this snorkel and will definitely be going back! more

Nunia T.

Great crew, great boat and lots of turtles. We were amazed how close to shore we were and how many turtles we saw. The turtles do ...not seem to be phased by the snorkelers and just hang around having their shells cleaned by the small reef fish. Fantastic to watch! more

Tim

Outstanding crew aboard the Holokai Catamaran...Extremely friendly, helpful and fun. They made sure all guests were instructed in ...snorkel usage before entering the water and were right there next to us in the water ready to aid for any reason. Our sail was extra exciting as dolphins swam around our catamaran, and we spotted whales too. We were able to swim amongst sea turtles and an array of fish. *Would I recommend Holokai Catamaran Turtle Canyon Snorkel Sail to my friends and family? YES!! *Would I ever take this sail again? ABSOLUTELY YES!! Reasonably priced for this adventure with buffet and they do not over crowd the boat. They even had a snorkel with a prescription mask so I could see underwater without glasses. more

Extremely satisfied

This was my first experience in the ocean and snorkelling and sailing. The crew was excellent. Professional, knowledgeable, and ve...ry fun. Felt very safe and comfortable at all times. Saw multiple sea turtles, tropical fish, an octopus, sea urchins, and an amazing view of diamond head and Waikiki beach. You won't regret it. more

Adrian

We had a group of 41 (high school trip) and they loved the snorkel/sail trip ... as well as the lunch. We would do it again!

Helmdini

My boyfriend and I were in Hawaii last week with friends and this was one of the highlights of our trip! We stayed at Sheraton Wa...ikiki so this catamaran was an easy walk right next door along the beach. They take you out about 15 mins into the ocean where we snorkeled and saw 300lb sea turtles that swim right next to you! After snorkeling grab a spot on the nets and you're in for a fun ride over some waves! The staff is fun and friendly as well! more

I really enjoyed this afternoon out on the water off Honolulu. The crew are really friendly and the boat is well set out. Everythi...ng was easy and had a great time. more

Kate

of all my snorkelling experiences in Hawaii over the past 5 years, I would say this was the best to date. Turtles are surroundi...ng you And actually come up from underneath you so you have to kick Away so as not to invade their space. Crew was very informative and friendly. Chose the 9 am option so as to have lunch buffet after a morning of snorkelling. more

Cms

It was a great day with great friends (and new friends)! We love new snorkel adventures and thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. Th...e hosts were terrific, and we enjoyed watching them enjoy their job! more

JaxDawgs Peg & Rog

Fantastic time. The turtles so amazing! The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. I loved the sail after the snorkel if we would ha...ve had extra days I would have definitely done this again!! more

Amy Dean

Enjoyed it very much. Saw several sea turtles and were given a nice catamaran cruise. Well organized and led.

JoeN

The crew (Captain Ryan, Philippe, and Erica) were awesome! Super FUN tribe of professionals. The excursion itself was amazing, eve...n for a short trip to see the turtles. I was very impressed with how the crew worked with people who weren't strong swimmers-- very gentle and encouraging. An overall awesome excursion-- I highly recommend! more

Angela

The crew is absolutely great and a very friendly bunch! Highly recommended!

Kekoa

We saw several amazing turtles and schools of fish. The crew was great - one member stayed by my son in the water until he was co...mfortable, and then dove down to get cool stuff off the sea floor to show him. The sailing portion was a blast. They let my son drive the boat which will be an awesome memory for him. I would definately do this again. more

Jessie

I had so much fun. Great value for money. There was a good amount of snorkel time (and lots of turtles!). Friendly staff! I would... go again! more

Sophie

Great Boat Great music great views lots of sea turtles ......what more could you ask for

Happy camper

Great crew. Beautiful day. Beautiful catamaran! Wish I could've done the Sunset Cruise as well.

Paula

Great time! Very professional staff and amazing experience! Would recommend again!

Dan

Absolutely amazing experience to swim with turtles. Crew were outstanding and fab music. A must when you visit Waikiki

Beverley

I always wanted to check out the Turtle Canyon, and, on this particular trip, I was able to. My only complaint was that it was on... the western edge of Waikiki Beach, which was somewhat inconvenient. In a perfect world, it would have been placed in the center of Waikiki's hotel row. I boarded the catamaran and was greeted by a very friendly and personable crew. Once on board, the staff gave us a safety briefing, then explained the protocol for snorkeling the area. Once we arrived at our destination, the captain dropped anchor and the group was off. It was not long before someone spotted some turtles. All of us watched in awe as we observed their underwater universe. We were in the water quite a while before the captain signaled us to come aboard. Then, we were treated to a magnificent sailing past Diamond Head and around Waikiki Beach. Between the snorkeling (an excellent exercise for me), the turtles and the sail, it was a perfect afternoon for me. I was back in time to go with my friend for evening entertainment. This is one of the top three activities you must do before you leave Hawaii. It is truly a magical day! more

Greg Raymer

Had a great time with this company. Everyone was very friendly and professional. Would highly recommend to anyone looking to go sn...orkeling and sailing! more

Liv

The crew is what made this adventure even better! They were VERY engaged and eager to help in any way possible! The turtles were a...mazing to see and came right up next to us. Would do it all over again! more

TKob

Perfect way to spend an afternoon in Waikiki! The Catamaran was fun by itself, but then snorkeling with the Turtles made it even ...that much better. When we decide to travel to Hawaii again, we will definitely do this trip again. Great value for the money. more

kirk

The team was absolute pro, and knew how to take care of us. Would definitely recommend them to all my friends.

Linda

Fantastic trip! Great staff. Will be doing it again next time we visit!

Liz

Great snorkling & sail. Turtle Canyon was full of giant sea turtles. Thanks to the crew for the great morning.

Gary T

This was our second time on the Holokai Catamaran, and again we had a fabulous day. Great crew! We would book again!!!

Nicole

We had a great crew. Kept it fun and entertaining. We are planning on taking this cruise every month to get out on the ocean and ...do some great snorkeling. more

Jim W

We had a fantastic time. Highly recommended!! Thankyou

bel

We had a great trip! lots of fun, great weather. The water was a little murky, was hoping it would be clearer but we saw lots of t...urtles & that was awesome We loved the cruise up past Diamondhead - perfect leghth of tim to enjoy but not get bored. I do think $60 was a little too high for what we got but I will also say my whole family incl 2 teens loved the trip & that made it worth it to me :) Non alcoholic drinks should be included I think - soda or water at least! The snacks were a nice touch tho. Really enjoyed our outing & would do it again for sure. Great crew too & kocation was perfect for us to walk to from our hotel. more

Erika

Hawaii is expensive let's be honest. This is a great trip for the money. We had a group of 15 from age 3-65. It was an amazin...g adventure for all. When we finished snorkeling, the boat ride around diamond head with cocktails and great music was perfect. Thank you to our Captain Ryan and crew for a laidback barefoot excursion. We will definitely do it again. more

Amy Ryan

My 15 year old son and I had a wonderful sail and snorkel trip. The 3 person crew took great care of us and we got to see turtles,... fish and whales. Very thankful for the cruise. Highly recommend them. more

Bob and Jabez

The crew was helpful. There were 7 large sea turtles out waiting to greet us. One of the crew members was in the water with us t...o keep us safe. We had a great time. more

HulaHoney

The crew, the experience and the other people on board from around the world!! Would do it again in a heartbeat!

David

This time we went with a group of friends, and had a wonderful day - everybody truly enjoyed themselves. We will book again next t...ime in Honolulu. Recommended!!! more

Simon

Fantastic wsy to finish our stay in Hawaii. Great team, friendly and really added to the experience. Thanks Rich, Michelle & ...Corbin. more

Gregg Charles

Fun sailing and snorkeling combo tour. Although the visibility was poor this day, they offered discounted tours for those who want...ed to come again. I got lucky and came face to face with a nice sized honu, so no visibility problem when it's literally almost in your face. Well worth the price! more

Mike

The guys were excelllent, all very well run, and took us to see several beautiful turtles up close.

Darren

Saw whales, multiple sea turtles, eels & got to pet an octopus! Great trip.. will do again on next trip!

Jan Goldberg

Thank you for being part of our memory making. It was an amazing experience. Your crew was extremely attentive and going out of th...eir way to make our experience a pleasant one. We will certainly use your services again whenever we get the opportunity. Thank you more

Freyda Calderon

Snorkeling was amazing, saw lots of turtles and other wildlife! Lovely sail after ksnorkeling was real relaxing. Great, fun and ...friendly crew. Definitely would recommend! more

Alisha

Seconds after we got to the snorkeling spot, one of the guides emerged from the water holding an octopus, which everyone got to se...e and interact with. There were probably 7 or 8 sea turtles of all sizes and ages around us the whole time we were in the water, in addition to the tropical fish and moray eels on the reef. It was absolutely incredible. more

Elise Wilson

I really enjoyed this snorkel trip. The catamaran and the crews were wonderful. I saw lots of fish and three giant turtles. The... length of the trip and the price are just right. I would totally recommended this tour. more

Jack

We had a great time. They were right on time. The boat was very clean. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the sea l...ife. They knew what the the different fish were that we were seeing, we found some huge Turtles that swam with us. Then we just sailed on the boat for an hour or so. Was a great trip and I highly recommend it. This is not a BOOZE CRUZ. This is well done and professional!! more

Greg Jones

We were a couple with a big group of family so we took up half of the catamaran anyways - it was a great experience, thorough and ...the guys were really caring for this of us who didn't feel well! Definitely recommend!! more

Aristea

The highlight of my trip to Hawaii. Awesome crew, loved the sail and got to see so many turtles. Highly recommended!

Jey

Great experience! Staff were great! Went out of their way to make you feel welcome and very accommodating! Highly recommend these ...guys! more

Maile Stoppler

This was our first time visiting Hawaii and we definitely wanted to check out a catamaran tour. This was by far the best choice f...or us. The tour was amazing! Very convenient and affordable choice. more

Jackie

We had a great time out on this cruise got to be up close to wild turtles which was great

Matt

Loved this excursion!! Family had a great time snorkeling with the crew and lots of turtles. Even an octopus too. Everyone loved t...his trip. Highly recommend wish it was longer. more

Michelle

We had great time with our kids!! Awesome! We have met sea turtles and my kids and nephews enjoyed very much. And we had dance...rs and danced with a crew. lol Thanks! more

Bridgette

My son and his friends said this was one of their highlights, only second to renting scooters but they are just 21:). Thanks for m...aking their time memorable! more

Lynnette McAlvain

All in all a fantastic experience, well organised and the hosts were very engaging and knew thier stuff. Would highly recommend an...d would also go again or one of there other experiences. Thanks guys. more

Nick J

Competent crew and very friendly. Website preparation is excellent.

Bill

Fantastic experience with a first rate crew. Well worth the value for three hours of snorkeling, sea turtles, spinner dolphins, co...lorful fish, and great sailing. Crew put safety first and had fun with everyone on the boat. Would go back in a heartbeat! My nine year old says this was her best experience of the vacation!! Thanks to the Holokai crew! more

Mike Phillips

We took the turtle snorkel cruise and the Happy shout cruise and had a fantastic time on both. The boat crew is a ton of fun! We w...ill definitely do it again the next time we are out. Thanks guys! more

Errin

Had a great time! However, they did not provide fins. That would have made it slightly easier to snorkel. But other than that I... thoroughly enjoyed it. Staff was great. more

Darren

This cruise was the perfect length for those with children. Wesaw a turtle and a pod of dolphins!!! Our family was very excited an...d loved the snorkeling!! Very reasonably priced for this experience more

Kim Nixon, Australia

We had a fabulous time on our snorkel sail. Loved the convenience of being able to walk to the boat launch, and the crew (includin...g check-in personnel) were warm and welcoming. We were elated and surprised to be greeted by a pod of spinner dolphin as we sailed out off of Waikiki -- an unusual sight! -- and my kids were thrilled to watch them racing the boat. The snorkeling itself was great...not a ton of different types of fish, but we saw a half-dozen sea turtles and a couple of eels (COMPLETELY worth the trip). Our guides even found a small octopus for us to ogle! Free snacks (chips) are provided, and water, beer, soda, and cocktails are available to purchase. They snorkel and mask they provided us were good quality with no issues. (No fins though, so if you have your own set you might want to bring them.) Highly recommended! We will be repeating the experience the next time we are on Oahu. more

CC Holland

We loved seeing all the sea turtles! It was nice to have the flotation devices and the anti fog spray for the masks. The crew wa...s amazing and so much fun! Thank you! more

cwj

The crew was super nice and very informative. I felt very safe while sailing and snorkling. A crew member snorkles with you and he...lps you spot the turtles. There were lots of turtles to be seen! We were fortunate to go on a day that there were only about 10 of us, so we basically had the boat to ourselves! It was great! I mean you are snorkling with green sea turtles and sailing in Hawaii "what's not to love"?! I highly recommend Holokai Catamaran Turtle Canyon Snorkel Sail (from Waikiki Beach) / Snorkel Cruise! more

Natalie Ezell

Was a lot of fun - saw so many turtles and the people that ran it were very nice and super helpful.

Natalie

The experience was amazing! It was more than we had hoped for. The crew- Michelle, Connor and Felipe were awesome.

Raida

Fun, interesting, relaxing and beautiful way to see the water, the skyline, the sun and sky!

Dan W.

Took my wife on this tour. We loved it. Awesome, knowledgeable staff. Got to experience sea life in clear water, right off Waik...iki, followed by an awesome sail on the catamaran, which we didn't expect. We thought it was just to see the turtles - so for us, the sailing was an awesome bonus. Highly recommended. more

John

Had so much fun. My first time snorkeling. Michelle was great. Gave Great advice made me feel comfortable in the water right away.... Lots of turtles. more

Donna

If you want a fantastic time with a great crew, Captain Ryan, Kevin and Zak, and swimming with sea turtles, go with Holokai! A gre...at bargain for a GREAT experience! We'll be back!! more

Bill Murray

This was the most fun few hours. The snorkeling was great and the guides very knowledgeable and fun. I loved it

Julie

Great trip, we were very lucky and saw 6 turtles up close in clear water. The crew were great and the sail was a delight! Definite...ly worth it! more

Sarah

Straight off Waikiki beach - fun crew. We had dolphins frolicking off our bow and escorting us halfway to Diamond Head then saw pl...enty of turtles when we snorkeled. more

Tracey

Had the best time the boys looked after us the whole time. My girlfriend had a panic attack while in the water and the guys helped... her and made her feel relaxed and she was then able to enjoy herself again. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone . We will be back Mel and Tara Melbourne Australia xx more

Mel

These guys are fantastic. Very customer centric and knowledgeable. They went out of their way to show us a good time and all wit...h a great sense of humour. They had spotted a pod of dolphins off to the left of our journey out to the turtles and took a wee detour so we could experience the dolphins. It was amazing!! Loved the turtles experience - the only recommendation here would be that the option of being able to hire a gopro on board would have put the icing on the cake. We didn't have an underwater camera and would gladly have paid to hire one to capture the turtles and colourful fish down under. The sail was fantastic and the flying fish was another added unexpected bonus. What a job! more

Lesley

I had so much fun, and most importantly I saw so many beautiful sea turtles!!! The crew was really friendly. I would definitely re...commend this tour! more

Shawntell

Awesome experience. Highlight of our trip. Value for money.

Dee

The crew were great, fun and safe environment and the turtle snorkeling was amazing

Sarah

My sister and I booked this excursion with the hopes of seeing turtles. Not only did we see them we swam with them. There were at ...least 6 of them in the area. The crew, Kevin, Ryan and Felipe were awesome. This was the best adventure with a great price. I would highly recommendations this. more

Curly haired sister

Crew were outstanding. Friendly and funny. The experience was worth triple what we paid and would have done again if we had more t...ime. Highly recommend to anyone!! more

James

We had grreat fun!! The crew was super helpful and made the snorkeling easy! We saw several turtles!

TQu

The staff was super enthusiastic, had good music playing and really contributed to a good time! All of us got to see at least 7 tu...rtles and swim within a meters distance when they came up for air, along with all the colorful fish. Truly an amazing experience! more

Victoria

Amazing crew and couldn't have asked for anything else!!! Friendly and never overbearing, we saw 6 or 7 enormous turtles!!! ... Great drinks. Highly recommended!! more

Josh Mishkin

My husband and I really enjoyed this outing. The crew was laid back and friendly. We definitely saw turtles. They had snacks on bo...ard and alcohol for purchase. Easily my favorite afternoon in Waikiki. Thank you! more

Natalie

Very friendly staff. Check in place is walking distance from my hotel. Since I do get sea sick, I took motion sickness pill an h...our before and I didn't eat until it's time to go back to Waikiki beach. Therefore, providing snacks only without meals is perfect for me. They have a guide to swim with us and find turtles and other sea life for us. Our guide even dived to retrieve GoPro for a girl in our group. After snorkeling, they rises their sail and took us to see whales. My 2 teenage boys really enjoyed the activity the whole time. more

C.L.

Fun, Professional & Knowledgeable Crew. New, clean, well maintained boat. They go out of their way to make sure everyone has a... good time! We saw turtles and whales. One of the highlights of our trip. Highly recommend! more

Dan & Kay Wilder

This was a great family friendly experience with helpful friendly staff.

VenitaT

FAMILY FRIENDLY STAFF, amazing boat, very clean. A once in a life time experience I would recommend to anyone in Hawaii.

Melanie

Our entire group, including a friend with cebral palsy, had an incredible time! The crew taught us what we needed to know & pr...ovided us with everything we needed to have a great time except towels. They knew just where to go for us to see sea turtles!!!! We also saw several schools of colorful fish. We even had an impromptu boat party with music, snacks, drinks, pirate & viking hat! It was one of the best parts of our Hawaiian vacation! Worth every penny! If we come back to Hawaii, they will definitely be apart of our vacation plans!! Thank you Holokai crew more

Amy freihaut kaiser

Absolutely amazing time! The crew of the Holokai was great! They provided everything needed for our snorkeling adventure, they kne...w just where to go to see wondrous underwater life, and everyone aboard saw sea turtles as well as several different schools of colorful fish!!! They knew just where to go! Such a great value for our money! Sun, music, snacks, sails, water, and beverages. Woohoo! If you must pick one activity while in Hawaii, this is it! You will not be disappointed more

Amy freihaut kaiser

It was a little hard to get to (the hotels are so close together) so remember to get there early! We got there just in time. The b...oat is beautiful docked on the beach. The crew were so wonderful and friendly. We saw a bunch of turtles! It was amazing when they would surface for air RIGHT NEXT TO US! I wish the water was clearer, but it was still a great experience. Then we got to lounge in the boat and sail over off of Diamond Head. We saw spinner dolphins spinning out of the water. There were about 10 other people on the boat with us, but still cozy. They offer free snacks and you can purchase drinks (water, juice and alcohol) on the boat. We were back in time to join my family for lunch! perfect morning excursion at a great price! more

Jenny H

So much fun! We enjoyed every aspect of this. Our guides took time after snorkeling to show us whales and dolphins. It was great!

Kimberly

Fun time- would’ve been better with fins in the current. I was assuming a younger child. The turtles were quite the experience. We... saw whales during the sail portion. We met fun people. The kids got to play in the water around the boat when they were done snorkeling. The crew was playful but professional. Overall it was a win! more

Lisa

This is a great activity for all ages! The crew are very friendly and accommodating and the excursion is very well organized. We s...aw several large turtles and one juvenile turtle! The best thing about this excursion is not only do you have the chance to snorkel with lots of turtles, but the crew takes you out for a sail where you can enjoy cocktails onboard. Really great way to end the perfect tour! Recommendation: if you are strong swimmer, you should consider renting fins to dive down and get a closer look at the turtles! more

Amanda

Beautiful Catamaran the Holokai takes you just out from Waikiki beach out into Turtle Canyon, so many turtles as soon as we got in... the water I was absolutely amazed! Excellent, helpful, fun staff. Drinks & snacks on board to purchase very reasonable in price. Excellent Snorkel equipment provided. Will do it all again next time I’m in Waikiki for sure!!! more

Maree O

The crew members that took us out we not only informative, but they made the trip fun! They took their time to make sure we were h...aving a nice time.... more

Brandy

Guides were GREAT, we saw MULTIPLE turtles (one even swam right up by us) and we also saw dolphins. We got to do a little bit of s...ailing at the end while drying off, having a beverage and eating the provided snacks. It was exactly what we wanted to do and I loved that it did not take up the entire day so we still had plenty of time to get get lunch and spend the rest of the day on the beach :) more

Becky

We had a wonderful time on the trip. The snorkel is the first part of the event. There were numerous fish and handful of large t...urtles. Then there is a brief sail around the area. On our sail we encountered humpback whales and a massive pod of dolphins. I realize, to a degree the whole adventure is a crap shoot. Someone that encountered no turtles, whales, or dolphins might rate the trip less highly, but we felt this was well worth our time and highly recommend. more

George

Snorkeling - Great to swim with the turtles, however no fish to really see. Provided with snorkel but not fins. maybe worth brinin...g if you want to try and swim deeper and get to the turtles quickly before they return to the bottom. Probably saw 20-25 Turtles. Sailing - Very cool - Fast & Fun. Saw Dolphins, Flying fish more

Chris

Enjoyed the turtle snorkel very much. We saw a couple of turtles. I would have rather continued snorkeling than having to stop so... we could go sailing. But a great time in general! I would recommend this activity. more

Colleen

Great.. The turtle cleaning was awesome. The crew on the boat could have been more personalable. But everything was great!

Sept 23

I took this trip on my own. The staff were very friendly and personable and laid back. The catamaran was quite large and fit every...one comfortably. Unfortunately, the water was quite silty and therefore the visibility was poor. I saw a couple of turtles and a few fish, but overall the snorkeling portion of the trip was disappointing. It sounds like from other reviews it is not always this way, so I may have just been unlucky. After snorkeling, we sailed around, which was fun. Subway subs were provided for lunch; however there were no vegetarian friendly subs - I would recommend for the future that this option be made available. Overall, the trip was good but would have been much better had the visibility been better. more

Allison

The guys who did our trip were excellent they treated me with such care. I injured myself before the trip and they were excellent ...at getting me on and off the boat. more

Dawn Sherin

If your looking to see turtles, this is the excursion for you! The staff was professional and entertaining. Lunch was provided, wh...ich had not been mentioned when booked but appreciated. The sail following snorkeling was very nice. If your looking to see lots of tropical, colorful fish this is not the excursion for you. more

Nicky

Sailing and snorkeling was really cool the boat is really nice and the ones in charge are funny and in good spirit

Chris

wish I could have went snorkeling but due to a sewage spill it didn't happen but hey its happened but I'm not mad !!!!!!... this place was very nice about contacting me and making sure I received my money back on time!! more

Linda Tierney

I saw 3 and one came up to the surface beside me! Very cool. Unfortunately there wasn't much else to see, some fish. Stay ne...ar the guides in the water as they know where turtles hang out. Crew was outstanding! Catamaran ride was fun! more

Lynn

Staff was very friendly and helpful. When we got to the location, was expecting a little more based on what I read on the site. Wh...ile we did see a couple turtles, they were few and far between. Also not a lot of fish. There were scuba divers in the same spot which made it tricky. Afterwards, they took us out for about 30 minutes which was great. I know the snorkeling is sparse on Waikiki so everyone is going to the same spots. Something I wasn't used to. Tip Fins are a must. They don't provide them. more

Lisa

I was in Hawaii for business but had a free morning. So I booked this trip as a solo traveler. I think I was the only solo person,... everyone else were families. I felt a little odd b/c no one really talked to me, guides included. The guides were very good though - responsible and good intro speech. So happy that one of them found an octopus to touch (though I felt bad for the octopus). The turtles were adorable and came up to breathe very close to us snorkelers. Then we sailed around the bay for a bit which was lovely. I'm very happy I fit this excursion into my business trip. I was a little unclear on tipping also - the fee said all gratuities included, so I didn't bring any cash. But the guides said to please feed the tip jar if satisfied. Which I was, but I hadn't planned on bringing cash to tip. So that was a little uncomfortable as I didn't want to look like I didn't enjoy myself - I truly did! more

Sheesh

It was a good sailing and snorkeling activity. It could be better with some more time snorkeling and maybe in different places w...ith more fish variety. more

Diogo

The crew were great. The swimming was pleasant enough and we did get to see turtles up close which was definitely the point but th...e water was quite cloudy and visibility was a bit too low for you to really see much. Not the tour companies fault at all... you get what you pay for. more

Emma

Was a really nice and relaxing sail. Everyone was really nice. Snorkelling gear and floatation vests were provided. Packet snacks ...like chips and candy were provided on board. You just have to pay for drinks (even bottled water). I would suggest bringing your own water. more

doraemon

We had a really nice time. Saw some sea turtles and some fish. Unfortunately it was windy and a boat of scuba divers scared off th...e fish and turtles or should I say made it hard to keep up with them. The crew was completely awesome. The sail to the other side of Diamond Head was amazing. We had a really good time. more

James & Shay

It was worth the money. Staff was courteous, friendly, and all around had the island hospitality. Seeing the turtles was a great a...dventure. I think we will go again. more

Chels

crew was competent and friendly. it was an easy boat ride to turtle canyon. crew kept close eye on snorkelers for swimmer safety... and protection of turtles. I saw the crew actually pick up plastic bag debris drifting by the site (left by someone else) to prevent the turtles from ingesting it. That's my kind of tour operators!!! After snorkeling, Holokai set sail and we had a fantastic wind powered ride. it was great. I will use them again, and I will recommend them to my friends for when the come to Waikiki. more

mrfujisan

Great time saw lots of turtles and fish also sailed alittle

mike

It was an experience unlike any other we have done. The guides knew where the turtles were and were very happy to answer any ques...tions! We saw so many turtles! I wish there had been a little intro to snorkeling for those who haven’t done this before. Good memories were made. more

Rose

A fun couple of hours snorkelling. Its expensive but enjoyable and memorable

Glenn

We wanted to snorkel with sea turtles and we were not disappointed. Great crew who were very helpful getting us to the right locat...ion and then finding the turtles for us. We saw about 8 turtles in all. A wonderful experience. more

KirstenP

We went snorkeling and saw a lot of turtles above the water. Water wasnt clear enough to see anything with snorkeling gear so they... offered free open bar, free sandwiches and cookie. more

Sharyceb

Had a blast w/ the best crew on board! Very friendly, professional, and fun. They made sure my kids were comfortable and safe. Wou...ld cone back again more

Cara

Positives of this tour are it's location right outside the Outrigger Reef, the water was warm and saw quite a few turtles dol...phins and fish, and overall good value for money. The staff were just ok, nothing special. No commentary on anything except a few minutes on the rules and how to snorkel. The big negative for us was how uncomfortable the ride was on the catamaran for almost the entire time on the boat. We wanted to sit on the bench seats provided, but was told we would have to all sit on or around the netting area to help balance the boat. For my wife and I this became extremely uncomfortable after a short while, with no cushions or anything like that provided to make it somewhat comfortable. It ruined the cruise for us. Next time we will book a tour on a bigger boat that provides seating for it's guests. more

Mr. Anonymous

The snorkeling part was good. Remaining hour and a half was the most boring tour I even had in Hawaii. Complete waste of time and ...money. Would not recommend this tour to anybody. more
