Guaranteed to see turtles on one of our snorkel sails or you can come back for free and try again! Hop aboard the Honi Olani 53ft sailing catamaran with us for a mid-day sail and snorkel. The Honu known to us as the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle is a unique and threatened species amazing to encounter in the ocean. The Honu or Green Sea Turtles are reptiles and they breath air like you and me. They surface to take breaths of air and can hold their breath while actively swimming for 3 hours. Along our sail we look forward to seeing these turtles in their natural habitat and who knows during the Winter months of December to April you may see whales as well! If we spot whales we’ll also stop to watch those majestic mammals as they spout, jump, splash and play. We offer two different snorkel options. A two hour morning Snorkel and also a 3hour lunch snorkel.
Snorkel Sail Option One:
Our 2 hour Morning Turtle Snorkel Sail option is available in the Summer months from May thru November. This is a two hour daily catamaran sail and snorkel experience guaranteed to see turtles or return for free and try again. This two hour snorkel is a morning trip and does not include lunch but does includes drinks and snacks. The 2hour Morning Turtle Snorkel Sail departs daily from Kewalo Basin Harbor daily 8:00am. Please check in 30 minutes prior by 7:30am. Roundtrip transportation from Waikiki is included in your package.
Snorkel Sail Option Two:
Our second option is a 3 hour Turtle Snorkel Sail available all year long on a daily basis. This is a great opportunity to catch a sail on a catamaran and see the Green Sea Turtles in Hawaii. In fact they guarantee you see the Honu or you can ride free again. With a great crew and some awesome snorkeling this is the perfect way to see turtles while staying in Waikiki. Stay hydrated, there is plenty to drink onboard. Lay out on the trampolines to the front of the catamaran or stay shaded in our covered cabin where you can find the bar. We have stairs that make for easy access in and out of the ocean for snorkeling and swimming. During the Winter Season keep your eyes open as we are also likely to see Humpback Whales as they migrate. This Turtle Snorkel Sail also includes a picnic lunch on board the catamaran, buffet style at the bar. Two free alcoholic beverages are included and unlimited nonalcoholic drinks. Round-trip transportation is included from Waikiki to Kewalo Basin Harbor in this package.
A local influenced buffet lunch is included in our mid-day sail. And lunch includes a choice of either a Hibachi Chicken Wrap, a Furikake Mahi wrap, or a Veggie wrap. Sides include either house made potato chips or Kaka’ako Kitchen Macaroni Salad. Its important to stay hydrated at sea, so there are unlimited non-alcoholic drinks. 2 free bar drinks per each adult with valid government ID. Please let us know in our comment box which lunch option you would like.
