We took an afternoon cruise that lasted about 90 minutes as we went out past Diamond Head. Price was reasonable and they provided free liquid refreshments for the duration. There were only ten of us on the boat so it wasn't crowded at all. The...More

We did the 10:30am snorkel. We had a great time snorkeling with the fish and turtles! Lots of turtles! After snorkeling, the crew gave us great drinks and time for relaxation! Would highly recommend especially for the value! Thanks for a great job, crew!

Great crew, friendly, helpful. We saw plenty of turtles in about 5-10m depth. Straight off the beach, out to the site, have a snorkel then jump back on board for some beers or Maitai's Highly recommended

Honestly, my expectations were low. I didn't expect much from a Waikiki Beach catamaran snorkel trip. But, it was inexpensive enough to risk it. Wow, was I wrong. It was so much fun! We snorkeled with multiple turtles, trigger fish, parrot fish, angelfish and more....More
