Turtle Snorkeling in Oahu

Quick Details


Our Turtle Snorkeling Oahu Tour

Snorkel With Turtles is a company that operates a turtle snorkeling boat trip out of Hawaii Kai on the southeast shore of Oahu. This turtle snorkeling tour has been operating mid May 2021 post Covid-19 shutdowns and we haven’t run a tour yet that hasn’t seen green sea turtles in the wild.

It is a 2.5 hour tour dock to dock. All snorkeling equipment is included. Turtle snorkeling guides are in the water and provide basic instruction on snorkeling for first timers. Floatation is provided, and there are even underwater scooter powered rescue floats for weaker swimmers.

Check for availability

Tours tend to sell out, but you can cancel for a full refund with 24 hours notice.  Turtle Snorkeling Oahu is a popular activity, we recommend that book early, and you can always come back and cancel if your plans change.

What does turtle snorkeling Oahu tour entail?

While there are quite a few turtle snorkeling tours to choose from on the island. Here is how our tour works.

Turtle Snorkeling Oahu additional free online training

While the turtle snorkeling Oahu tour we offer is snorkeling only, it is associated with the scuba diving shops Island Divers Hawaii and Honolulu Scuba Company. The shops sponsor free online training for those who would like to prepare as much as possible for the experience.  It is not required.  The guides are going to cover this material in the briefings before you get in the water.  However, if you would like to learn a little more online, here is how you do that.

Create a free account with SSI and download the MySSI app

Once you have the MySSI app opened, navigate to Programs and Cards. One of the free programs you will find there is Snorkel Diver.  That is the program relevant to our experience, but once you are there you may find other free online learning that interests you.  Blue Oceans is an interesting ocean conservation program. There are others: Try Scuba, Try Freediving, Mermaid. All of it is free, so enjoy.
