"Absolutely awesome tour!"
August 2016
This tour was incredibly fun. We were picked up at our hotel in Waikiki and taken to the harbor, where we boarded the catamaran. The guides were excellent. We saw a lot of green sea turtles and even saw a shark in the reef. We had plenty of time to snorkel and enjoy the turtles. They had a nice lunch for us after snorkeling, along with 2 free alcoholic beverages and unlimited nonalcoholic beverages. We took a nice long sail before heading back to the harbor, where the van took us back to our hotel. We would definitely recommend this tour, and we would do it again if we ever go back to Hawaii.

"Great low key adventure"

Everyone was super friendly. The drinks were great, and you couldn't beat the view. My Mother-in-law get seasick pretty easy, but the ride was flat enough, and gentle enough that she didn't have a problem. I would highly recommend this for a relaxing evening out. It looks good for kids too. I’d say five and up. You board the boat just north of Lava-lava on the beach. Hey, you could go there first and have a Mai-tai while your waiting.

My husband and I went diving with Hawaii Nautical on Oahu 5 days with friends. Great boat and crew! We saw turtles, spotted eagle rays, octopi, variety of morays and tons of fish, shrimp, crabs, white tip sharks, caverns and lots of swim throughs and structures. Mark and Warren were great at finding unique and rare wildlife. They definitely know the areas quite well. Wreck dives were stunning. Highly recommended ! We’ll be back next year!

"Snorkeling with Sea Turtles"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

What an awesome adventure! I chose to do the afternoon turtle snorkel sail and lunch. Mitchell was my driver and since I was the first one picked up, we chatted for a bit enroute to get everyone else. The entire crew were amazing: Lisa, Greg, Don and Mitchell. It was a very chill and relaxed environment. The waves were a bit choppy as we were at sea shortly after 10am, but the weather was beautiful. Saw a lot of sea turtles. We have to remain 5 feet away from them at all times and I almost broke that "rule" until a member of the group pointed out one RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME. Wish I had a camera. Outside of the water being a bit rough because the tide was coming in, the entire outing was perfect. Lunch on the boat was sufficient and two alcoholic beverages are included with the price. The crew definitely earned their tip! We had roughly 39 people total. Once we were able to move about the boat there was plenty of space. If you forget to bring sunscreen there is some provided on board that's safe for the environment. Any spray on sunscreen must be used before getting on the boat. Early on it did feel like at times people in my tour were kind of on top of each other at first, but we were able to get more space as time passed on and people swam back to the boat. The guides do a really great job of pointing out the turtles! Totally worth it.

Totally exceeded expectations. We went on sunset cruise western Oahu. Brie and Brie were with us. Food was billed as pupu but served as dinner. Simple but just right. Drinks included! Great value as we booked through concierge at Marriott Vacation Club. We saw dolphins, took great photos, magnificent sunset as sail was hoisted. Totally recommend this excursion for all ages.
