Snorkeling with sea turtles and tropical fish!
Aug 2021
We had the greatest time snorkeling-- maybe one of the best snorkel experiences ever! The boat is easy to find and there is ample parking. There was a short sail out to where we would snorkel so the majority of the trip is spent snorkeling! The sail is not rocky. The crew was amazing- Jessie, Anthony and Quinn went above and beyond to ensure that we had a great time! They spent time teaching us how to equalize our ears and dive to the bottom of the reef if we wanted (~15-20ft?). They would go to the bottom to show us sea cucumbers, star fish and even a baby octopus! We saw sea turtles and tons of beautiful fish. There are plenty of nonalcoholic bevies, beers, and cocktails. There was not a lot of red wine (but likely this is not in high demand on a day time snorkel trip!). It was a little crowded with ~40 ppl but still enough room for everyone to sit and see things.

This is a snorkeling trip with life vests. They have excellent and funny guides. This trip is great for all levels and no swim experience required. We saw pod of spinner dolphins and two sea turtles — and also a baby sea turtle!

Awesome experience!
Jun 2021 • Family
Our family of 5 did the 2 hour snorkeling cruise from West Oahu and it was AMAZING!
The catamaran was new and very clean with a shaded seating area and bathroom. We enjoyed the fresh air and beautiful scenery along with snacks and drinks on the boat. Anthony, Ian and Tyler were an AWESOME Crew. Very attentive to the needs of all the swimmers and safety was their #1 priority.. GIVE THEM A RAISE!
Would highly recommend this snorkeling expedition 🌺

Great crew, great snorkeling and tour experience
Thank you to Anthony, Bri and Ian for a great experience in November 3. We had the whole catamaran for ourselves and the crew were great making our experience more enjoyable. Fully recommend. We dived off the boat and snorkeled on a reef.

Whales and Turtles on Oahu

Booked this excursion through Aulani and it was amazing. I have done many snorkel trips before but the crew was amazing and the service was great. Nice catamaran and plenty of time in the water and whale watching.

The west side dolphin adventure is one of my favorite things to do on Oahu. I really enjoy my time with Hawaii Nautical! 5 star guest service! The boat crew was attentive and jolly! We got see a pod of dolphin and even snorkel next to a turtle!!! We saw different variety of fish too! I highly encourage everyone to give them a try! They are my new favorite boat !
