Turtle Canyon snorkel is a must!
Jul 2021
This was a highlight of our trip. You definitely see lots of turtles (there was a group of 6 of them swimming around us). There are a lot of other groups out there, too, but you maneuver around each other and can space out. The crew was great...funny, thorough, helpful (some passengers had some sea sickness and they were attentive and caring). The only downside is the cost is a little high and you have to walk to their office and walk as a group down to the boat. It was hot and took about 40 minutes of time. I now it's to do headcount, temp checks (for covid) but it was hot and we just wanted to meet at the boat. All in all, so glad we did it. Group of 8 of us and we all loved it!

Snorkeling with this group was awesome. They made the trip enjoyable and fun. The crew was very helpful and compassionate when my son became very ill with motion sickness. I loved how they supplied me with prescription goggles so I can enjoy my snorkeling experience with the turtles.

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We're sorry that your interactions with other guests were not ideal. Our crew is highly trained and, while they are very attentive to our guests, if a guest is doing great swimming and exploring on their own, they tend to let them be a little more independent to enjoy their time. Throughout the snorkel, they will keep giving general directions to keep the group together or point out sea life. However, we will be sure to remind them to engage with everyone. We hope you'll join us on another sail to enjoy a sunset and some drinks or an afternoon on the water. Mahalo for choosing Holokai and a hui hou!

A must do adventure
Jul 2021 • Family
A must do! A great afternoon swimming with these beautiful turtles and other sea life. The crew on board was so nice, very helpful and knowledgeable. We had guests of all ages and abilities and they helped everyone to enjoy the trip without making anyone feel like a bother. Can’t say enough about the crew. Our family really enjoyed this adventure. The catamaran is large and well equipped-plenty of room to enjoy.

5 Star Experience
Jun 2021
Holokai Turtle Canyon Adventure was our best excursion the week we were in Waikiki. On June 14th, our party of 10 adults and teenagers loved every minute of it. I must say our staff was the BEST! From Capt Ryan, to his mates Mike, Kevin and Austin. They took their time ensuring safety and made it a fun experience especially for our first time snorkelers. Austin and Kevin stayed in the water with snorkelers making sure everyone was safe pointing out wildlife such a baby octopus in Austin hands, and the beautiful turtles. Once on board after snorkeling Mike made fabulous speciality "Holokai Hooch" drinks, absolutely delicious!! We enjoyed a fabulous ride along the coast of Oahu seeing dolphins, a lighthouse and other sea-life. This crew made a memorable experience and I highly recommend to put this as a "must do" when in Waikiki.

Really great way to do a little snorkeling and sailing.
Jul 2021
This was a great excursion! It was worth every penny. They have their operation down pat from check-in through disembarkation. The water was a little murky due to high surf conditions, but it was still a lot of fun. It was a really great way to experience a little bit of in-water activity and sailing. There was still plenty of day before and after for other activities. At less than $100, the price was right.

Best experience ever!
By far one of the best experience ever! The crew was amazing, friendly and very knowledgeable about the waters of Hawaii and the wildlife. The turtle area was packed with boats at first so the captain did a short sail out into the ocean and came back around. The sail was beautiful and breathtaking views of Waikiki. Make sure to wear reef safe sunscreen and relax for amazing views of the coral and beautiful turtles!

Awesome Sail and Turtle Adventure
May 2021
What an awesome sail! The crew is professional and enthusiastic. They strike the right balance of safety, fun and respect of the guests. The snorkel equipment was in good shape and the boat was in excellent and clean condition. We loved the snorkeling and saw turtles :) I would highly recommend this outfit.

Fun and adventure out on the water
Apr 2021
Enjoyed yet another sail with Holokai Catamaran. Fun crew with an awesome snorkel guide. Sailing out into the blue water was exciting too. We will be back next week for our sunset sail on Mother’s Day. Thank all of you.
