Honolulu Snorkel Tour Features
Hawaii is a paradise for snorkeling and diving enthusiasts because of its clear waters and vibrant coral reefs teeming with life. While exploring the underwater world off the coast of Oahu, you may encounter a variety of reef fish that call these warm tropical waters home. From colorful parrotfish to graceful butterflyfish, triggerfish, clown fish and many more there are plenty of fascinating species to discover while snorkeling.
Green Sea Turtles
Green sea turtles, or Chelonia mydas, are an endangered species that call the Hawaiian Islands home. These beautiful creatures can often be seen basking in the sun on various beaches around Hawaii’s islands. They have been a part of Hawaiian culture for hundreds of years and are considered sacred by many Hawaiians. Green sea turtles have also become popular tourist attractions as they inhabit shallow waters near shorelines and come to rest on sandy beaches. Despite their popularity with tourists, the population of these incredible animals has drastically declined due to human activities such as fishing and pollution. As a result, conservation efforts are being taken to ensure that Hawaiian green sea turtles continue to thrive in their natural habitats for generations to come.
