Our knowledgeable crew will share legends and history of O’ahu and the Hawaiian islands on our journey. We often will encounter a pod of dolphins or spot a whale (in the winter months) and when we do we will stop the boat and sit with them for a while, all while sharing interesting facts about these incredible creatures.
After our ride up the coast, you will have the opportunity to jump into the pristine waters of west O’ahu and enjoy an hour of snorkeling. We will provide you with state-of-the-art snorkeling equipment and expert instruction for beginners from our friendly crew members. The sparkling turquoise waters of the Makua coast offer beautiful coral reefs to explore that host a variety of marine life, such as the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle or Spotted Eagle Ray. We are the only snorkeling tour to take you to this special site!
Back on the boat, you can enjoy a warm fresh-water shower and help yourself to our tasty dinner buffet and a variety of beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Take in the last warm rays of sunshine as the sun sets and we make our journey back down the coast to our home at Ko’olina Marina.

We offer you an hour of premier snorkeling in one of O’ahu’s best snorkeling sites, accessible primarily by boat.

The coastline off of Waianae on the westside of O’ahu is one of the best places on the island to encounter marine life! During the winter months, migrating humpback whales, or kohala, are commonly seen as they spout torrents of water from their blowholes or smack their fins upon the water. A pod of Hawaiian spinner dolphins also frequents this shore! Underneath the surface, there are stunning coral reefs with technicolor reef fish to swim alongside. Often you may spot friendly honu, Hawaiian green sea turtles, and even the Spotted Eagle Ray.
