Waikoloa Catamaran Turtle Snorkel

Nestled on the sun-drenched Kohala Coast, Waikoloa is the gateway to a pristine underwater ecosystem. Discover the magic of the Big Island while snorkeling with sea turtles during the Waikoloa catamaran cruise.

This tour sets sail aboard a 54ft modern and spacious catamaran. Guests are enveloped by the gentle ocean breeze and the rhythmic sounds of the waves as we sail the coast line. Beneath the surface lies an ecosystem vibrant with life, a tropical variety of coral reef, fishes, and the stars of the show—Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Snorkeling in this serene environment offers not just a dip into the ocean but a journey into the heart of the Pacific's marine life paradise.

What to Expect

The tour begins with a warm welcome at the iconic A-Bay Beach, where the calm ocean greets you with its inviting shades of blue. From there, it's a seamless beach-loading process onto our catamaran tender, with every step guided by our experienced and lifeguard-certified crew.

Our vessel, "The Spirit of Aloha", is equipped with the highest standards of safety and comfort. This boat serves as the perfect launchpad for families, marine enthusiasts, and adventurers alike to explore the aquatic wonders of the Pacific.

We then set sail along the Kohala coastline to the treasured snorkeling destinations of Hawaii. This experience effortlessly combines tranquility with a hint of adventure. As the sails catch the gentle island breeze, one is carried through ocean waters that shimmer under the Hawaiian sun. The coastline itself is a masterpiece of nature, with lava cliffs adorned by lush tropical greenery, creating a breathtaking contrast against the deep blue Pacific. Anticipation builds with each nautical mile, as the promise of snorkeling amidst vibrant coral reefs and diverse marine life draws closer. This journey is not merely a transfer but a pivotal part of the adventure, setting the tone for the underwater exploration that awaits.

Once at the snorkeling destination, the honu, Hawaii's revered sea turtles, glide through the crystal-clear waters. Snorkeling with sea turtles is akin to entering a natural ballet, where these graceful creatures invite you to share in their underwater world. The opportunity to observe these ancient mariners up close is a privilege that comes with a responsibility to maintain a respectful distance, ensuring their peaceful existence remains undisturbed.

All necessary snorkeling gear is provided, from sanitized snorkel equipment to safety vests, ensuring you are fully prepared for your oceanic adventure. We believe that the right gear makes all the difference in maximizing your underwater experience.

After snorkeling, the crew serves a selection of gourmet wraps and refreshments, catering to all preferences with vegetarian and gluten-free options available. It's a taste of Hawaii's hospitality, coupled with the ocean's splendor.

We invite you to become part of this magnificent story, to create memories that will last a lifetime, and to leave with a deeper appreciation for the ocean's wonders. Join us in Waikoloa for a snorkeling experience that goes beyond the surface, embodying the true spirit of aloha and adventure.
