Ko'Olina Snorkel and Dolphin Catamaran

Location: West Oahu

Our Morning Calm or Afternoon Adventure snorkeling tour leaves when the sun is hot and the water is cooling. Jump on in and snorkel with turtles and a variety of tropical reef fish.

The best snorkeling conditions of Oahu are on the Westside of the island! This Snorkel and Dolphin Cruise will take you to the unspoiled Waianae coastline on the island of Oahu where dolphins, turtles and other Hawaiian sea life play and flourish. Take a dive into one of Hawaii's most secluded snorkeling spots, watch dolphins as they glide through the cool waters of the Pacific and view the most stunning scenic vistas.

Our West Oahu Catamaran Snorkel Adventure is the premier experience that will take you up the entire Waianae coast (west coast of Oahu), from Ko’Olina Marina to various points along Oahu’s western coastline. Learn about the magical history of our islands and the Waianae coastline as our crew enchants you with legends and history of this beautiful land.

Get your video and still cameras ready, because we’ll see with Dolphins (Nai’a), Whales (Kohola) [winter season], Green Sea Turtles (Honu), and Flying Fish (Malolo) along the way! When we do meet up with the dolphins and whales, we’ll stop the boat, and sit with them as our knowledgeable crew will tell you everything you want to know about these amazing and beautiful creatures.

After an exciting ride up the coast, we’ll enjoy an hour of snorkeling in the pristine waters off Oahu's western coastline. We provide the best of snorkeling equipment for you to enjoy as you swim in the sparkling blue water of Makua amongst unspoiled reef and sea life where no other tours take you.

While still tingling from your snorkeling and dolphin watching experience, enjoy our sumptuous lunch buffet, and sip on a tropical Mai Tai, an ice-cold beer or any of our other beverages to your heart’s content. Let the cool Hawaiian breeze relax your soul as we make our way back down the coast to our luxurious Ko ‘Olina Marina home.
