An Unforgettable Experience Swimming with Sea Turtles in Honolulu
During this Honolulu snorkel tour, you have a chance to spot and swim with giant Hawaiian green sea turtles! These turtles are found in seas around the Pacific and Atlantic oceans. Green sea turtles are known for their unique nesting practices. When the time comes for the female to lay her eggs, she will walk onshore, dig a hole, and lay her eggs in the sand.
Later, hundreds of hatchlings can emerge from these nests, though many of them are taken by predators before arriving at the waters’ edge. While many of the young turtles will not survive, some can live as long as 80-100 years and weigh up to 500 pounds.
Green sea turtles are at risk due to many reasons. In some areas, they are hunted, while in other areas, water pollution has caused their food sources to become toxic. Please help save our turtles by using a reef safe sunscreen and also being sure to use reusable water bottles and help protect our precious resource!
Enjoy this unique opportunity to see these rare creatures up close and peacefully swim with them just outside of Waikiki on this unforgettable snorkel excursion! You can even see turtles from the boat if you don’t feel like getting into the water!
Pure Aloha Adventures’ snorkel tours include your gear and certified instructor; you’ll be outfitted after the beautiful boat ride to Turtle Canyon in Waikiki where you will get to snorkel with turtles and view the live “turtle car wash” at this one of a kind snorkel location.
