Oahu’s Best Afternoon Snorkel.

Not an early morning person? Our Afternoon Turtle Safari offers you the opportunity to sleep in and still get to enjoy the beautiful marine life and scenery that the leeward coast of Oahu has to offer! We’ll cruise the coast and snorkel a couple of different locations in search of turtles, rays, fish, and other types of ocean animals.

You may bring with you any type of beverages and snacks you like.  Coolers are welcome or you can bower ours.  Ice is always complimentary.  Check in is at the Waianae Boat Harbor, next to Spinners Cafe.  The parking is free and secure. Snorkel gear is also provided, but getting in the water is always optional.

Gear maintenance:

  • Life Vests:  Soaked and continuously dunked in a special shampoo specifically branded for cleaning wet suits, which have similar textile properties as life vests.  Life Vests are left to dry naturally in the UV warmth of the sun.
  • Fins:  Soaked and scrubbed in a solution of bleach and liquid detergent, then rinsed in water and laid out in the UV warmth of the sun to dry.
  • Masks and Snorkels:  Soaked and scrubbed in a solution of bleach and liquid detergent, then rinsed in water. Both are then soaked for at least one minute in our Steramine sterilizing solution and kept inside to dry naturally. Once dry, each set is placed in a lidded, secure plastic container. This ensures that the masks and snorkel sets are not touched again after the sterilizing process until the next guest is presented the mask from the container for their own use.
