Just a stone's throw from the sun-soaked sands of Waikiki is a special reef location known as Turtle Canyon. Ride across the waves in a catamaran, and then dive in with snorkeling gear to scope out the fascinating world of Hawaii's endangered green sea turtles.
It's not just a scene from Finding Nemo—in the wild, reef cleaning stations really do exist. Marine animals like turtles and rays swim to a designated space on the reef and hover there as cleaner fish or shrimp swarm around them, busily cleaning debris or parasites off of their aquatic clientele. Turtle Canyon, just off of Waikiki, is one of these stations, and it's particularly known for drawing a large number of honu (sea turtles) looking to get their shells shined.
Hop aboard the Island Magic and lounge in nets over the water or sit up on deck to take in views of Diamond Head and the beachfront hotels of Waikiki. When you reach Turtle Canyon, grab your snorkel and mask and jump into the balmy waters.
Your guides are all PADI-certified divers, and know the reef like the back of their hand. Swim along behind them as they point out hard-to-spot creatures like tako (octopus) and vana (sea urchins) huddled against the rocks. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, and watch as these endangered creatures—one of the most ancient on the planet—drift and swim around you.
After your snorkeling tour, you can head back to the boat, where you can purchase a drink and lounge in the sun before your ride back to shore.
