Jesiah_T, Sep 2023
Great music, beautiful scenery and unforgettable moments. The staff was not only hilarious but extremely thorough, they make you feel safe and as a first time snorkeler I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Thank you to the whole crew onboard. (P.S. make sure you get your lung strength up lol)

Fun and memorable
Travis_B, Sep 2023
Super fun time and the guides were very kind and informative. They made sure everyone had a good time and were always willing to help out. One of them even let us hold a sea urchin which was sick. Would recommend to anyone wanting to have a fun and memorable experience.
Helpful and friendly crew!
Keith_M, Aug 2023
The crew was extremely friendly and always willing to help. Also, they were very polite and had a great sense of humor. I would recommend them 100%
Do NOT use this tour operator
Julia_R, Aug 2023
We received directions 40 minutes before tour, that was not enough time. When arrived to the pier there was no any signage and no one knew where it is. Complete waste of money and reading other reviews sounds like it is very unsafe company to use. Beware.
Awesome day!
Kimberly_R, Aug 2023
A wonderful experience on our vacation. We would definitely do this again. The staff were pleasant and very helpful.
Absolutely Fantastic Trip to see Turtles
Amber_K, Aug 2023
Such a great trip - amazing catamaran, fantastic friendly, professional, helpful crew. Would do it again anytime!
Snorkle with turtles didn’t disappoint! Thank you Moana 🤙

Such a great crew on the Moana! My family of 9, including teens and Grandma had a wonderful time. Thank you
Family Friendly, lots of turtles, $6 cocktails
Emily_C, Aug 2023
Moana crew is always amazing! In the one week we were out there, we had the same boat (different crews) for two different excursions. The crew is very friendly, happy to take pictures of you, and overall amazing and informative. I went with my boyfriend and we had a lot of fun, just note it is more family focused. Lots of kids and splashing, which would often scare the turtles/fish away, but that is bound to happen regardless as they take you to a popular turtle area. My goggles fogged up at one point (due to my breathing) and the designated lifeguard noticed and immediately took them back to the boat to get cleaned, bringing it right back so I could see and enjoy the rest of the experience. Overall, I highly recommend, well worth the price (especially since almost all these turtle snorkeling excursions takes you to the same place). Overall, crew was amazing, saw several turtles and fish, and cocktails are offered after swimming.

The captain and crew were super friendly and patient with everyone. It was smooth sailing and a fun time. Would recommend. Tip: the pier is hard to find so be prepared to look for it.
Fantastic experience and a definite highlight
Laureen_M, Aug 2023
We had such a fantastic time on this snorkeling tour. The catamaran was really spacious and comfortable, and the entire crew were A++, high energy and friendly, and made us feel comfortable from the get go. They also help with beginner snorkelers if it's your first time. Parking at the docks was also easy to find. If you're looking for a fun snorkeling experience on Oahu, this is exactly what you need.
Great trip, great crew, use sunscreen!
Damian_N, Aug 2023
Great crew, beautiful waters. I need to write 100 characters minimum on this review, which is annoying. But everything on the trip was smooth and wonderful. Just remember to use sunscreen.... the kind that doesn't hurt the reef. I thought, "Just an hour or two in the sun at noon, could it be a big deal? Nah!" Well, I should submit the photo where I look like a boiled lobster. But that wasn't their fault, they said to use sunscreen. I'm a dummy, according to my wife who didn't travel with me. Still, I would do it all again in a heartbeat. With sunscreen. Is that 100 words yet?
Best Catamaran in Waikiki
Justin_T, Aug 2023
Nicest boat/catamaran in the bay amongst all the other snorkel tours tied off in the same area. Great crew as well. Saw 4 turtles, several that surfaced for a great look.
Worth it!!
Shawn_W, Aug 2023
We saw lots of turtles! It was a great crew, they were super helpful and friendly! Great location! We had a great time.
Great snorkel adventure
RobertThomas_T, Aug 2023
What a nice crew, they take good care of you. We even saw dolphins on the way there and they took us to a place with lots of sea turtles. I was lucky to even spot a small reef shark! They even have a full bar on board, but we were to busy snorkeling to really make use of it.
Take the whole family!
Tiffany_K, Aug 2023
We had a blast as a family on this sea turtle snorkeling adventure. Our 5 year old got to cross swimming with sea turtles off his bucket list! The boat and crew were accommodating, hospitable and overall one of my favorite excursions I’ve ever done and we are well traveled. Plan to come early with extra cash to grab a pineapple smoothie from a food truck and bring extra cash to tip the crew because they deserve it! Can’t wait to sail the Moana again some day!
