Turtle Snorkeling in Honolulu

Snorkeling is an amazing experience that everyone can enjoy. That is why it is such a popular activity here on Oahu. It doesn't matter if you are visiting, vacationing, or even living on Oahu. Jumping into the water and swimming around with the incredibly vibrant and playful marine life is an adventure you won’t want to miss. 

There are so many exciting things that you will get to witness firsthand. One of the most exciting and mesmerizing animals that live in the waters around Oahu are the Hawaiian green sea turtles. These amazing creatures are like our very own gentle giants. 

Hawaiian green sea turtles are one of the most beautiful sea creatures and have a very calm demeanor. However, they are surprisingly fast in the water and will dart away when spooked. It is recommended to give them plenty of space and only allow them to get close to you if they want to. 

Even though these turtles are gentle, they can weigh upwards of 400 pounds, so you don’t want to bump into one. It is safer for both you and them to remember to keep your distance.
