About Turtle Canyon on Oahu
Turtle Canyon Snorkel Cruise on Oahu is one of our most popular tours! We take our customers on a one of a kind adventure to a snorkel spot you can only reach by boat. Turtle Canyon is located on the South Shore of Oahu just off of the coast of Waikiki. It is called Turtle Canyon because of its abundance of turtles in the area. We can 100% guarantee the sighting of turtles at Turtle Canyon. The type of sea turtles we will encounter here are called Hawaiian Sea Turtles or Green Sea Turtles. There are also a variety of tropical fish here.
The reason there are so many hawaiian sea turtles at Turtle Canyon is because it is considered a "turtle cleaning station". This means turtles go there to rest over the reef and get there shells cleaned by fish in the area. Getting there shells cleaned means the fish eat the algae, barnacles and even parasites off of their shells and flippers.
At any given time between 2-10 sea turtles can be spotted resting motionless above the reef surrounded by tropical fish at Turtle Canyon. They often come up for air at the surface where we take to snorkel allowing for a beautiful up close and personal experience with this majestic creatures. These animals are endangered in Hawai'i . DLNR and NOAA recommend staying 10 feet away from the turtles, and to never harass, feed, chase, ride, handle, injure, or hunt them.
