This cruise was so much fun. The crew was really friendly and there were about 3-4 crew in the water with us which made novice snorkelers more comfortable. Overall, loved this cruise.

-This boat departs from Kewalo Basin Harbor. The parking lot was crowded so Uber/Lyft or taxi is best.
-Bring sunscreen, towel, change of clothes for after

After we finished the snorkel sail, we headed over to Kakaako to grab lunch!

  • Great day out on the water!

Very professional operation

Reviewed by: Mike, 2023/07/22

Everything was well organized and staff was professional. The beat part of this trip is that this is one of the first boats out to turtle canyon before the circus arrives. Get in early and get out while there are few people in the water.

Amazing Crew!

Reviewed by: A. Vergara, 2022/03/31

- Crew was super friendly and helpful. Family-owned.
- Drinks and snacks were provided during the tour
- Best part: spotted a whale close to our boat on our way to Turtle Canyon; seen turtles and lots of fish during the snorkeling session
- The current was a little strong in the afternoon but still worth the trip
- Overall super fun experience
- Definitely recommend!

The crew was amazing! They did the utmost to ensure that we saw everything we could on our trip. And although we weren’t late, I saw the captain calling other groups that were, to check on them which I thought was really cool. They really did a great job to take care of our safety and enjoyment! Thanks again!

Great experience

Reviewed by: Annie H, 2022/02/24

What a great experience! Our group had two people in their thirties and two in their sixties and everyone had a blast. We saw so many turtles, a few schools of fish and some other unique fish around. Great tour for those wanting to try snorkeling. The staff was amazing too! Although we didn't have kids in our group, the staff was interacting great with those family groups aboard with us.

Perfect trips for a group of first timers.

Reviewed by: Adam W, 2022/02/24

Living ocean tours is a great family business that created a great experience for our group of first time snorkelers. The 5 person crew was friendly, knowledgeable and helped us have a fun and safe trip on the water. We were able to see multiple turtles including one that came up about 10 feet away from us. Also, plenty of fish to see in between turtle sightings. Plus we got to see a pod of dolphins when we first arrived at the reef.

My wife and I cam to Oahu for the first time with one thing in mind; we HAVE to go snorkeling! We initially chose Living Ocean Tours based on the affordability, but the experience was SO much better than we expected for the price! Not only did they thoroughly go over ever aspect of snorkeling, they GUIDED us to the good spots to see turtles, fish, and even some awesome reefs! The guides were even outgoing and easy to talk to which just made the whole experience that much better. My wife and I HIGHLY recommend checking them out. Thanks to the captain for getting us out into the ocean, and thanks to Joe and Preston for finding some awesome spots to see sea turtles! MAHALO
