Head out along the breathtaking North Shore coastline to some of the finest snorkeling locations on the island. With a stop along the way at the famed Waimea Bay, you will be able to swim in the calm summer waters that are normally home to huge waves during the winter months. Your expert captain and crew will be sure to find the best spot for snorkeling near Shark's Cove, home to a number of Hawaiian green sea turtles and colorful marine life. On the morning sail, after working up a hearty appetite, chow down on a delicious array of deli sandwiches and drinks.
Please Note! This activity only operates in the summer. Please book the North Shore Sea Turtle Swim & Sail (from Haleiwa Harbor) or North Shore Whale Watch Sailing Cruise (from Haleiwa Harbor) during the fall and winter months.
