Cruise Ship Passengers
Ocean Joy Snorkeling midday and sunset snorkel tours may be available for you while you are in port in Honolulu for the day. Dolphin Excursions is available, and they will pick you up at the dock. Cruise ship passengers can do the Waikiki Turtle Snorkel Sails, and the Kewalo Basin Harbor is a short 10 minute cab ride away.
Ocean Joy Cruises and Dolphin Excursions have totally different styles. Ocean Joy is Oahu’s premier snorkel tour on the vessel which is state of the art and beautifully maintained. You will enjoy a guided snorkeling with plenty tropical fish and sea turtles and watch stunning dolphin show on board. It is a relaxing and fun experience. Dolphin Excursions is an adventure you have waited for. Their goal is to swim with wild dolphins, and the boat is fast. After swimming with dolphins possibly multiple times, they stop at a nice snorkel spot to end the tour. This is an extremely popular tour, and they often sell out weeks in advance.
