Join us on this exciting small group snorkel adventure with an open itinerary to provide your experience with the best snorkel options available based on ocean conditions of the day. Destinations could include Shark Fin or Lighthouse over off the island of Lanai, Honolua Bay, Carthaginian, Mala or Coral Gardens. See a plethora of beautiful reef fish and coral with possible sightings (not unlikely) of wild dolphins, green sea turtles, octopus, and who knows what else. Life is an adventure and this experience is no different!

With only 34 maximum passengers aboard, this small group experience offers a more intimate experience, and the smaller vessel can go where many of the bigger vessels can’t. Your experience also includes a continental breakfast, delicious BBQ lunch, refreshments of unlimited filtered water and soda, plus one complimentary alcoholic drink after snorkeling (beer and wine only).

This experience is not recommended for pregnant women and those with back issues, and no children under the age of 7 is permitted.

Pacific Whale Foundation advocates for the use of protective clothing and reef-safe sunscreen to help protect fragile coral reefs and to promote a healthy ocean environment. We support the statewide ban on sunscreens containing oxybenzone and octinoxate and, beginning November 2019, we are moving from encouragement to enforcement and instituting our own ban onboard PWF vessels of sunscreens containing: oxybenzone, octinoxate, avobenzone, avobenzine, homosalate, octisalate, octocrylene, and ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate in order to alleviate any additional stress on coral reefs. When buying sunscreen, it is important to read the ingredient list, as the term “reef safe” is not regulated and can be used as a marketing device. Choose sunscreen that is non-nano zinc oxide based, like those found in our Ocean Store. Mahalo for helping us protect the ocean.
