Saw sea turtles...awesome The 7:00 wildlife tour was canceled, but we did see quite a bit Go in the morning while the sea is calm

This was great! We went on the morning cruise at 8:15am. I highly reccommend it. We saw lots of fish. They do toss a little food into the water to attract the fish. So that was fun to watch them eat. We also had a pod of dolphins swim with the boat for about ten minutes. They love to swim in the wake of the boat. We also saw sea turtles. My point is you will see wildlife. The captain was friendly and the mate was informative and humorous. I liked the authentic Hawaiian music they played as we motored out. They were both very chill and let you enjoy the scenery. The boat was clean and well maintained. There is also plenty of seating and there is a head on board (restroom). The marina and kiosk is easy to find and there is parking right in front but of course it was early. It is about $1.00 an hour. Be aware - don't park on the side where there are no meters. It looks like free parking but it is for registered vehicles only. Be aware there are viewing compartments where you look down into the ocean. There are not huge sections of the bottom of the boat which are glass. I know these exist elsewhere on other islands and in other parts of the world. But the water is very clear and you can see all the way to the bottom and you do see wildlife. And there are several of these compartments and many prople can stand around each one. My eight year old had a good time and my wife loved it. And even though the seas were a little choppy the ride was somewhat smooth. This is due to the design of the boat. Great trip and good viewing! Please tip! We went on many tours and noticed how many people did not tip. Covid hit the islands hard so adding a little extra back into the economy helps. We highly reccommend this tour!

Fun early morning cruise from the marina towards Diamond Head. Boat captain gave us a little history about Honolulu, some recommendations and pointed out a couple of turtles along the way.
