The #1 snorkeling beach in North Shore Oahu, Turtle Cove. Also, #1 or #2 snorkeling site on the entire island of Oahu.
There is a very, very good chance you will see the “HONU” or Hawaiian green sea turtle. Turtle Cove is home to hundreds of tropical fish and sea life.
We can take you to “Turtle cleaning station” which is 6 feet from the surface. Hawaii green sea turtles are floating in water about 6 feet deep from the surface. Small fish come to turtle’s shell, picking algae from it. A great day is when there is more than three turtles around the turtle cleaning station.
Sea turtles are a “lung breath” animal so they sometimes come up for air to the surface next to you. This actually happens very often. It is an amazing close encounter with beautiful marine life. Please remember if this happens to you, be still. Stay away from the sea turtles, needless to say, DON’T TOUCH or chase them. They need to spend time on the surface for breathing. Hawaiian green sea turtles or any other sea turtles you see in Hawaii are very protected. There is a very big fine if you touch them!! Their beaks are also very strong. You do not want the to bite your fingers, trust us when we say this.
