An outrigger canoe tour from Makena in the heart of Turtle Town lends itself to many great options for snorkeling with Hawaiian green sea turtles. Surrounded by calm waters most mornings, this is the ideal tour for families with small children, first-time paddlers, and those looking for a calm ocean experience. Never more than 6 guests per tour, it’s a great option for guests looking to learn about Hawaiian Culture and snorkel in Turtle Town without the masses. With many snorkeling locations to choose from among the various reef formations in Turtle Town, our canoe guides will keep you away from the crowded snorkel boats. Across the channel you’ll see Molokini Crater, with Kahoolawe in the background, which holds strong cultural significance to the Hawaiian People and is the piko, or belly button, of the Hawaiian Islands. Enjoy views of Lanai and Haleakala while learning the meaning of their Hawaiian place names.
