Pure Aloha Adventures

by | Mar 9, 2018 | Hanauma Bay Guided Snorkel, Oahu, Oahu Tour Operator

At Pure Aloha Adventures, we pride ourselves in keeping tour groups small to provide you with a more intimate and personal experience. We take you off the beaten path to show the Hawaii we know and love. We want you to leave feeling like you are part of our ohana, not just a guest on a tour.

Though guided snorkeling tours of the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve are our main attraction, we offer a little of everything Hawaii has to offer, from stand-up paddle boarding to snorkeling, scuba diving, scenic overlooks, and day tours that take you to hidden beaches.

Hanauma Bay Guided Snorkel

Don’t bother with long lines or full parking lots on our Hanauma Bay adventure tours! Come join our guided shore snorkel of the famous Hanauma Bay! High-quality snorkel gear will be provided and our certified snorkel and dive instructors promise to show you the best parts of the bay! We will start off with a proper lesson in shallow waters for those who need it then take you out to the best parts of the bay while searching for turtles and endemic Hawaiian reef fish.

Hanauma Bay is a unique, horseshoe-shaped bay and it is one of the most popular tourist sites on Oahu, Honolulu, Hawaii. The reef is home to over 400 species of marine life. The bay is also known for being home to many green sea turtles. We know where the secret turtle spots are and will not only point out and identify Hawaiian reef fish, but will also take underwater photos so you can document your experience.

Because Hanauma Bay is a marine preserve, we are one of few companies which have an actual permit to enter the park and guide tours. Boats are also not allowed in Hanauma Bay so the only way to experience this majestic ecological treasure is from the shore.

Honolulu Sail and Snorkel with Turtles

If there’s one activity you do while you are in Hawaii, this Honolulu snorkel tour is it! Just outside the hustle and bustle of Waikiki, Honolulu, lies a place turtles call home. We simply call it turtle canyon. Here we see these gentle marine creatures in all their glory. Snorkel and watch the live turtle “car wash.” With daily turtle sightings, Hawaii snorkeling tours are sure to delight visitors of all ages. You can even see the turtles from the boat if you don’t want to snorkel.

When you choose our Hawaii snorkeling tours, you’ll take in the marine life that Waikiki has to offer. You’ll enjoy a beautiful boat ride out to the reef, where you’ll be outfitted in snorkel gear and have an opportunity to go snorkeling among the fish.

During this Honolulu snorkel tour, you’ll also have an opportunity to see coral up close. Coral reefs are ecologically-sensitive ecosystems that provide a home to about 25% of the planet’s marine species. While coral might initially appear to just be colorful-looking sea stones, they are in fact, sea creatures themselves. Many coral are actually colonies of polyps that secrete calcium. Coral are sensitive to water temperature, so, as ocean temperatures rise coral are increasingly threatened.
