We saw turtles playing near the corals! It was a very amazing sight to see! Next time we get back to Hawaii I’d do this same tour again!

This tour would not only make you see turtles but a lot of colorful fishes and other sea animals! I’m glad I took my kids in this tour! It was educational and fun!

I highly recommend this tour! We saw turtles floating and breathing for air the moment we stopped at the Turtle Canyon! Then at the bottom, we saw turtles and a lot of reef fishes cleaning their shells! Super cool stuff to witness!
