Overview
Guaranteed sightings of sea turtles, plus a snorkeling tour and catamaran cruise, make this guided tour the ultimate Hawaiian experience. Choose from a morning tour or midday tour for whichever one fits your schedule best. Both options include the same stunning views and opportunities to spot wildlife such as turtles, dolphins, and whales in their natural environment.
What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your Waikiki hotel, or make your way to Kewalo Basin Harbor to board your 53-foot (16-meter) catamaran. Enjoy music, drinks, and views of Diamond Head as you make your way to the snorkeling spot, looking out for wildlife such as dolphins and whales as you go.

Upon arrival at Turtle Canyon, go through a safety briefing, and snap on your snorkel gear. Spend time swimming alongside green sea turtles and tropical fish. Your snorkel guide helps you find the best spots.

Back on board, rinse off in a freshwater shower and change into dry clothing. Enjoy a deli sandwich buffet in the covered cabin (midday tour only), or snap photos of the Ko’olau Mountains and Waikiki from the deck.

This tour concludes with hotel drop-off.

Great time

The staff was incredible and definitely made the trip a great time. Especially Bre, Dwight, and Donald. Drinks/food were yummy. There was not much coral/fish to see but there were some turtles! Also, got to see a few whales. Incredible views.

They provide snorkel equipment and flippers. Not sure if your 4 year old knows how to use snorkel equipment. May be a little too young, but you may want to ask them directly.

Sorry, I just saw you question. Yes, I would think you need to make a reservation prior to going on excursion. Not sure how many days in advance you would need to do so. I made ours a couple of weeks in advance.
