Had an amazing experience! 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 days ago I did the Hawaii Turtle Tours-Turtle Eco Adventure on Nov. 30th. I spent 7 days in Hawaii and this was my absolute favorite tour. Our tour guide Raoul, was not only informative, but very funny and entertaining as well. Seeing the green sea turtles at Turtle Beach was the highlight of my tour as I’m a huge animal lover and always want to see animals while on vacation. We also saw a Hawaiian monk seal sleeping on the beach which was pretty amazing too. This was about an 8 or 9 hour tour which included visiting several different places and breath taking scenery. Read More. Awesome tour 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 days ago Awesome tour. Thank you very much to raul our spanish hawaiin friend who made the trip very fun and got the whole tour to connect with each other. And to matt our driver who also was equally as good. Two top blokes on a great tour seeing the real oahu outside the “tourist spots”. Read More. A ‘Must Do’ Tour 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 days ago I went on this tour with my sister and Mum and we had a great time. What a joy it was to swim with the turtles and see the other side of the island. I cannot recall out guides name (I’m writing this a few months later) but she made the day for us! She was so full of knowledge and laughter and we all had an amazing time. I cannot recommend this tour enough and would say everyone must go! Read More. Swimming with turtles, dole plantation & singing tour guide! 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 days ago This tour was great! Book for Thanksgiving weekend for a group of 4. The weather was a bit rainy but that didn’t stop us from having a great time! Our tour guide was John Junior. He was great & we learned so much about island history and he sang to us through out the trip! All of the stops had beautiful views and the food was delicious. It was very nice to see so much of the island without having to worry about driving. We saw many turtles during the snorkeling bit and it was amazing! I would definitely recommend it to others!

Read more. AWESOME DAY!!! 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 days ago Tour was exactly if not better than advertised. Great way to see the island. Vehicle was comfortable and brand new, lunch was on a scenic river instead of the side of the road and guides did a good job of informing where relevant and also letting us explore some things (like done plantation) on our own. Beautiful scenery, comfortable environment and turtles were everywhere. Would have to bring something with you to find things to complain about. Read more. Awesome tour – great way to see Oahu 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago My husband and I had an awesome time on this tour – our guide Justin was great and we loved that we got to see different parts of Oahu off the main tourist track as well as lots of the islands key attraction spots.

Great Turtle Adventure 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 week ago Had a great time with this tour! Our tour guide Justin was awesome! Showed us some of the hidden jewels of Oahu, stopped to let us take pictures, we stopped to eat fresh fruit from the island, and of course my favorite the turtles. I was stoked from the beginning to see the turtles but once we got there it was amazing to actually snorkel with them. I have wear glasses and am near sighted so I cannot see far away but I swear every time I turned around there was another turtle. They are such beautiful majestic creatures. Read more. Great Tour 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago My family and I had a great day during this tour. Our tour guide John Jnr was amazing, funny, knowledgeable and had a great voice (he sang to us a few times with his guitar). I would vote for him as the best tour guide. Read more.

Best Experience, Forever Memories 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 days ago If you want a taste of the wonderful parts of Oahu and the long lasting memories of swimming the beautiful turtles, then you can’t go pass this tour. We booked this tour at the start of our trip to Oahu so we could have a taste of everything so we could choose our favourite parts to go back to later on during the trip. But if you are on limited time this is the best way to do it. Firstly our tour guide … Lisa!! Saying goodbye at the end of the tour was like saying goodbye to family. Read More. Highlight of our trip 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 days The turtle tour is excellent and I would recommend it to anyone. Our guide KC picked us up right on time and he is very knowledgeable and funny. After a few stops we ran into some road construction and a truck on fire shutting down the road. KC immediately found an alternate route and we were going again. The lunch was fantastic and a beautiful location. Read More.

Great Tour 5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago This is a great tour, you get the opportunity to see the beautiful coastline of Oahu, our driver and guide (Justin) know there stuff and were both very informative. The small group is also nice instead of being on a big coach. Best part is getting the chance to snorkel with the turtles. Read More.

It was a tremendous summer for us and our visitors, and we enjoyed making new friends and taking them around the island for an unforgettable trip. This is what we at Hawaii Turtle Tours are committed to doing for you: experience a once-in-a-lifetime Hawaii tour where you will see top island attractions, learn about the culture and history of Oahu and, of course, swim with Hawaiian turtles!

Great Tour!! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days Raul did an awesome job as our guide with Vinny as his right hand man! Smaller group size makes it easy to fit in what everyone wants to do without feeling rushed. Great overview of the east side and north shore. Plenty of turtles to snorkel with (without a crowd) and even one sunning on the beach. The fried bananas and the snack stop were yummy and the stop at the macadamia nut farm very cool and fun! Would definitely recommend this tour! We rented a motorcycle the next day (but would recommend a car due to possibility of rain) and visited some of the sights Raul had pointed out along the way. If you this is your first time to Hawaii start with this tour to give you the lay of the land to help plan the rest of your vacation. Read more. Fantastic day in Oahu! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago We were late getting to our pick up spot for the tour and tensions were running high…. Within seconds of meeting our guide, Justin, all our worries were gone…. He was relaxed, not fazed by our tardiness, and not fazed by our East Coast anxiety Justin took us around the island, telling us about the history and culture of the island he was born on and the culture he grew up with…. Knowledgable, informative and always friendly, we loved the trip! Read more. Fantastic day! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Last week we went out on the turtle eco tour and our guide was Duke. We had a brilliant day, Duke told us so many interesting facts about the island, the ride was very comfortable, we stopped at great road side stalls and interesting places and our lunch was excellent! Seeing the turtles sleeping on the beach was the highlight it was an amazing experience. Read more. Awesome experience 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago This is a great off the beaten path tour! These guys are great! My wife and i swam with the turtles, ate great food, and had an awesome dessert at the Dole plantation. 8 hours of pure fun! I highly recommend!! Read more. AWESOME DAY OUT! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago This was such an awesome day out – so much more than a turtle tour! Our guide Jason was incredibly personable and gave us such an informative and fun tour of the island outside of Waikiki. Me and my boyfriend were only in Ohahu for two days so it was a brilliant thing to do in order to get a whistle stop tour of the island. We stopped at some iconic places where scenes of 50 first dates and pirates of the Caribbean were filmed. We stopped at a macadamia nut farm, and a pineapple plantation. We stopped at Fumis shrimp shack for lunch — the best shrimps I have EVER had. Read more.

A great summer, great memories, a great Hawaii tour!

Great tour! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday Tour guide Raul and driver Lisa were an awesome team! Raul was fun and informative and answered all questions. The tour lets you see the other parts of the island so suggest you book early in your stay. Raul gives tips on which beaches are less crowded, where to park, etc. We stopped at a road side farm, coffee produce store, and a couple beaches. The highlight is to snorkel with sea turtles and this team made an effort to find several. Even though I did not snorkel with my family I saw several turtles up close. Lunch was at a shrimp truck and very good, lunch is not included but the price was very reasonable and the spot with picnic tables by water was enjoyable. Coming back there is a stop at Dole Plantation and during the entire drive Raul is giving us history and facts of the areas and sights we pass by. All in all the tour is worth the price, we enjoyed it all. Read more. Awesome tour, great tour guides 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago These guys embody everything that is Hawaiian – a cruisy tour with seal spotting and snorkelling with the turtles. We loved the small bus Vs big tour buses and the little things like ringing ahead to order lunch made the tour flow so smoothly. Cruisy, well organise and would definitely recommend. Quality driver and tour guides who know their stuff too. Well done guys n thanks. Read more. North Shore Hawaii Turtle Tours 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago What a great day. Pickup on time by the lovely Lisa who entertained us to the max from 7.15 in the morning until we where dropped off around 4 in the afternoon. Even the rain in the morning didn’t’ deter us from swimming and snorkelling. Shrimps for lunch finishing off with a waffle cone pineapple ice cream. Cheers Lisa you were great and thanks also to Mike our friend we found just down from the Hilton Garden Inn who arranged our trip remember Discount Oahu Tours Cheers Mike. Jillian Geoff Jack and Raelene. 8/8/16. New Zealand. Read more. Great time 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago This was a fantastic trip!!! I loved it because you got to see all the highlights of Oahu! We started with a wonderful tour of Oahu that stopped at interesting and beautiful places! We stopped at a local fruit stand that was super cool! There was every type of fruit you can think of and some really unique treats for super cheap! Our bus had tons of fun because our tour guides were outgoing and made the trip so enjoyable! Read more. Awesome trip! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago NEW via mobile Raul was, hands down, one of the most patient guides I have ever seen. He was fun, knew how to chat with everyone, and was super easygoing with everyone. For the first time I didn’t feel like I was being sold to ever. Both him and the driver made for an awesome trip. Thanks again guys! The turtles were pretty cool close up. The water was a little too shallow for my liking but I got used to it. Good times! Read more.

TripAdvisor Insider – July 2016

It has been a wonderful summer month here on the island of Oahu filled with lots of excitement and adventures with our visitors. As of today, Hawaii Turtle Tours has 611 excellent Tripadvisor reviews. We thank you all for your feedback and for sharing your experience on our TripAdvisor page. Here is our monthly TripAdvisor Insider post where we share some of our favorite feedback we have received in the last few days. A fantastic trip led by a fantastic team! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 7/24 Despite the storm like weather, this was an excellent day and fantastic value for money. Our guide Justin’s enthusiasm at all times was infectious and he did a great job throughout the day in trying circumstances. Irrespective of the weather, he was able to find out turtles for us to swim with and for the rest of the day, was an excellent tour guide as we drove around the island. Credit to Lisa as well in driving and ably assisting Justin. They worked very well together. Of all of the tours that I have tried in Hawaii, you would be hard pressed to beat this one, not just in terms of price but also the quality and comprehensive nature of the tour. A great day out! Read more. Great day! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 days ago Snorkeling with the Hawaiian sea turtles was the highlight. Our guide, Justin, did a great job finding turtles and guiding people to them. He also made the drive very entertaining. This was a full day tour and it was very well done. Lunch was fresh and delicious, and all the stops were interesting but quick (and touristy, but hey, we are tourists). Casey,our driver, did a great job getting us around and gave us some interesting history. Thanks for a great day in Oahu! Read more. Turtle tours 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago This tour was awesome! Justin and Casey are both cool guys who really know there stuff. If getting out of the congested waikiki is not enough well then swimming with sea turtles, lunch on the river, harvesting your own macadamian nuts, dole ice cream fresh off the farm or even just taking in all the beautiful views should do the trick. Only downfall is that we didn’t taake this tour at the start of our holiday because they show you so many cool things to do. 10/10 on this one guys really earned it! Read more. Great trip around 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Raoul and Vinnie were our guide and driver. Raoul has an amazing knowledge of the Hawaiian peoples and the country side and Vinnie was an excellent driver. Even though it was not the best of conditions we were still able to see some turtles snorkling. Lunch was really nice and in a great spot. Dole plantation was really busy and not enough time to really look through. I would definitely recommend this to anyone interested and to do it at the start of your trip not the end. Well worth the day out thanks heaps Raoul and Vinnie. Read more. Turtle Tours 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago I met Billy who signed me up for this fabulous tour. The pick up was convent to where I was staying. Our tour guide Justin and our super driver were on time and very personable. Justin’s expertise and local knowledge about the island and secret spots around the island. I had a great time the whole tour and loved especially swimming with the turtles. Justin took me out to where there were more and some really big turtles. Read more.

Major attractions and Turtle Tour in one day!! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago We both really enjoyed this day ,it gave a a tour round the whole island of Oahu seeing and learning about local attractions . Our Tour guide was on his very first day but was very enthusiastic and friendly. We snorkeled with turtles for round one hour the only disappointing part of this was that the waters were a little murky that day so visibility wasn’t great but the Turtle was quite happy to swim amongst us !!.I t was awesome to see them in there natural environment. Read more. Fantastic Tour…Highly recommend it. 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Found Walt, tour representative, on the street near the Moama Surfrider and booked the tour with him. He was great…so easy to organise with him. What initially attracted me to the tour was the small size group (no more than 20 on the bus). Such a personalized experience. KC and Alanis our guides were fantastic. KC has excellent knowledge of the history of the island and Hawaiian culture and gave such a great insight. Read more. Excellent tour! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago via mobile Great tour for those with limited time! The tour takes you essentially on a circle of Oahu and includes 1 hour of snorkeling with Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Our driver was Vinnie and tour guide Jake who were both excellent. Jake was fantastic and very enthusiastic about…well everything! Lunch was a bit hit and miss with calling ahead to order not really manifesting and everyone having to wait around. The food itself was ok. Read more. Hands down the best day we had in Hawaii!!! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Raul and Vinnie were energetic, knowledgeable, entertaining, honest and personable. More importantly they were respectful of the island, its history, its inhabitants (land and aquatic) and us – their guests. I cannot say enough about these two. Going into this vacation, all of my knowledge about Hawaii came from Elvis movies. While we learned substantially more, we certainly had the Elvis experience when Raul borrowed a ukulele and serenaded us!! Read more.

TripAdvisor Insider – May 2016 Summer is almost here and our ohana (family) welcomes all of you to join our top rated Hawaii Turtle Tour. As always we strive to provide the best tour on Oahu and be the best part of your vacation. As of today we have 543 excellent TripAdvisor reviews and here are some of our April favorites. Mahalu nui loa for your kind words and being part of our ohana! Amazing! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago Best tour guide ever! Ian was the greatest and welcomed all questions. He gave us great tips for the rest of our trip and made the day extremely entertaining. Our driver Milo was was full of local information and had a good sense of humor. I can’t say enough about how much i would recommend this company. If you want the best day with amazing people for great price go with them !!!!!!! A+++++++ Read more. Mark and Casey, Tour Guide Extraordinaires! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Walking down Kalakaua with an 8 year old and a desire to be as touristy as possible we weren’t exactly a hard sale. All we wanted was to swim with turtles. What I couldn’t have imagined was how entertaining this tour would be thanks to our guide Mark and driver Casey. The day began at 7:46am. We were the first pick up with another family that had gotten mixed up on time. It was endearing to watch Mark plan around the mistake instead of saying too bad so sad. Not a bad first impression and a scene no one else on our tour saw. Read more. Turtle tour 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago This tour is a must! Being the first time in Hawaii we didn’t know what to expect but we’re excited to find out! We booked a private tour and were blessed with a great tour guide named Raul that made the experience even more worth the while! Great personality, lots of enthusiasm and energy, stacks of knowledge and super genuine! He took us to so many places around the island, explained everything and anything and got involved when we went snorkelling. Read more. Enthralling island tour 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago We booked this trip via our hotel rep with North Shore Hawaii Turtle Tours and we’re lucky enough to have Mark as our very entertaining and knowledgable guide and Robert as our excellent driver. The minibus was smart and comfortable, although there was mention of it being downgraded if the group was too small. The trip takes you around all the beauty spots along the North Shore with frequent stops to stretch legs and take in the scenery. Read more. Good weather for turtles… 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago It pissed down. All day. Like, proper monsoon style (perhaps slight exaggeration). That said, we had the best time. We managed to get in a stop at the most beautiful beach before the heavens opened, and our guide Raul put in so much effort and enthusiasm to make sure we enjoyed ourselves despite the crappy weather. All the stops were great, including lunch at the shrimp trucks which other advisors have slammed. $15 for fresh seafood? In Australia we call that a bargain. Huddling under an awning stuffing our faces with delicious “shrimps” (prawns, people, they’re prawns) while rain hammered down around us was a nice bonding moment. While we ate, Raul made ponchos out of garbage bags (I promised I wouldn’t mention it, but it was so funny/thoughtful) so we could get out of the car without getting drenched. Read more.

TripAdvisor Insider – April 2016

March was absolutely a great month and we at Hawaii Turtle Tours had an amazing time with our visitors. Thank you Brittany, Andrew, Tara, Dona, Lee and everyone else for joining our Oahu tour and sharing your experience about it on our TripAdvisor page. As of today, Hawaii Turtle Tours has 525 excellent ratings and this number continues to grow by the day because we are and will always be committed to be the best part of your Hawaii vacation. Here are a few reviews we received in March and early April from our guests. Exceptional tour! Fun day, amazing tour guide 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago Had an absolute blast on this tour. Mark was our tour guide who knew his stuff and gave you an insane amount of information without turning the tour into a lecture theatre. Honestly he made the day fun from the moment he picked us up. Absolute champion of a guy who didn’t mind if we got off topic and ended up chatting about many unrelated topics instead of the mundane history of pineapple fields. Let’s be honest, we were doing him a favour really by sharing and discussing our favourite conspiracy theories! We didn’t get to see any turtles today while snorkelling but so many other highlights and beautiful sea life and nice coral. As a first time snorkeller, I am now in love and can’t wait for more!!! Read more. Private tour with teenagers 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago Came to Honolulu with my high school coed cheer squad. Found turtle tours on tripadvisor so gave it a shot since we had limited time to visit island. KC our driver and Ryan our guide were wonderful and very accommodating. They stopped by Leonard’s bakery for us to pick up boxes of fresh malsades to start the trip, I had requested a waterfall hike, and went for a glorious swim at one in waimea national park. Read more. Fantastic Tour of O’ahu 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago We were approached by Jason in Waikiki, we were initially sceptical but so glad we signed up to the circle tour. Our driver was Ron and tour guide Mark (fantastic moustache!), they have incredible knowledge of the Island and took us to the must see sights around O’ahu. We never felt rushed and Mark was still providing information right up until we were dropped back at our hotel. Read more. Awesome tour with amazing tour guides. Raul and Casey. 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 days ago We had a fun filled day full of adventures and laughter with Raul and Casey. They were easy going, funny, informative and patient. They provided amazing customer service throughout the entire day and made the tour very enjoyable. There wasn’t one boring or dull moment at all. We visited all the most popular sites around the island with a moment of cliff jumping and snorkling. We learned a lot about the island, history and culture which was pretty neat. Read more. Such an enjoyable tour for people of all ages 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Raul and the King were great! Raul told us about the history of so many buildings, parks, mountain ranges, villages, islands etc. From the moment we got into the bus to the moment we were dropped back off at the hotel we were learning and laughing! The comradery between Raul and King was great. Raul made sure every single one of us saw a turtle and found them in the water with us. Read more.

Best Day ! 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago This tour is an ABSOLUTE MUST DO! We were approached on the street by Walt, and after chatting a bit, we decided to do this day long tour. Best decision we could have made! We saw beautiful beaches! Beautiful views! We saw whales, and seals, and we got to snorkel with the turtles! The macadamia nut farm was so great, and delicious, as was the Dole Plantation! Mike was the driver, and Daniel the tour guide. Read full review. Best Tour EVER – must do it 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago We definitely saw and swam with sea turtles. Thanks to Raul, he tailored our tour to what we wanted to see and was not only informative, but kept my grandson of 6 years old entertained. We were able to see and enjoy all of the beaches. Then ended the day seeing 2 sea turtles on the beach and then to top it off – Raul located 2 in the ocean so we were able to view them while snorkeling – Best day of our vacation in Hawaii. Read full review. Skeptical, but VERY PLEASED. 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago I was approached by a man named Jason on the sidewalk who just did not want to let me walk away without booking. With nothing else planned to do, I reluctantly agreed and paid the deposit. BEST MOVE I MADE THE ENTIRE TRIP. Daniel was our tour guide and was very funny, polite and informative. Someone who if I became a local I could see myself befriending. The driver, King mike, completed the duo with his jokes and sense of humor. We saw turtles at every stop, including a beached one! Read full review. An excellent tour to explore Oahu 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago Normally we don’t like to be approached by agents on the streets selling their services. But agent Arthur Witherpersoon did immediately convinced us that we couldn’t miss the North Shore turtle tour. His sincere enthusiasm and the way he talked about the tour made us excited. We must say that everything he told us was true. In only one day we did see many destinations we never could manage in a whole week. But the nicest part of the tour were our tour guides Josh and driver Chief Milo. Both are so knowledgeable and funny that the tour was not only educative but also entertaining. Read full review. North Shore Oahu Circle Island Tour 5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 weeks ago Had an awesome time on this tour. Our bus driver King Mike and guide Daniel were awesome. They took extra care of our mother on the tour. She is 89 and she fell in love with them because they took such care of her. Both were very friendly and we felt like they were family. I would highly recommend them especially if you have handicapped loved ones. Such a wonderful day. Read full review.
