We really enjoyed our turtle town snorkel tour. Our guide, Shelby, was very informative and did her best to ensure everyone was able to see and learn about all the wildlife we encountered. Would definitely recommend this experience, as it was very enjoyable and gave you an up-close look at the turtles and their surrounding habitat.

Amazing experience and wonderful company
Kat_C, Sept 2023
This company was prompt and kind in their communication with me, especially with updating regarding the recent wild fires. We had Joe as a guide and he was awesome, knew exactly what he was doing and was so encouraging! Highly recommend this small company, they're passionate in what they do!!
WOW Experience
Mary_E, Sept 2023
What an amazing experience. Maybe the best tour I’ve ever taken. Rachel, our tour guide was full of information, so professional, and a great leader to help make me comfortable in the snorkeling experience. Cannot say enough to express how wonderful this really was. Highly, highly recommend.
Trey_S, Sept 2023
My wife and I had a blast snorkeling! We were able to snorkel next to turtles and see schools of fish. Overall, a great experience and awesome tour from Rachel.
Great experience
Jonathan_V, Sept 2023
The instructor Joe was great. He did a great job getting everyone involved and helping others that we're not as experienced. I would go again and highly recommend this experience to anyone.
Do it, you’ll love it
Richard_W, Sept 2023
We have snorkeled all over the world, and this experience was by far the best we’ve had. Joe is an awesome guide, you can tell he knows what he’s doing. It made the trip comforting that he was respectful to the sea life. My wife had a bad experience years ago in Maldives and is now talking about learning to dive. Can’t say enough good things about this experience. We highly recommend Joe and Zephyr Adventures.
Awesome experience!
Ailin_V, Sept 2023
Our tour guy was great! He found an octopus for us to see. He made me feel safe the whole time. Eased my anxiety about going into the ocean!
Awesome time in the water!
Stefanie_K, Aug 2023
This was my first time snorkeling and it did not disappoint. Our guide Joe did a fantastic job pointing things out, getting everyone in footage, and making sure we seen everything we could, including an octopus! He did a great job making sure we were all following along and nobody was too far out away from the group, I seen him periodically looking back to see which made me feel safe as a first timer. Thanks Joe, it was a great birthday trip!
Beautiful tour
joanne_d, Aug 2023
Our tour guide Joe, was very nice. We got to see quite a few turtles, various fish, and even a octopus. The use of the jet machines (not sure of actual name) were a great addition.
Almost kissed by a sea turtle
Rebecca_M, Aug 2023
I had the fortune of a sea turtle coming within inches of giving me a turtle kiss. That will be an experience I won't ever forget.
Awesome experience with great memories captured in photos.
Marilyn_T, Aug 2023
Rachel with Zephyr Adventures was an awesome tour guide with a constant focus on safety, providing thorough instructions. She was especially attentive to group members with limited snorkeling experience. The small group experience off the beach was so much better than the big boat trip to Molokini.
Raymond_G, Aug 2023
Due to the fires we were not able to participate in Turtle Town Snorkeling. I need a refund. I need a refund.
Response from Host, Aug 2023
Given the tragedy of the wildfires on island we have cancelled all tours for the week. We sent out messages explaining this along with the information that everyone will be refunded in full, and to be patient during this difficult time as our small team of 5 deal with personal problems. Some of our team lost their homes; please be patient during this time and the refund will be sent out within 24-48 hours. Mahalo for your understanding during this difficult time.
So much FUN
Kelly_F, Aug 2023
Great experience for the whole family! We got to swim with the sea turtles and Robbie our guide took lots of photos for us to remember our snorkeling experience. I would definitely recommend for everyone!

Such an awesome experience. We saw multiple turtles and Joe also found an octopus, which is a specialty of his. He took great photos and videos of us with the turtles and octopus as well as us holding starfish and sea urchins. Highly recommend.
Swim with turtles

Worth every penny
Sharniece_A, Aug 2023
Our guide Joe was AMAZING! He was full of so much knowledge. In the beginning of the Tour before we hit the ocean he ran everything down and explained it so well I didn’t have any questions. Everyone should definitely work this into their visit. I took my two kids (12,10) and they had so much fun. They did the swim to The turtles with just life jackets with no additional help. Definitely worth the price for everything you get. Joe took all the pics and videos and even offered some posing tips.
Awesome experience!
Chris_N, Aug 2023
Totally worth it! Our guide, Shelby, was awesome. Very knowledgeable and fun!! Made sure no one fell behind. She also took fantastic pictures for us!
Great time
David_C, Aug 2023
First snorkle experience was great. Joe, the guide, was able to provide information before and during to make everyone feel completely confident and comfortable. Definitely recommend!
Wonderful experience
