Three Places to Spot Sea Turtles at Turtle Bay

Turtle at Turtle Bay

Turtle Bay is often visited by several different marine mammals and endangered species. Reading our name, you’d assume Turtle Bay is home to several sea turtles and it is. It’s most common for snorkelers and divers to see the honu (green sea turtle) in nearshore waters. The honu are often spotted basking on shore or swimming and feeding in the water.

Please Be Respectful
When you do encounter one of these beautiful and peaceful creatures, be respectful. They are protected under federal law. Do not harass or touch them. Keep at least 15 feet away from them and don’t block their access either to or from the ocean. When you do spot one on shore, avoid making loud noises and do not use flash photography.

Here are three places you can spot sea turtles at Turtle Bay, all locations are located a mile or less from your hotel room.

Turtle Bay Welcomes New Horse

Turtle Bay Stables Red Barn

There's a new horse in town and Turtle Bay Resort's employees are pretty giddy about it.

"We are so excited because he is going to be an excellent addition," said Turtle Bay Stables Director Alicia McCumbers.

His name is Boogie, and he's an 11-year-old Quarter Horse Paint Gelding. Boogie was born at Kapualei Ranch on Molokai. He came to the island of Oahu several years ago to train as a rodeo horse in Kahaluu with a young boy.

"He did rodeo but he’s so mellow his previous owner, now 11-years-old seemed to grow out of him. He needed a more rambunctious horse," said McCumbers.

As soon as Boogie saw his new home at Turtle Bay Resort's stables, it was obvious he was pretty giddy to be here too.
