Get ready “fur” a real treat! There’s a paw-some new member of the Turtle Bay Ohana. Meet Pono, Turtle Bay Resort's official canine ambassador!
“Being on 850 acres on the North Shore allows Turtle Bay Resort to develop unique programs that enhance the guest experience,” said Jerry Gibson, Turtle Bay Resort's Vice President. “Adopting a fur friend from Hawaii Fi-Do was a natural fit to our pet-friendly resort, adding a fun way to explore our five miles of unspoiled ocean coastline, 15 miles of hiking trails, and private horse and pony stables.”
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 where to see sea turtles in Turtle Bay, Hawaii, all locations are located a mile or less from your hotel room.
