Turtle Bay Resort is home to 100 acres of marsh surrounding the Arnold Palmer golf course and is a designated Supporting Habitat for various species of endangered Waterbirds:
Hawaiian Stilt, Hawaiian Coot, Hawaiian Moorhen, Hawaiian Duck, and now the Albatross.
These endangered birds are highly susceptible to human and predator disturbance so please admire them from a distance.

There’s a massive wave sculpture at Turtle Bay Resort. The work of art is entitled, "Plastic Free Pipeline" and is made out of recycled materials and trash found on the North Shore of Oahu. The wave is big enough for you to stand in it and get barrelled. It’s part of the plastic free movement and was constructed by artist Ethan Estess.
We talked story with Ethan about his exhibit that is turning heads and inspiring others to limit their plastic footprint.
