You hear our name, Turtle Bay Resort, and assume that there are turtles (honu) here. Of course you’re right! Turtle Bay Resort is one of the prime locations to see honu on the beautiful island of Oahu.
The two types of sea turtles most frequently observed at Turtle Bay Resort are the green sea turtle and Hawksbill sea turtle. The green sea turtle is listed as a threatened species under federal and state law. Hawaiian green sea turtles have shown a good population recovery in recent years, although they are still plagued with a papilloma virus that causes disfiguring tumors. Hawksbill sea turtles are sighted much less frequently than the greens.
