Ocean Activities

With five miles of beautiful coastline to explore, it’s no surprise that at Turtle Bay, we have many ways to discover it. Gliding along the protected waters of Kalewa Bay or diving deep below it, these Hawaii ocean water activities connect you to the motion and rhythm of our extraordinary North Shore. In ancient times, this area was reserved for the Ali'i, or hawaiian royalty. Today it’s a place of fresh perspective, rich in marine life. Spot sea turtles or have a chance encounter with a Hawaiian Monk Seal or baby Hammerhead Shark.
