Turtle Canyon

Turtle Canyon reef is one of the most popular dive sites on the island of Oahu due to the sheer number of sea turtles here. This reef is a turtle cleaning station and is fairly shallow, making it also a great snorkel site.

It’s all about the turtles here: green and hawksbill sea turtles come here to get cleaned by small wrasses at designated “cleaning stations.“
