Have you always wanted to see a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle swimming freely in the ocean? Or watch schools of tropical fish work together in perfect harmony? Lets immerse ourselves in the famous underwater world of Hawaii as we learn about the unique environment and sea life we encounter.

We will meet at a local favorite snorkel spot where I will map out our dive, go over ocean safety, equipment and answer any questions you might have. We'll spend the majority of our time in the ocean finding treasures of all sorts. Although wild animals are on no strict schedule, I can guarantee we will encounter sea-creatures of all shapes and sizes.

Afterwards we will relax with local refreshments as we learn about the wildlife that we saw during our time in the ocean.

My goal is to let nature inspire through immersion and education so that together, we can create a world where we all live to protect our environment.

I am a Native Hawaiian born and raised on the island of O'ahu. As the host of hit local television series, "Under the Sea with Key" (on OC16 channel 12), I have been fortunate enough to pursue my love of nature while sharing my passion with others through photography, cinematography and shared research.

I am P.A.D.I. certified as a rescue diver and F.I.I. certified as a free diver. My lifetime spent in the ocean has made me an expert in my craft, but my passion for sharing an educational experience with people is what continues to make me successful.

*I also host a Tropical Rainforest Hike for those of you who prefer a more laid back adventure: https://www.airbnb.com/experiences/179279

Kiana did an amazing job at helping us learn how to snorkel, as well as, giving us a special insight on some of the species of fish and creatures. We seen 7 sea turtles at one time and it was a beautiful experience! Definitely something everyone should do! If you are nervous, don’t be! We will never forget this day!
