Snorkeling with sea turtles in Oahu tour recommendations?

We are going to Oahu in February and want to snorkel with sea turtles. We are considering Wild Side specialty tours. Does anyone know anything about them? Are the recommended? Are there other turtle snorkeling tours that you recommend? Is a tour even necessary to snorkel with the turtles.

Thanks in advance for your help!

never needed to take a tour of snorkeling with sea turtles since they are abundant throughout the islands..Hanama bay on the second and third tier and pockets north of Sea Life park and sunset beach too.
If you are not a strong swimmer or never swam in the ocean, then I would highly suggest a tour.

We saw them in lots of places, just snorkeling.

Please know to not touch them and keep your distance from them.

We really enjoyed Wild Side Specialty tours, and plan to do the tour again this May. Not only do they take you to a great turtle cleaning hang-out, but they also (if conditions permit) let you swim with wild dolphins. I would agree with others though, you really don't need to do a tour to see turtles. They are abundant and I usually find at least one every at every shore. If you want a 100% chance then do a tour.
