Spot schools of bright fish and other marine life on a half-day snorkeling adventure at Oahu’s Hanauma Bay. All snorkel gear is provided with your rental, along with the choice of three morning departure times and hotel pickup and drop-off. Bring little ones to the inner reef to safely explore the colorful underwater world. For more advanced Hanauma Bay snorkeling, head to the outer reef.
What to Expect
Your Honolulu snorkeling adventure will begin with pickup at your hotel. All of your gear will be provided, including a high-quality silicon dive mask, snorkel and fins before you head to the water.

Hanauma Bay is a natural crescent beach in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano, and is protected by the volcanic formation. Its crystal clear waters are the perfect place to see diverse marine life. You will be asked to watch a video regarding the area’s historical and geological background before slipping into the water, in an effort to continue the preservation of the bay.

Then, snap on your gear and enjoy an underwater excursion through one of Hawaii’s most stunning natural attractions. You will be driven back to your hotel at the end of your snorkeling experience. Please note that the $7.50 USD per person entrance fee into Hanauma Bay is not included in your ticket price.

Great day on the Bay

We had a wonderful time at the Bay. Well maintained and more concerned then anywhere else about conservation and preservation. Warning: no food sold on the beach and it’s a long walk to the snack bar.

Worst tourist experience

2.5 hours to get in the water from hotel, due to multiple pickups, gear rental, lineups and silly safety videos - then only 30 mins in the water, then another hour and a half to get back. Murky water, not much marine life or coral,...More
