“By far my favorite part of Oahu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

This is the beach you've always dreamed of. Super beautiful and you can snorkel in about 6ft of water all throughout the whole preserve. Beautiful schools of fish and turtles. I found a deal online for $12.50 which is the cab to the preserve and snorkel gear. They pick you up at your Waikiki hotel. This is probably the best value I have ever gotten.. Well worth it and HIGHLY recomended.

“Good to experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2012

Lovely snorkeling adventure but it is very crowded. Buses take loads of people there every hour and it's not very relaxing being on the bus timetable. Best to drive yourself and bring a picnic lunch to truly enjoy the day in the park. If using the bus provided snorkeling equipment makes you squeamish then bring your own. Something to see if you want to see more of the sealife than you would in Waikiki.

A must see if you like to snorkel. Washrooms can improve, no soap.

“Magical snorkeling!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2012

When you arrive you have to watch a short movie about preserving the bay. Then it's quite a walk down... But SO worth it! We could stand in the shallow water and watch tropical fish swim around us! Snorkeling was incredible! The variety and amount of fish was amazing. We loved our day here and would dearly love to go back.
