I have not been to oahu for a number of years, and always remembered Hanauma Bay fondly, but I was Very UNHAPPY this time, not with the tour, but with the area itself. Way too crowded and most of the fellow snorkelers did not know what they were doing or how to snorkel (which is very simple by the way) You are required to stand in line forever to get a ticket and then stand in another line and watch a movie (which has a good premise) however, either these people did not understand english or didn't care about the health of the reef system, it was very hard to snorkel, because people were rudely crashing into you, not watching where other people were and standing on and kicking the coral, something has to be done about this or Hanauma Bay will be ruined forever. I would not go there again, to upsetting!!! Not the enjoyable day of my memories
Have done this tour before, however my travel companion had not. Our guide was wonderful and very informative, and this is a must see for all Americans, very emotional. It is a long day, but the time did seem to fly, and a lot of info was taken in by all
