Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventure Half-Day Tour

Hanauma Bay Oahu Nature Preserve is a natural crescent beach in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano. The bay is protected by the volcanic formation and the waters are famously clear, providing the ideal environment to spot fish and other marine wildlife.

The City and County of Honolulu's Marine Educational Center at Hanauma Bay Hawaii features marine displays of wildlife in the bay, an educational video theater and other facilities. It's mandatory that you watch the video in order to be informed about the bay's geological and historical background before taking Hanauma Bay tours, and the importance of protecting Hanauma Bay for future visitors.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

Beautiful location. Water was a bit choppy that day, but there were so many fish in the bay. Take a picnic basket though and make a full day of it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

They don't necessarily show you how to snorkel, but their equipment and shuttle service to Hanauma Bay were superb. They 're located about 5 mins away from the bay and it beats having to find parking at or near the bay on a busy day. Plus their prices are comparable to the rental shops at and around the bay.

It was great !

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Best snorkeling ever! The fishes are not afraid at all and swim right in front of you. I also took the opportunity to go across the road to climb Koko Head Crater. After a hot and steamy climb, a plunge into the water was fantastic!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Good quality snorkelling equipment. Staff were well-organised and friendly, and provided clear instructions. We were a bit unlucky with the water conditions, but that's how it goes sometimes.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Incredible company. The snorkelling equipment was in great condition. Easy access to the beach with a trolley to take you down and up if needed. Enough time allocated to be on the beach. Can see fish even in shallow water. Bring lots of sunscreen as there isn't a lot of shade on the beach. Highly recommend.
