What You Can Expect

Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventure Half-Day Tour

You can see a variety of different tropical fish at Hanauma Bay

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.

This was our second time in 12 years visiting Hanauma Bay. Our first time taking advantage of Viator. We loved it and enjoyed every minute.

This was a great tour. The tour company was very efficient and organized, and Hanauma Bay is the perfect place to go snorkeling for the first time. Apparently a lot of snorkeling tours take you out on a boat and you are in very deep water. At Hanauma Bay, you wade out into the water and are in waist-deep water at most. Even those in our group who didn't want to snorkel were able to have a good time.

Great experience. This tour is a must if you go on the Oahu island. The equipment provided was clean and good enough so you do not need to upgrade. We saw a lots of colorful fish and you do not have to go far in the bay. The transportation from our hotel to the bay was perfect.
My wife and I were holding hands while snorkeling so we saw the same things at the same time, that was great. Recommended to the whole family.

Very easy organized way to get from hotel to most popular snorkeling site and back. Price included transportation and snorkel gear and mat for beach. Avoid the traffic and parking issues, 3 different pick up times to choose departure from the park.
