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.

very enjoyable, we would do it again. the way it's setup makes everything easy and smooth. There are so many fish to see, the time goes by fast.

This was a great experience, we were picked up on time and obtaining the snorkeling equipment was efficient from the people at HOP.
The experience and the scenery was beautiful.
A must do for people who love the ocean...

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

We have never snorkeled before and this was a highlight of our trip.
