The water was clear. Saw many different colorful fish. I suggest you bring an underwater camer with a mini tripod to capture these amazing creatures on film.

I love Hanauma Bay! It is amazing to swim with all the fish. We did not rent a car so we had them pick us up and it included snorkeling equipment. We also loved our driver. You still have to pay the entrance fee but you get dropped off and you don't have to worry about the lot being full.

The snorkeling here is fabulous! Saw so many different fish -- even an eel. The bay is beautiful. Need to go early in the morning as this gets crowded as the day goes on.

LOVED snorkeling here, so many different types of fish, my GF and I actually came back for a second round we had such a good time. The water is so clear, and we even saw a sea turtle, we spent hours exploring ithe little coves carved out by the coral. It does get a little crowded, so I would recommend going as early as possible.

Enjoyed it very much - was glad we chose to go first thing in the morning, as the place was packed by noon.

The tour takes longer than expected--we left at 10 and returned at nearly four. This is due to transfers where you stop, try on and borrow snorkel equipment, and are then shuttled up to Hanauma Bay. You have to change vehicles on the way back as well. HOWEVER, the Bay parking lot often fills up by 9 or even earlier, so taking this tour is a good idea. Expect a line for tickets. Once you walk or shuttle from the visitor's center to the beach you have all the beauty of Hanauma Bay before you. It is crowded. To see the most fish, and if you have the skills, swim out toward the buoys and breakers. You're still in fairly calm water and the selection of tropical fish is good. Due to the cross there aren't that many fish near shore. The snorkeling also looked good on either end of the bay, which is less crowded than the center. Although some tours will get you there really early, the best snorkeling is always when the sun is high in the sky--midday. It's a beautiful spot--just expect the crowds and plan ahead. We would take this tour again.
