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.
Overall excellent. Transport on time, equipment supplied as promised, great location. Highly recommended.
Awesome Awesome Awesome! Beautiful waters, family atmosphere! Very good price! An amazing view of Gods creation!!
the local company were so nice and accommodating
must get there early as last pick up is 2.45pm
we had only 1 hour as we were not aware of this but locals made up for this by being so helpful
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.
So cool! Great experience and saw so many fish and water creatures! The snorkeling gear was good, and the transportation was great!
Had a great time, this was the highlight of our trip, would definitely go back!
Great tour. Picked up on time and back to hotel as well. Tour was perfect. Snorkeling and a choice of pick up time when done. Polite and safe drivers. Paul and Elaine S
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.
