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!
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.
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!
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.
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.
We have never snorkeled before and this was a highlight of our trip.
A must but a lot of excerise so if u don't want to sweat and put in some exercise not easy but worth it
the equipment was awesome, u can buy almost anything at the office that u may need. PLZ get an umbrella! its worth the 10 because the sun is extremely hot and there is NO shade anywhere. Staff was pleasant and professional.
Highly recommend this excursion to Hanauma Bay. Whether your an experienced snorkler or just a beginner this is the perfect place for you. My booking with Viator was very smooth and they were on time to pick us up and return us to our hotel. I was so pleased with the service that I have now booked 5 more excursions with them. Well worth the money.
Absolutly beautiful, I would recommend this trip to anyone, even if you don't snorkel it's great to just lie on the beach.
Omg this tour was one of our first, amazinggggg! So wonderfully beautiful a must do on your trip to Oahu.
Amazing! Everything went as planned and couldn't have gone smoother. Great excursion, great package, great time!
This was an awesome day trip. Would definitely recommend but go early in the morning. My family had a great time but it got really full by 11am and then the water got cloudy and more difficult to see as clearly in the wrapper. The fish were thick in the bay and didn't seem to mind you were there. Will do this again next time we're in Oahu.
We did this tour on a rainy day, but it was amazing because it wasn't packed with people. The water was still clear and the fish were everywhere! I would do it all over again
You can rent snorkeling gears in Hanauma bay, but I chose this tour because they give you a ride to Hanauma bay from hotels in honolulu. I didnt rent a car in this trip, so this was helpful. hanauma bay is a must visit place i think. I saw so many fishes moving around, and the beach itself was so beautiful, too.
We have been lucky enough to do a lot of travel top a lot of different countries and the day we spent at Hanauma Bay was up there with the very best days we have had. Absolute stunning spot, inexpensive and great variety of tropical fish just metres off the beach. Would highly recommend it. Apparantly it gets very busy in summer1 million visitors per year so go early if going in summer as you must watch the video and they said it can take 2 to 3 hours to get in to watch the video in peak times, Also shady spots are limited so keep this in mind when planning your day.
