A wonderful experience. There is a snack bar at the top so it is worth bringing a little money with you, but you have to leave it unattended on the beach as you snorkel. The weather conditions were not perfect on the day we visited, but it was still a great experience.
This is a fantastic independent tour. They pick you up from the hotel and drop you to a little place to pick up the snorkelling gear and then drive you to Hunauma Bay. It was great!
The stuffs are very nice and quick response to e-mail. Pick up is on time and have private car by family/group to go down to the bay and back to the rental shop. Have fun there.
Well organised tour. It was great how once there the rest of the day was yours to do whatever you wanted. Would not hesitate to recommend this tour. Hanauma Bay was stunningly beautiful and a definite must do
The pick up was on time at hotel...tour guide was informative on the way...snorkeling was great...return pick up was on time...overall..a great experience!
great tour , jorge was funny , patient and informative ... would most definitely recommend
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.
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
Overall excellent. Transport on time, equipment supplied as promised, great location. Highly recommended.
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.
