Hanauma Bay was great!!! When we were picking up our equipment at HOP it was a bit disorganised . It was easy to book and confirm.

If you're booking a tour, note that the departure times are approximately when you're leaving the hotel and not when you actually get to Hanauma Bay. We got picked up at a hotel a block and a half down at 7:55AM. Not sure why we couldn't get picked up at our hotel, but we didn't mind walking over. We chose the 8am departure and got picked up promptly and on-time. We then had to go to 4 other stops. It sucked because the first two guests were on-time, but at the third stop, the guests were 20 minutes late. I'm not sure if it was because they were told the wrong time, but we had to circle the block several times before they came out. We got dropped off at the office and got our snorkel equipment. It's nice to be able to get the tour company's equipment instead of at Hanauma Bay. We had a choice of 3 times to get picked up at, which was nice.
The bay itself is alright. They tell you not to step on the reef but it's so hard not to. We came out with a couple scrapes from the shallow parts of the bay.
Bring sunscreen, towels and an underwater camera.

Good, efficient tour. The equipment was all adequate and fitted well. Although the coral at the bay is pretty disappointing (in terms of colour and variety) the sea life is plentiful - heaps of beautiful fish and saw a sea turtle.

we got picked up in a limo it was amazing with 2 other people.our snorkel equipment was also included.go on the early trip as it is really busy after ten.we saw a tutrtle and an octupus.its really shallow so you do get scrapped along the coral.take some snacks and drinks with u as u can't buy anything on the beach just at the top.the walk was nice up and down the hill.there is a shuttle bus which you have to pay for.i think it should be free as you already pay to get onto the beach.it was nice for the few hrs we were there

They picked us up right on time at our hotel. Got to Hanauma Bay with all the gears included. We picked a time to return. Have a great time there. Pricing was good too.

Had a wonderful time and the tour guide, Issac, on the bus was really funny and nice. Would highly recommend this to others.

The water in the bay was not as clear as I expected it to be -- maybe that's normal for it, I do not know. Aside from that, everything else was outstanding: the people the material the arrangements, the transportation were fantastic.
