What You Can Expect

Oahu Shore Excursion: Hanauma Bay Snorkeling

Hanauma Bay

Take a snorkel break while docked in Honolulu at the spectacularly beautiful Hanauma Bay. The Hanauma Bay Oahu Nature Preserve is a natural crescent beach in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano. The bay is protected by the volcanic formation and the waters are famously clear, providing the ideal environment to spot fish and other marine wildlife.

Your tour begins with pickup at central location, located 6 minutes away from the Port of Honolulu. When you arrive at Hanauma Bay, you will have ample free time to snorkel, lounge on the beach and play in the warm waters. Snorkel gear, including a high-quality dive mask, snorkel and fins, is included.

The City and County of Honolulu's Marine Educational Center at Hanauma Bay features marine displays of wildlife in the bay, an educational video theater and other facilities. Before anyone starts a Hanauma Bay tour, it's mandatory to watch the video in order to be informed about the bay's geological and historical background and to learn the importance of protecting Hanauma Bay for future visitors.

Worry-free Shore Excursion:
We will ensure your excursion ends with ample time for you to return to the Honolulu port for your ship’s departure. In the extremely unlikely event your ship has departed, we will arrange for transportation to the next port-of-call. If your ship is delayed and you are unable to attend this activity, your money will be refunded. See our terms and conditions for full details.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2014

The tour was good. The place was also beautiful.

However, the local contact number I have been given on my booking was incorrect. I spent a lot of time trying to call the wrong number and was a bit panic worry about how to confirm my pick up etc. Fortunately, the hotel staff search the company and found the correct contact number for me.
