Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your Honolulu snorkeling adventure begins with pickup at your hotel. All of your gear is provided, including a high-quality silicone dive mask, snorkel and fins before you head to the water.

Hanauma Bay is a natural crescent beach in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano, and is protected by the volcanic formation. Its crystal clear waters are the perfect place to see diverse marine life. You are asked to watch a video regarding the area’s historical and geological background before slipping into the water, in an effort to continue the preservation of the bay.

Then, snap on your gear and enjoy an underwater excursion through one of Hawaii’s most stunning natural attractions. You will be driven back to your hotel at the end of your snorkeling experience. Please note that the entrance fee into Hanauma Bay is not included in your ticket price.

Snorkeling at Haunama bay was good. Feedback I have is that we’re all given a time to meet the shuttle; we’re even told to be there 5-10 mins prior to ensure we don’t miss the shuttle. Our driver waited about 10-15 mins for a group to come while the rest of us sat in the van waiting; that time could have been spent snorkeling.

We apologize that you had to wait in the vehicle for our other customers. We understand that time is valuable and we wish things could have gone a little better. We appreciate your review and I will let my drivers know.

This was a great way to enjoy some beach time and do some snorkeling off the shoreline. Would have been better with less people but that is to be expected with a tourist spot...still a great excursion.

Excellent trip, the staff was very very very friendly and accomodating. I would not recommend going on a Wednesday because the bay is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays seem to be the most busy. Other than being busy, the bay was beautiful.

Thank you for your comments. We are glad you had a great time at the Bay. Yes, Wednesday is the busiest day of the week because it is closed on Tuesday. Saturday is actually the slowest day. We hope to see you again

The snorkeling was amazing I honestly didn't think I would see any fish but wow was I wrong! Wish I could go again right now. The water was very clear and the fish swim right up to you. Not only that but their service is amazing. I managed to trip and injure myself badly on the way back to the taxi and the driver rushed to help me and even drove me and my friend back to our hotel so didn't have to wait for the shuttle.

Hassle free way to get to the bay. Low tide made it a little hard to snorkel near beach as water was low and close to coral. No shade on the beach so pack or hire an umbrella or shelter.
icon Response from Host , Jan 2020
Thank you for your review. When the tide is low it can be difficult to snorkel as you are trying to not to touch the coral. Condtions are hard to predict but we hope you had a great time in Hawaii
