Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventure Half-Day Tour

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your Honolulu snorkeling adventure will begin with pickup at your hotel. All of your gear will be provided, including a high-quality silicon 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 will be 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 $7.50 USD per person entrance fee into Hanauma Bay is not included in your ticket price.

    This is just a pick up and drop off service, that is it! If you have 2 or more people that would be more economic to take Uber or rent a car. Don’t book this!

    You can spend all day at the bay, but the earlier you get there the better the choice of beach space (always go to the left of the bay for better snorkelling). Enjoy ....

    As Denise said, you can stay as long as you like. If you go via a tour company (we used HOP) they arrange a time to pick you up. But really you only ned 3 hours maximum.
