You rarely get the chance to explore a vibrant coral reef and see 450+ species of tropical fish. So don't miss this opportunity. Your adventure includes round-trip transportation from Waikiki along with sanitized snorkel equipment. You will not be disappointed.

Hanauma Bay is a protected marine life conservation area and one of the world's best places for novice snorkelers. Within the bay's pristine and clear waters, visitors can swim through a stunning coral reef with more than 450 species of vibrant tropical fish, a quarter of which are native to Hawaii. A snorkeling excursion in Hanauma Bay provides that quintessential Hawaiian beach feeling that brings tourists from around the world to the white sands of Oahu.

Your half-day pass with Kaimana Tours' Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventures includes round-trip transportation from Waikiki (about 25 minutes each way) and all the equipment you will need. You'll get a silicone-tempered mask, "J"-type snorkels, and endurance vinyl acetate fins, plus a defogger for your masks—and all equipment is sanitized after each use. Additional snorkeling accessories (like underwater cameras) are available onsite for an additional cost, or you can bring your own gear if you prefer.

En route to Hanamua Bay, a DVD presentation of Hawaiian marine life will get you inspired with a glimpse of the fish and sea creatures you might encounter. Upon arrival, your driver will give you an overview of how to use your gear. There is also a 10-minute mandatory orientation video that runs on the half-hour to give you the low-down on snorkeling guidelines.

The walk from Hanauma Bay Snorkeling Adventures to the beach is a bit steep, so keep that in mind when deciding what to bring with you. Lockers are available on the beach, and there is food at the top of the hill, but many visitors recommend packing a cooler and stashing it in a locker.

Reservations are required, and past visitors suggest choosing the 7:00 am pick-up time to avoid crowds later in the day.

Remember your waterproof sunscreen!
