Great snorkling, but not what it use to be

Made trip back to Hawaii after having lived there 25 years ago. In addition to parking fees, you now pay $15 to enter Hanama Bay and have to watch a movie (telling you to not... read more

Great place to snorkel about 30 minutes from Waikiki. Recommend "Snorkelfest" tour company which provides equipment and transportation.

We purchased a snorkeling excursion that was recommended by Trip Advisor and it was a HASSLE! Yes, we were picked up at our hotel (30 minutes late) then given a half-hour narrated tour of Honolulu homes, dumped at an office for equipment, piled into another van that only drove us half-way up the hill, transferred to a third van that...

Made trip back to Hawaii after having lived there 25 years ago. In addition to parking fees, you now pay $15 to enter Hanama Bay and have to watch a movie (telling you to not walk on the coral; but sadly, many people still do). If you have never been snorkling before, you will definately enjoy this; and much of... More

Hanama bay was incredible! I've been snorkelling in many places, but none as beautiful or as exciting as hanama. There are so many creatures to see, and everything is maintained so nicely. Only downside was a very long line to get in (even though we were very early), but it is understandable for such an amazing place to visit.

This is a beautiful site bring your camera. Beach gets very crowded with tourists but is okay for a day trip. You can take the trolley down and back up for a nominal fee. Long steep walk. Life guards are present and the water is gorgeous. Fish will be swimming between your legs. Bring your snorkel gear, but there are... More
