All reviews water shoes tide pools hanauma bay sharp rocks north shore sea urchins great place to snorkel deeper area three tables lava rock sea life schools of fish an aquarium low tide snorkel gear beautiful fish snorkeling experience
We stopped by sharks cove on our journey up the north shore. It’s a unique snorkeling experience because of the rocky tide pool providing calm waters. Water shoes are definitely needed. We were also able to see whales from the beach.
We took our 7 year old here today and loved every second. We set up our chair on the sandy area by the restrooms and went tide pooling and snorkeling all morning. We saw lots of fish, sea urchins, crabs etc... bring reef safe sunscreen...More
What a surprise to find this place. We went twice, as the first time we weren't prepared to swim or snorkel. The cove was protected and many people were snorkeling, though we just waded and explored the tide pools. You should have water shoes.
Please, with ALL water activities wear reef safe sunscreen. They even sell it at Costco. People are poisoning the ecosystem and we won’t have anything left! Don’t come here if you can’t respect the life you will see!
We went to this place after spending three hours at the Dole plantation, and obviously it was much later than we were planning, so we didn’t get to enjoy the tide pool for long. Also, without water shoes, we were very limited to what we...More
Wake up people and stay of the coral and rocks. You are killing this place. Remember this "If you are not on Sand, DO NOT STAND. This is a preserve that is dying because people don't know any better. Thinking they are standing on rocks...More
We decided to make a quick stop here. We did not have shoes and went bare foot.
You definitely need to wear the proper shoes here! Need to be aware of the coral around you when making your way in.
It is beautiful and the...More
A wonderful tide pool that is a great place to snorkel in a calm environment. As any place go early to have less folks around. It can get a bit crowded with people coming in and out of the area. The pool is 2 or...More

I don't remember seeing anywhere to rent but we had stopped by a convenience store and they sell all kinds of products. We just bought the cheapest set. Also I would highly recommend bringing water shoes. I did not have these on me and my feet were hurting pretty bad from the rocks.

I would definitely recommend some long sleeve rash-guard shirts. 72 degree water and 10-15 mph wind can make for some shivers! They're readily available on Amazon and are affordable. They keep you warm, and keep the... More
I would definitely recommend some long sleeve rash-guard shirts. 72 degree water and 10-15 mph wind can make for some shivers! They're readily available on Amazon and are affordable. They keep you warm, and keep the wind/sunburn at bay. Water shoes are A MUST along the north shore.
Also, I forgot to mention earlier to check the tide charts and go at low and or slack tide for the safest waves/currents. Shark's Cove is very protected but can experience strong currents in places as the tide comes in.
