To begin, this beautiful Bay is filled with a large variety of fish with breathtaking scenery. The water is warm and deep blue accompanied with a Sandy Beach. They make sure everyone there has a general knowledge of what not to do on the Reef...More
Beautiful beach sitting in an ancient volcanic caldera. Fairly safe snorkeling due to the reef offshore. Not much current, not too deep and no risk of sharks or anything big, but lots and lots of fish, some turtles. Water is crystal clear. Big hint, get...More
Great snorkeling experience, lots of friendly Hawaiian reef fishes to see. Great activity to introduce people to snorkeling. Summer months for calmer ocean conditions, but generally safe year round. Try to catch the "low tide" for cleaner water conditions. Get there early for parking. Don't...More

Looked on thebus.org and it says there is no bus that runs to Hanauama Bay which actually kind of surprises me.

Day two looks way too hectic! I'd recommend cutting out two of the three of Waimanalo/Byodo/Kailua and spend some quality time at the one you keep in your itinerary. I'd also suggest you add a catamaran sail to day three.
Where to snorkle instead of Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve (9 Replies)
We are experienced snorklers who hate crowds. Is Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve worth it? Staying in Wakiki before and after a cruise. Any alternative suggestions? Willing to rent a car.

I've enjoyed these spots. Kuilima Cove - Great place for beginner snorkeling On Oahu Kahe Point Beach Park - One of my favorite snorkeling beaches on Oahu Sharks Cove - One of the most famous snorkel and dive beaches on the North Shore Hanauma Bay - Probably some of the most fish in one place in all of Hawaii Kaena - Blue water... white sand... postcard perfect
