    Great day on the beach with excellent snorkeling and good variety of fish. Not a long drive from downtown and not overcrowded.

    Snorkeling at Haunama bay was good. Feedback I have is that we’re all given a time to meet the shuttle; we’re even told to be there 5-10 mins prior to ensure we don’t miss the shuttle. Our driver waited about 10-15 mins for a group to come while the rest of us sat in the van waiting; that time could have been spent snorkeling.

    This was a great way to enjoy some beach time and do some snorkeling off the shoreline. Would have been better with less people but that is to be expected with a tourist spot...still a great excursion.

    Hassle free way to get to the bay. Low tide made it a little hard to snorkel near beach as water was low and close to coral. No shade on the beach so pack or hire an umbrella or shelter.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our Hanauma Bay snorkel trip. We were especially pleased with the snorkel gear as the masks sealed perfectly and the snorkels were easy to use and didn't fill with water. Great day trip.

    Should have drove ourselves to the bay. Basically this was just to pay for travel which we really did not need. Can rent equipment at the bay. Tour did not include entrance fee.

    Very efficient way of planning a half-day snorkeling trip to Hanauma Bay, you could do it cheaper on your own but extra cost is minimal in exchange for low stress, highly recommend it!

    When I think of a snorkeling adventure it's usually accompanied by a guided tour of the snorkeling. This tour is more a ride from your hotel to the beach (it doesn't even cover the entrance fee to the beach or the tram to get to and from the entrance). What it does include is a ride to and from your hotel, Snorkeling equipment, beach mat and life vest.

    Water was not very clear due to wave action. By time we got there (picked up at 7 finally arrived at bay at 9) the beach was filling up as well as water. When we left at noon there were 30-40 people standing in line to get processed in and a lot of cars waiting just to get in to the site. What we saw was minimal. If possible take a boat out to one of the other snorkel sites.

    Very well organized tour. I was picked up on scheduled time. We stopped to get snorkeling gear for a few minutes. Hanauma Bay is a beautiful.
