What you can expect

Dip beneath the waters of Hanauma Bay and find out why this sheltered cove is one of Oahu's most popular snorkeling destinations. Drift past colorful coral reef formations, wave to passing sea turtles, and follow schools of neon-bright tropical fish.

Start your afternoon with convenient pickup from your hotel, and then ride out to the sugary sands that frame Hanauma Bay, a crescent-shaped body of water protected from the ocean's pounding surf. Grab your gear, get tips from expert staff on fitting your goggles on right, and then dive in.

Swim through gentle waves and scan the ocean floor for any one of the 114 species of fish that call this aquatic paradise home. You might see the black stripes of reef triggerfish or the nimble movements of a bright yellow Forceps Fish. Lucky snorkelers might even spot the giant shell of a majestic sea turtle.

The warm water ensures you can snorkel comfortably for hours, but if you need a break, find a place to soak up the rays on the beach or cool off under the shade of a swaying palm tree. A small snack bar is also available for a quick bite to eat or a refreshing drink between swims.
