Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is possible once of O’ahu’s most popular snorkeling spots.
Hanauma Bay is closed on Tuesday. It is located about a 20 minute drive away from Waikiki. You can rent snorkeling equipment or choose a snorkeling tour which includes the equipment. The snorkeling is usually very good and there is a vast array of marine life to observe.
Go early in the morning to avoid the crowds and the fish seem to be more active.
The coral has been a bit destroyed by inconsiderate or ignorant bathers. There are patches of missing coral reef. We heard a story that the military did an underwater explosives test on the coral. Hopefully that was a while back when the world was not so eco conscious.
