Our driver Ronald was professional and humorous with great tips of the Bay! The Bay itself was a wonderful adventure...would recommend it a must do and with viator tours, good prices, good professional drivers. We booked 3 adventures with Viator tours.

Carl did an amazing job of explaining how to fit the mask and wear it. He also described the bay very well and gave great tips of how to make the most of our time there. The fish were gorgeous! We got to see a Monk seal sleeping in the beach! The kids loved it!!! Just wish the water had been warmer and the waves not so big when we were there. Next time though! Thank you so much!

The tour guide was right on time to pick us up and gave a great overview of what to expect once we're there - the best places on the beach to go, where not to go, where to find bathrooms and lockers, etc. We went on the 7 a.m. trip and I'm glad we went early - there was no line to get in and the beach wasn't too crowded. As more people arrived, the sand moved around a lot more and the water became cloudy and busy. The 7 a.m. trip actually got us to Hanauma Bay around 7:45 a.m. by time we picked up everyone on our shuttle, got our gear, and drove to the bay. Then we had to wait until 8 a.m. to watch the instructional video that everyone has to watch. They do this is in big groups so you're allotted a time to watch it. We had to be back on the shuttle by 11 a.m. so I would say you get a good 2.5 hours in of snorkeling. We opted not to use the lockers and we felt pretty safe leaving our things on the beach. It was early and not crowded though - use your own discretion! The only snack bar is quite far from the beach so I would suggest to bring your own snacks (or get your snack before you head down to the beach and clean up after yourself!). The bay was truly incredible. We saw tons of fish very close to the beach. You can swim out further to see more, but there is a good variety of marine life to see without going too far out. The service provided fins and I found that they really helped. I highly recommend a trip to Hanauma bay if you get the chance!

Enjoyed the snorkeling. Eric was our driver and was very helpful and friendly. Gave us some history of the area, pointed out many sights and was really fun to be with. Hanauma Bay is beautiful and I wish it was a lot closer to where we live so could visit more often. Thank you (Mahalo) for a great trip 🐠😊. Only suggestion is, that would be great if trip was an hour longer.

I was hesitant to book this tour having seen that there were little to no reviews on Viator. But i was pleasantly suprised. The tour bus driver was fast, efficient and informative - with a few giggles in there too. Getting to Hanauma bay he taught us how to use the equipment and the best spots for the snorkel. He told us what time he would be back and then he was off. A very free tour where you control the pace. Thank you!
