Hanauma Bay Snorkel Adventure - Hawaiian Ocean Promotions on Oahu

Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is one of the most popular natural attractions in the world. It is a natural crescent beach in the sunken caldera of an extinct volcano. The bay is protected by the walls of volcanic formation and the waters are pure and clear, providing an ideal environment for fish and other marine life. The inner reef beach area is a long descent from zero to about 13 feet and perfect for children and casual snorkeling, while the outside reef portion is from 13 feet to 30 or more feet and good as a fun challenge for more advanced snorkeling.
The City and County of Honolulu has started to take necessary steps to protect the bay, and in 2002 the Marine Educational Center was built, consisting of marine displays of wildlife in the bay, an educational video theater, and other facilities. Watching the video is mandatory to keep visitors informed about the geological and historical background of the bay and at the same time to educate them about the importance of protecting Hanauma Bay.

Beautiful water!! Snorkeling was great! The vision correction goggles were wonderful for me since I wear glasses!! I think the shuttle up and down the hill should be free, however. The video was interesting and informative. Definitely a Fantastic experience for a fairly reasonable price
