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!

Hanauma Bay was a beautiful place to visit. The water was a bit rocky to walk in so my husband did not snorkel and I was able to for a short time. Full of beautiful fish and great blue water.

Best price and option to get to see and try a little snorkelling in Hanauma Bay with no fuss involved, hotel pick up and drop off, snorkelling, equipment and nice beach mat supplied, option to stay on if you wish and make your own way back to your hotel. Loved it!

I know people will look for a bad review but they won't find it here. HOP was fantastic to work with. Friendly, knowledgable and very prompt. When we return in August we are using them. Again and doing this excursion again. But next time it's the full day excursion!

This could not have been more simple. Definitely a must see place in Oahu. The tour company provided everything necessary for a great day. Staff was very knowledgeable and helpful. I wish I would have been able to spend more time there!! Nothing but great things to say. Very easy to book on viator as well!

The weather was a bit windy, but enjoyed the snorkeling very much. The bay is really beautiful and full of fish, not a lot of coral. The walk down was ok and we didn't realise we had to pay for the tram. I think this is a bit too much after paying US7.50 each to get into the bay. Not a lot of sun cover unless you take your umbrella which is a bit pointless as you have to carry it.

They contacted me the day before because I had not scheduled a pick up. I explained we had our own car and the guy sent me directions on how to get to their location. It was easy and they were waiting for us to give us our gear. They drove us to Hanauma Bay and the driver was very knowledgeable in the area and gave us some good recommendations. He was prompt on the time he gave us for pick up. I would totally use this again. Mahalo.

Hanauma Bay is a must . As soon as you walk in the water and glide away ,you start see fish. It was the best day I've had in Hawaii. Just take water and food from you hotel.

this was awesome, I would do this again. But next time, i would plan on wearing a shirt while i snorkeled. Even though there was over cast i still got sun burned.

The snorkelling in Hanauma Bay is incredible. I would recommend staying the whole day here, I myself would have liked to have stayed longer...

Great day snorkelling!! We were picked up without any hassles and all staff were helpful and friendly. The snorkelling was great fun, lots of fish and we got lucky seeing a turtle feeding and swimming for quite a while.

Viator did an outstanding job of making our day trip to Haunama a success. We were picked up promptly not far from our hotel Hale Koa and dropped off at the hotel at the conclusion of our trip. We were transferred to a different van in Hawaii Kai for the trip to the bay. On the return trip, we had a slight delay at the Hawaii Kai office, where the office staff provided snacks AND a charger for my phone I would highly recommend Viator to my friends and family.
