About Hanauma Bay


The state of Hawaii has initiated a new pilot program for Hanauma Bay. This new initiative has caused the bay to be open one less day per week and now closes earlier each day. Further, a reservation system must now be used so that the State can cap the number of visitors each day. Because of this, Snorkel Hanauma Bay can help you to make the most of your visit to Oahu by helping you to get into the bay without hassle. Contact us today to see how we can help you to reserve spot at Hanauma Bay. You can also check out our BLOG for news, information and updates about the bay. We look forward to serving you!

Hanauma Bay Parking Option

Are you planning on driving your own car out to snorkel at Hanauma Bay? Well, what you might not know is that there are limited Hanauma Bay parking stalls, which could limit your ability to access the park and may put a real damper on your day. The Hanauma Bay parking rate is $3 and the parking lot can easily fill up by 8:30 am. Because of this, many people have been turned away and are either left to park far away (and walk) or to try their luck another day. We have solved this issue by now offering a drive out option. With this new offering, we allow you to conveniently drive your car to our storefront in Koko Marina Shopping Center to park where we can provide you and your group with a convenient shuttle ride to and from the bay.
