Frequently Asked Questions

How deep will we dive at Hanauma Bay?

The maximum depth for scuba diving at Hanauma Bay is approximately 30 feet. Your instructor will pick the best depth and area for you to be in based on your comfort level and ocean conditions. Sometime getting out through the reef to deeper water is not possible. If this happens to be the case, your dive will be in shallow water. Deeper water does not mean more fish or better diving! Actually, as you go deeper underwater, less light penetrates and the color of the coral and reef fish fades.

Can a person come just to observe?

Yes, you can definitely do so, but please be ready to pay the admission fee at the entrance.

Had the best time ever. If I had more time would have done it again. Would do everytime.

Our instructor Nate was very patient, and took us to 15-20 feet on the shore dive. We got to see some awesome things, including an... eel, the Hawaiian state fish (the Humuhumunukunukuapua`a, which I can't say haha), and a large school of fish that followed us around. It was a great experience, and has motivated us to go get our certification! more

I have been to Hanauma Bay many times over the years, and often felt frustrated that I was seeing only part of its beauty. Scuba... diving was the perfect way to experience the magic and wonder of the bay. I saw so many different species of fish, that I couldn't even recall how many. Nate, our instructor was excellent. He gave very thorough instruction, and guided us perfectly. I felt so safe, and was able to just relax and enjoy the under water world. My favourite moment was spying the resident eel in his hides hole under a rock. more

We came to dive for the first time after certification and had a wonderful experience. Nate, our dive sherpa, was very helpful and... helped us relax and have fun. We saw a wide variety of fish. more

Nate made us feel very safe and I would defiantly recommend him to anyone! He had a lot of experience and made it so much fun! more

Jennifer Huerta

We had a great time scuba diving Hanama Bay with our instructor Nathan. He picked us up at the hotel on time. We were able to do... some of the training during the drive which meant more time for us at the bay. Nathan's upbeat personality really added to the experience. more
