Really amazing experience. We didn't waste any second. The guide picked me up at my hotel on time, he already had all tickets for the Hanauma bay and the tram so we could go snorkeling as soon as we arrived to the bay. Water was very clear and we saw tons of fish! Well worth the time and money!

We truly enjoyed the activity. Our guide was very knowledgable of the bay and where to see many fish and coral. I was comfortable the geer provided and we were given ample time to explore. more

Jim and Ann

This was a first for me, my friend had been before.It was very interesting and we enjoyed it very much.The only problem was the wa...ter was a little murky.We do understand that is out of your control.All in all it was alot of fun and we enjoyed it very much. Bill Claypool more

Bill Claypool

This was our first experience snorkeling and my wife cannot swim. Our instructor, Alan, helped my wife overcome her fears and we ...were both able to enjoy the bay. Alan took great care to guide us and make us feel comfortable. We immediately observed a multitude of fish and coral reef creatures in some of the clearest water we encountered on Oahu. We fell in love with snorkeling and will definitely do it again. We would definitely recommend this adventure to everyone. more

Billy and Mahtab

This was my husband and I first time in Hawaii and our 1st activity was snorkeling in Hanauma Bay. Our guided snorkel tour, Allyn ...was very helpful and he brought snacks and drinks for us that was well needed for this activity. Equipments were provided. The snorkeling was awesome; we were taken to about 8 feet or more of water and had a chance to swim with the fishes. Hanauma Bay is beautiful but with this hands-on experience, we both learned to appreciate it. There were tons of fishes out there as we were snorkeling and we also had a chance to get very close to the corals. Overall, my husband and I enjoyed this very much. Thank you so much. more

Mr. Anonymous

my friends and i had the time of our lives snorkeling at the bay. the view was amazing and it was nice seeing all of the reef fish... and green sea turtles! more

Mr. Anonymous

Our guide, Alan, was wonderful. This was my first time snorkeling and I was a little (ok, a lot!) nervous. Alan literally guided... me by the arm and made sure I was ok the whole time. The bay is spectacular, the water clear and the fish incredible! I would recommend this tour to anyone new to snokeling and to those with experience. more

A couple from Massachuset

This wa our first trip to Hawaii and first time snorkeling. We loved it! The guide knew all the spots and lead us was patient to... the beautiful fish and sea turtles. We couldn't have asked for a better time. A definite must do. I would have loved to have spent more time snorkeling, but our tour was up. 5 Stars! more

Snorkeler 08-28-08

This is a very beautiful spot, lovely beach. I have been snorkling many times before including the Great Barrier Reef but have ne...ver done a guided tour. It was great to have a guide because he took us to places we would never have gone without him and saw much more. He new where all the hiding spots were. We saw so much more than if we had been just on our own. and what a great swim we had. Then snacks were provided after the tour. Well done! Cindi Johnston Whitby, On Canada more

Cindi Johnston

The bay is so beautiful! We saw fish of every size, shape, and color. We even saw a sea turtle, which was what I really wanted to ...see. This is a MUST for any animal lover. more

Mr. Anonymous

It was the most wonderful experience for both of us! Allen was an exceptional instructor, holding my hand almost all the way. He... was very patient, and we were surprised he had some cold drinks and snacks for us. He gets an EXCEPTIONAL rating! (September 2008) more

Ted and Glenna Stark

Excellent adventure, was disappointed one of the family members had a fear of water that could not be overcome. The snorkeling wa...s fantastic and the owner knew all the great places to go and see aquatic life. WIsh there would have been some sort of refund for the one member who could not get out in the water. more


This was the most fun my girlfriend and I had. The water was a little murky the day we went out there, but you could definitly see... all sorts of fish out there. It was our first time snorkling and our guide was excellent and stayed with us and continuously made sure we were all ok! He even showed us out where there were 2 huge sea turtles. We can't wait to go back! more


We had so much fun on this excursion. Our guide, Alan, helped us with his clear instruction. We feel that he went above and beyond... our expectations. He showed us where many fish were and we had a wonderful first time snorkeling experience. more


This was by far the best part of our vacation! We chose to do the small group tour because my husband can't swim and has been in the ocean. Not to worry, our guide, Alan, was fabulous!!! He was very patient and helpful. Not only did he help us with the technical part of snorkeling, but he brought us to some areas of Hanauma Bay that most don't see. We were lucky enough to swim with four sea turtles! We would certainly go back! more

J & F Nap

This was the first time I have ever been snorkeling and it was wonderful, the guide was very helpful and patient. If the current e...very got tough he would grab our hands and pull us through. It was the high light of my trip to Hawaii and I would recommend it to anyone. more

Mr. Anonymous

It was my first time snorkeling. Alan was our guide and he was very patient and friendly! I was a bit afraid of the deep waters an...d currents, but Alan held my hand the whole time I was in the water and pulled me along. He also gave tips for snorkeling which was very helpful. Recommend going to an earlier tour at Hanauma Bay if you want to see sea turtles because tides will be higher and they can get closer to the reefs. more

Ms. Li

Had a great time snorkeling. Mask kept leaking sea water though. Guide was good - very quiet, but let my friends and me take it al...l in. The safety instructions were quick but succinct. We were fortunate enough to see several sea turtles, our guide offered when he got his photos to email them to us. I've been snorkeling in the Bahama's without a guide for the same price. Overall, great experience for a great price. more

Mr. Anonymous

Awesome!!! First time snorkeling for our family (3-kids ages 21, 19, 13). Alan was a very good tour guide - patient and knowledg...eable & made it easy for us. Our daughter was a bit nervous going over the coral reef so he held her hand until she made it over & then we saw sea turtles which was the highlight. Fish were incredible throughout. Being from Wisconsin, we had an incredible trip and we would sign up to do this again if we get the chance to return. We brought underwater cameras which made it fun for the kids. 5-stars. : ) more

This was our first snorkeling experience. We didn't go underneath the water, just stayed swimming on top, which was fine with... me. The fish were beautiful. The coral reefs are amazing and really a beautiful sight to see. We didn't get to see any sea turtles, but the schools of fish were so great. Our guide held my hand the entire time, and he was really cautious and concerned about the safety to the group. He made my husband and I feel really comfortable our first time snorkeling. Definitely the best and most beautiful place to snorkel in Hawaii. more


It was a good adventure for both of us, my wife and I. The staff was very friendly and we both really liked his guidance. A litt...le improvements could be pressed on snacks and water, which the tour said would provide. I think the value was a bit pricey but overall it was worth it. more

Mr. Anonymous

AMAZING!!!! I have never snorkeled before and this was completely amazing. Our guide showed us great tips on using the mask and ho...w to breathe. I was a little scared but once I got in I did so great as did my family. The only bummer I shall say is there was another couple with us and when we went past the reef to explore where there were not others he panicked which made the whole group go back in. I wish there were two guides, one to take the rest and one to take the others back. I was disappointed we didn't go out but it was still an amazing experience that I will never forget. I gave 5 stars because even though I didn't get to experience the snorkeling further out it was still amazing to see the fish and reef. more

Wendy D

We had initially scheduled to do the early dive but conditions were bad that morning so we went later. We are glad we did! We saw ...6 sea turtles! The guides were very attentive and informative. They kept us in a small group and pointed things out so everyone would get to see them. They even provide a snack and water at the end. This was a great experience and we got some good photos! more

Mrs. Heard

Took our son for a graduation gift along with his girlfriend and none of us had never snorkled before so thought the guided tour w...ould be the best option. Allyn (sorry if it's spelled wrong) was our guide and he was awesome. He was very patient and taught us exactly what we needed to do. He was great for helping you not getting overwhelmed since as we found out, snorkeling takes a bit of time to learn. However, once you relax you can enjoy the experience. Not so sure we could have done it on our own. The only suggestion I can make is that the bottled water needs to be cold. It was very warm. Other then that, it was an awesome experience. Well worth the money spent. It's amazing the marine life you can see. We did see a sea turtle and a small eel. Absolutely beautiful. Hope to get a chance to do it again. Don't have my pics back since we used underwater cameras, hopefully I can add them later! more


This was a first for myself, daughter and two 16 year old granddaughters. Our guide was Allyn and he was very experienced, making... us all feel confident and safe. We all really enjoyed this activity and will do it again. more


I had the greatest time on this tour. Our tour guide, Allen, was very helpful and courteous (and patient!) I saw more than I... expected as far as underwater critters, even a sea turtle, and it ranks up there with my best memories of Hawaiian experiences. more


This activity was awesome, our instuctor was the best, he was very patient with me and my friend, and was very knowledgable of the... sport and area. I would definitely do it again, and hope i get the same tour guide more


My family (parents & 2 adult kids) went on a tour, in which we were the only party booked for that afternoon. Our guide, Ally...n picked us up curb side from our hotel and was super nice. It was my family's first experience snorkeling and truthfully my mom and I were terrified. Allyn did a fantastic job at easing our fears and explaining everything. While we were in the water, he held my mom's hand the entire time which my mom appreciated so much. My parents got tired and we all went back to get re-hydrated. Allyn took my brother and I back out, along a different route. We saw a couple sea turtles. When we were over the reef, Allyn pulled me in a different direction to point right in front of us... There was this huge sea turtle, I could've reached out and touched it! I only wish the batteries in my camera and the dive could've lasted longer! AMAZING! We would definitely recommend it to other first timers! Thanks Allyn! The Decker's Afternoon tour Aug 16, 2010 more

The Decker Family

We had a great time, our guide was very helpful, the bay was awesome and we saw lots and lots of fish and turtles. We are already ...planning a return trip to Hawaii. more

Kelly Maynard

This was a great trip! First time for my family. It was nice to have everything taken care of and have a guide in the water! Rea...lly loved not having to wait in any lines. We also got great pics of us in the water by our guide. He was wonderful! Thanx more


My husband and I snorkeled for the first time in our lives at Hanuma Bay. We were picked up by Allyen as per the schedule at sharp... 7:30 AM from our hotel. We reached Hanuma Bay well in time and were joined by a kind Japanese lady Fumio who works with Allyen. My husband and I cannot swim and hadn't ever ventured in sea. Everyone in our group knew swimming and they snorkeled with Allyen. We stayed back with Fumio who first taught us to keep our bodies floating. She then held our hands and took us through the reefs. We saw eels and schools of fish. For us snorkeing was one of the most wonderful experiences of our lives and highlight of our Hawaii trip. We are thankful to Fumio for putting in so much effort helping us stay afloat and navigating us through water. We would recommend this trip to everyone! Thanks ton Fumio. more


We knew that snorkeling at Hanauma bay was a public activity, but we wanted something that was "high touch" and could with any individual needs if they came up. This was definitely it and we were very satisfied. Group sizes are usually small, like 4, but ours was luckily just the 2 of us. Alan, the guide's pre-outing equipment instructions helped ensure that we could use the mask with the least problems and we always felt safe & accommodated. This was the best snorkeling experience I've had of the several we've done so far. We even saw a sea turtle for a bit nibbling around the coral and coming up for air! more


First of all, Allen our instructor was very cool. We felt right at home and we got lucky that we had only 1 other family with us s...o we got great lessons. The views of hanauma bay is like something from a postcard!!! The snorkeling is so amazing and we even got to swim with turtles!! This is a must too because the line to get in is long but with Allen we went right to the front. First class service for sure. Most important thing: underwater camera we bought the best on the market just for this reason and it was so worth it!! more


We had never snorkeled before, so we wanted a guide to show us the ropes. Allyn was great. He took lots of time to make sure we ...were comfortable each step of the way. It was a great experience, and we would for sure recommend if you have never snorkeled. Was fantastic.. more

Mr. Anonymous

I am not a good swimmer, almost 70 yrs and never snorkeled and had my 10 and 13 yr old granddaughters with me. The experience was... great! I felt we were all take great care of, felt safe and had the first of many (I hope) snorkeling experiences. I would recommend this company to anyone. And any older people who want to try this for the first time, this is the company to use. Only comment is that I wish it were longer. Thanks a lot. more

Caroll Fowler

My first time going to Hawaii and doing snorkeling was one of the best things I did. I highly recommend you book with Hawaiian act...ivities I had the dest experience. We had hotel pick and drop off and transportation was on time. Or instructor took us to snorkel on thebest part of the Beach to see more fish and turtles. The gear was in good conditions. Instructor also took pictures of us under water and posted them on Facebook base on the date of tour. Mahalo hope you enjoy your booking. more


This trip was one of the highlights of our trip to Oahu. We were disapointed that there were no pictures from the day of our trip.... more

Linda Evans

It was amazing and Allen was very nice! I went alone, but he became my company. He was very considerate to us to teach how to do s...norkeling for such a begginer. It was stunning to see beautiful fishes and turtle. Luckily, turtle was just in front of me!! He took many pictures for us during the tour. It is worth to do and if i visit again to Hawaii, i would like to join to this tour again! Thank you! :) more

Sejung, Hwang

This had a ton of beautiful fish that come right up to you. It was cool to see. There were 3 sea turtles that we saw as well. This... was a great tour. Wish it lasted longer. more

Amanda and John

This was my first time snorkeling, and Alan, our guide, was terrific. I had trouble figuring out the breathing, and he was very ki...nd, patient, and worked to insure that I had a great experience. He was prepared with good equipment we needed, got us through the Haunauma Bay entry easily, and took us on a wonderful swim with loads of great life to see. We saw tons of fish, a huge turtle, an eel, the reef, and it was a fabulous experience. more


Loved everything about this snorkling tour. The experience was so unbelievable. The instructors were awesome and friendly. I would... do this snorkling tour again. Seen many different fish and twoTurtles. We actually went Pretty far out and the instructors were besides us and checking on us to make sure we were ok. My kids loved it to and talked about it for the whole day!! Go snorkling it Was awesome! Worth every penny I spent! more

Bridgett Montano

I had never swum in the ocean even though I am a resident of N. California (water too cold). So I signed my husband and I up for ...a beginner snorkeling trip. Us two old fogies and 5 young Japanese students took the class. Both instructors were fluent in Japanese and very accommodating to us as well. We followed a turtle for several minutes and saw many colorful fish in the Bay. A truly wonderful experience. I will try it again some day. more

Jeanne A

This was amazing. The water was warm. You could see fish everywhere! Our guide was awesome! I was very nervous and he put me at ease. I can't wait to do it again!!!!! more


Very friendly and experienced crew. I've snorkeled at Haunama Bay several times on my own, and was ready for a guided visit..., by far the best trip ever. Saw a turtle and of course hundreds of fish. Highly recommend more


Amazing place. Awesome guides. Highly recommend guide if you do Hanauma Bay.


Had an amazing time. Our guide was very knowledgable and fun. He provided all equipment, snacks, water, and secure place for belon...gings. Felt safe at all times and saw some beautiful wildlife! more


This was an exceptionable excursion! Our snorkel guides were really great and made sure we had a great time. We were picked up and... delivered back to our hotel. Would definitely recommend this trip! more

Wyatt M

Very great tour, picked up on time, super friendly conversation and snorkelling was great, we got to see all sorts of marine life ...including a beautiful sea turtle! more


For anyone wanting to try something new, don't miss this one. I learned how to snorkel!!!!


Spent a great day in the bay, loved that he took underwater pics for us!

Laura from Arkansas

One of our best days in Oahu. Dan & Chieko of Blue Hawaii Divers are just the best. If you go snorkeling ,select them. Very kn...owledgable. Thank you Chieko for attending to my wife, who had a problem with first time time snorkeling and turned it into the great day . We would do it again! Highly recommend. more

Dave G

We had a great time snorkeling today! Dan was an excellent guide and he was very patient and so knowledgable. We will definitely d...o this again! more

Amy Dean

The instructor, one of the owners, was very patient and explained every step of what we'd be doing. I was in a small group o...f three, and the instructor held onto my arm for most of the hour until I felt I was okay by myself. The bay is calm with so many ornamental fish and gorgeous reefs. This was, hands-down, one of the best experiences I had in Hawaii. more

Jennifer Wolf

Dan was amazing helping my sister and I with learning to snorkel. We would love to come back again and take another lesson and see... more of the area. Thank you for a wonderful experience. more

Judy Davis

It was my first snorkeling experience. The guide was super nice and friendly. She was taking pictures of us and later posted them ...on facebook. That day we could see many fish and water was clear. I loved it soooo much, so next day I came to Hanauma Bay bymyself. Thanks for the great experience! more


We had the best experience, very impressed with how smoothly everything went.

Donna Long

Everyone had a great time. Guides were patient and informative. Saw a lot of different fish


AMAZING for my first time snorkeling! Perfect weather, clear water, ran into 3 turtles and a beautiful school of fish. Dan and Chi...eko are very sweet people. Would definitely have brought a waterproof camera if I had one. Recommend hydrating beforehand, especially if you haven't swam in the ocean before. We got lucky with the weather on a beautiful day! more

Christina and Ruth

Awesome experience. Saw so many fishes, water was so clear and the atmosphere was fantastic.


Dan and his wife were the best tour guides!! They took great care of you in the water and made sure you enjoyed your time!!!!


This tour exceeded our expectations, Dan & his wife were amazing tour guides! They were patient especially since I had never s...norkeled before & made sure we were comfortable before letting us venture on our own. Best part was that we got to swim with a sea turtle which was icing on the cake. There are a lot of tours out there advertising the same thing but I would highly recommend to book this tour you will be glad you did! more


We are visitors from Australia and have been on the Great Barroer Reef but this was also outstanding. Dan took us where we could s...wim over coral and see lots of fish which he named. We had a wonderful morning and learnt a lot about the marine life. One novice to snorkelling managed it perfectly. Highly recommended! more


This was very fun. Our guides where great and very patient with our nervous swimmer. It was an enjoyable experience that we would again! Thank you. more


We had Dan for our guide. On the drive out to the bay he gave us lots of useful information about the local culture. He was upbeat... and very knowledgeable. At the bay he was organized and took very good care of us. We had serveral who were snorkeling for the first time and he made them feel very comfortable. As an added bonus he takes pictures of your trip and posts them to FB so you can grab them. No extra charge! Cool! I would highly recommend this excursion more


As most of you know, things to do on the island of Oahu can be pricey at times. If you want to see your money stretch and to get m...ore that you bargained for, take this trip. Dan picked us up right at our hotel and drove us to Hanauma Bay. His equipment was easy to use, very accommodating and the adventure itself was awesome. I could go on and on about how great of a time that my wife and I had but words could never do it justice. From my experience, I would say to give this a shot. Lest we forget one minor detail, I live in Anaheim, CA near Huntington Beach aka Surf City USA, and I have never been more comfortable in the ocean than I was on this snorkeling trip. It really was that awesome. more

Salvador E.

We had fun, but we like to do our own thing also. The tour was great, but the group thing is not really to our taste. Thanks for... a fun time though. more

Mr. Anonymous

Alan was prompt and greeted us with a friendly smile and manner. He was thorough in his explanations and made sure we understood ...his message. Kiko (sp) was great with her bubbly personality and her delivery of sea creatures to the girls. The sea life was incredible and the girls had a grat time. We all commented on the quality of equipment as well which was top notch. Go, try them out. I would recomment it. more

Mr. Anonymous

Having a guide was really nice since this was my first time ever snorkeling. Alan taught us the basics and provided us with equip...ment needed. It was great seeing all the colorful fish. One downfall (which wasn't anyone's fault) was that the water was really rough the day we went, so the experience was cut short since we couldn't go out as far as planned. Would recommend to first-time snorkelers! more

Mr. Anonymous

Did not enjoy this because of my own shortcomings. Allyn tried to make it easy for me. He is to be commended for that!

Mr. Anonymous

Not being an experienced snorkler, it was great having Alan as our guide. He took us the good locations and was very helpful the ...entire time. We saw hundreds of fish, a sea turtle and the scenery was just beautiful. more


Our guide was Juan Carlos and he did a great job. Took time with us (maybe because we were the only family since someone else can...celed). Nice Bay, I think it was just right for us beginners. more

Mr. Anonymous

Don't let the less then perfect weather deter you from going. We went on a cloudy overcast day and were still able to enjoy t...he fishes and sea turtles. Bring a water camera, get picture opportunity. more

So Cal Beaches

We must say a big thank you to Alan who really looked after us on this snorkel tour. My husband had never been snorkelling before ...and isn't particularly confident in the ocean, but Alan was brilliant, staying with him all the time, making sure he got the hang of everything. He pointed out the fish etc and knew exactly where the best spots were to make the most of the time we had at Hanauma Bay. I would definately recommend this tour to others. more

The Arkwells - UK

Really great tour. Two hours total in the water in all different spots. Hanuama bay was amazing and seeing all the fish was an ama...zing experience more

Ashley a

Great experience

My only criticism is that the time spent snorkeling in the water was somewhat limited in comparison with the total time scheduled ...for the tour. While our instructor/guide was very good, he moved us through the two areas snorkeled in the bay very quickly. I wanted to take some pictures, but found the time to do so was very limited as the group had to move through each area at a pace that limited the time for individual viewing of fish and coral. As a result, I was only able to get very few pictures, and, to have time to enjoy a direct view of the fish without looking through the camera screen! More time in the water and a slower pace would be desirable. more

Worth paying the premium beautiful experience

Thoroughly enjoyed our snorkeling experience with Alan. Varying comfort levels for our family; Alan was very patient with us and ...helped make the experience very positive. Just wish it had lasted longer. more


Was a great experience for beginner snorkeler. I liked how the guides were taking pictures for their Facebook page and said we cou...ld download the images of ourselves for our records. My only complaint was that the water was not super clear, but other than that, it was worth it. more


This is our first time snorkelling so it helps to have personal guides to be with us. We get to have one on one personal attenti...on. The guides held our hands most of the time and we get to see a lot of fishes and corals. It is unbelievable and we can't believe we can do it. It is one item crossed out from our bucket list. more


Dan and his wife were great guides! Best first snorkeling experience even though I couldn't stay out in the water long :)


My family had a wonderful time on this tour. Hanauma Bay is truely beautiful and this tour enabled us to jump the cues and make t...he most of our time here. We had 9 people in our group with 2 instructors. Thanks for an amazing morning! more


My boyfriend and I went on the Hanauma Bay snorkling adventure. It was great to see the area and we did see a lot of fish but the ...activity was a little slow and boring for us (we had both snorkled before) I recommend this activity for first timers or those with children. We did enjoy it but not as much as we would have if it was a little more exciting or faster paced. The guide was nice and very friendly but not very informative about what we saw. more
