Beautiful Hanauma Bay on the southeast coast of the Hawaiian Island of Oahu draws  millions of visitors each year – and for good reason! Hanauma Bay is  one of Hawaii’s absolute best areas for scuba diving and snorkeling.  You’ll get an up-close look at all the beautiful marine life here.

Hanauma  Bay is on the same island as some favorite tourist areas – Waikiki,  Honolulu, Diamond Head, and more. For travelers staying on popular  Waikiki beach, Hanauma Bay shuttles are available to take you on day  trips over to the bay. Once there, you can explore the Hanauma Bay  Nature Preserve at your leisure!

You can expect to see upwards of  400 different kinds of fish in Hanauma Bay if you’re lucky. The bay is  particularly known for its population of parrotfish and green sea  turtles, which look absolutely beautiful coasting through the bright  blue waters.
Hanauma Bay is an official protected Nature Preserve  and also a Marine Life Conservation District. That means there are laws  to protect the bay. Visitors may not mistreat or harm any marine  animals and also may not have any contact with any coral heads, which  are often found on the sea floor. You must remember to be very careful  while snorkeling or scuba diving here!

Hanauma Bay operates from  6:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and entrance into the Nature Preserve costs $7.50  per person. Admission is free for children under 12, residents of  Hawaii, and those with a military ID.

The best way to explore  Hanauma Bay is by shuttle – you’ll get picked up at your hotel, taken to  the bay, and returned back to your hotel in the same day. The best  thing about it is all you have to do is sit back for the ride and have  fun!

You have lots of companies to choose from for your Hanauma  Bay shuttle. You’ll have the most options if you’re staying in Waikiki,  since most companies run shuttles from Waikiki to Hanauma Bay. Some  companies even provide snorkeling equipment! Depending on the companies  and everything that’s included in the shuttle package, you can expect to  pay between 10 to 20 dollars per person. In sometimes-pricey Hawaii,  that’s an awesome deal.

Don’t miss one of Hawaii’s most amazing places – take a shuttle to Hanauma Bay!
