Hanauma Bay

Perhaps one of Oahu’s most visited tourist destinations is Hanauma Bay State Park, and rightfully so – it is one of the island’s premier spots if you want to experience Hawaii’s beautiful sea life by way of snorkeling. Swim amongst the coral reef, vibrantly colored fish, and even honu (green sea turtles!)

Admission to the state park is $7.50, and does not include the $1/car parking fee. The admission fee is waived for Kama’aina, active duty military and children under 12 years of age, as well as if you enter the park after 4 p.m. Visitors are also required to watch a short video about marine life conservation before entering the park and heading into the water – however, you do not need to watch the video every time you visit.
