Best place and Best intro to snorkeling

Posted on: 2016/05/02

Hanauma Bay is where you want to begin your snorkeling experience in Oahu. Chieko and her husband were thorough, patient, kind and professional in all aspects of this snorkel tour at Hanauma Bay. The coral has lost some its color vibrancy from the daily influx of people swimming there but the fish were plentiful and made up for the moderate deficiency. I enjoyed it enough here to come again a second time, solo. Again, great tour guides and best place to begin your snorkel adventure. Enjoy!

Hi Mel, glad you enjoyed. If you come back in winter maybe we can go way outside the reef and find some really good coral. Thanks, Dan and Chieko.

Nice!! Don't miss this one.

SANDBAR: The sandbar was a surreal experience. It was beautiful to be finally here, but like the beautiful breasts of Italian marble, there is not much one can do with the simplicity of this place, except enjoy the view. I have never been so satisfied with so little to do, but so much to visually feel.

SNORKEL: Nice experience. More fish to see than Kailua Beach area, but less fish than Hanauma Bay.

BOAT and RIDE: Nice vessel. Clean. A little crowded, but I enjoyed the variety of different cultures, their languages and behavior.

Tour Staff: They were friendly, experienced, and kept us safe.

Overall Experience: Very positive and I would recommend this tour.

Solo with my equipment at Kailua Beach

Posted on: 2016/04/29

Fantastic place to swim, snorkel and meet the locals. If you do not have your own snorkel equipment, need a ride to and from this area and a good lunch, then this is a decent deal. However, I had my own equipment and in hindsight I wished I had rented a car (same cost) for travel to Kailua Beach. The beach is free, could have stayed till sunset (instead of 2:30 pm), explore the nightlife, and dined here instead of my expensive tourist trap in Waikiki. Learn from my experience, but come here for a great beach experience.
