Fantastic experience for our kiddos

Our guide Fumio was great! She guided our two kids snorkeling for the first time and they really enjoyed it. She had everything prepared for us at Hanauma Bay so once we arrived we changed into our gears quickly and headed for snorkeling.

Worth it!

Jun 2023 • Friends

Wonderful! Definitely worth the extra money for a guided tour. We explored parts of the reef that I never would have had the confidence to swim to and our guide knew exactly where to see a variety of fish. She took the guess work and uncertainty out of the experience so we could just enjoy! Best part is that she took tons of pictures too. Great experience!
