There are 2 reasons for buying this ticket.1. You need transportation and snorkel equipment for Hanauma Bay.2. You aren't able to prebook reservations and you want the tour to get you into the park. However, you will still need to pay the $25 entrance fee.

Cousin mark was our driver and he was amazing! He even stopped on the way so we can watch the sunrise from the blowhole. He had all of our equipment ready for us as well. We will definitely be doing this again!

We arrived before the gate was open so the driver took us to the Halona blowhole for sunrise. It was an unexpected surprise we enjoyed. The early morning snorkelling experience was wonderful. We saw a wide variety of beautiful fish and other sea life easily accessible even close to the shore. The bay itself is lovely with its azure waters. We had a great time, would go again, and would highly recommend the experience.

We had our Hanauma Bay Snorkeling tour with Cousin Mark and had a wonderful time. Using this method of transportation over to Hanauma Bay was very easy, with pickup near our hotel. Doing it this way, helped us to avoid the crazy website lottery of trying to get tickets online...also, we were able to avoid the long lines and did walk up tickets. Mark was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting things on our drive over to Hanauma Bay. We also did the package to rent chairs/umbrella and a GoPro camera with SD card. All items were clean, well maintained and in good working order. Would definitely recommend for anyone going to Hanauma Bay.

I was late after being overserved the night before (lol), and they were fantastic. I ended up driving there, but they still met me to give me my gear and were super chill despite me being an idiot. It was a little long for my liking only because I am not a sit on the beach kind of person. I rented a noodle thinking that I could chill and relax when I wasn’t actively snorkeling, but there are reefs everywhere, so that really isn’t an option. That was no fault of theirs, though. They were amazing!

This was great from start to finish. I was picked up right on time. The driver was friendly and funny and got us where we needed to go safely. We arrived at the bay early and he got us in as soon as it opened. The snorkeling itself was awesome and absolutely worth it. Great water clarity and saw so many fish and a huge eel. I had plenty of time to snorkel before leaving. Again I was picked up when promised. Trying to get tickets to Hanauma on your own is difficult, they are only sold 48 hours in advance and they sell out in minutes. With this tour, you don't have the stress of trying to get tickets and find parking once you get there.
