This time in Honolulu my parents and I wanted to do some snorkelling. We heard the best place to do it was Hanauma Bay.
Hanauma Bay used to be volcano, now it is filled with coral reefs perfect for snorkelling.
Before entering the park you must watch an educational video about the park and the marine system. A lot of damage was done to the reefs in the past by tourists standing on the coral. Now it is prohibited to stand or touch any of the reefs.
My family booked an excursion with a private company which provided us with transportation to and from the park, along with our snorkelling gear. If you want you could take the city bus there, bring your equipment or rent some from the park. Just depends on your budget and how much time you have.
I could have spent the whole day there, swimming with the fishies and lounging under the palm trees.
Hanauma Bay is a must if you are ever on the island of Oahu.
