Ask the Big Kahuna "Answering the most common visitor questions"
Response:Aloha Tom -
Oh yes, my returning friend. Great things have been done to restore Hanauma Bay. The Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve has reduced the number of visitors, established an education program, and instituted supportive restrictions, all in the efforts to make the bay a pristine marine ecosystem. This improvement has created some amazing snokeling opportunities. In fact, not only can you snorkel and swim, but also you can get insights from volunteers in kiosks to help you identify what you saw in the water!
The Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is still a great place to swim and you might even enjoy the experience more this time around with the deeper insights offered. Be sure to visit the education center to get an in-depth look at the bay.
Happy Snorkeling, Tom!
