…If you come to Honolulu and wanted to go snorkeling in Hanauma Bay, go with them! Even if you have a car!
For a low fee, you get pick-up service from one of the many pick up locations and drop off at Hanauma Bay’s parking lot, snorkeling equipment rental, and drop back off at the pick up location at the end of your trip. No dealing with heavy traffic, no dealing with full parking lots, no muss, no fuss…
I had a great experience…. I really appreciated our driver, Carl, and the time he took to make sure everyone was up to speed on the snorkel gear as well as getting around the bay
I also appreciate that he took the time to point out a few points of interest on the ride to and from the bay
If you enjoy getting in the ocean, and seeing it’s beauty, this is by far the best bargain on the island!
Great service. Great gear. Awesome value…
Carl and Isaac were our drivers. Both great company and gave us a little history on the drive.
…By far the best money spent on our trip!
…I believe from pick up to drop off time is about 3 hrs? It’s the perfect amount of time to walk down to the bay, go through the video, and still have the chance to hang out on the beach and snorkel around the bay. I like how the snorkel gear they provided was the kind that stopped water from coming in through the snorkel tube so you don’t swallow any water. Definitely helpful since I have a tendency to go in deeper than I should and than swallow a bunch of ocean water!
Very helpful and excellent value

Our pick up was very punctual, we were given a great introduction to snorkelling (which is very necessary for any first-time snorkelers) which explained all of the equipment as well as some very helpful tips which proved invaluable.
We were also given information about Hanuama Bay itself. If you wanted to hire the same snorkel gear at the Bay, it’s $20 so the price we paid ($22) was excellent value for a prompt taxi (which was only 8 seater, so not many pickups) including all the necessary gear and great pre-snorkelling information. I’d highly recommend for all first-time snorkelers.

Excellent customer experience!

I booked an Hanauma Bay excursion directly with the owner, Rachel. I got her phone number from the yellow Snorkelfest flyer. She was excellent in setting up our excursion (my oldest son, grandson, and me) and was very helpful and flexible in everything that she did. I had the immediate sense that she was a) professional and b) committed to making sure that her customers were well taken care of.
The driver (Sam) showed up right on time this morning and the 20-30 minute drive to Hanauma was a delightful ride with Sam giving an excellent briefing and training on the equipment. He also went out of his way to ensure that all seven of the customers were acquainted with one another. Great driver, great personality, and, as with Rachel, committed to making our experience a great one.
Excellent experience all around and outstanding value!
I would -definitely- use Snorkelfest again.
Excellent service and experience< Reviewed January 12, 2015 The night before I went on line to book - it was easy. Our driver (Sam) was on time, friendly and very informative. He prepared us well for our 2 hours at Hanauma Bay. I was concerned with the limited time, but it was perfect time to see everything we wanted to see. I recommend taking the earliest time slot - it was not too crowded and easy to navigate the waters. We were given dry snorkel gear which some places charge extra for. Thank you Snorkelfest for a great adventure.
