We saw so many fish and a sea turtle while snorkeling here! Beautiful surroundings and tram to take you back up the hill was a plus. I recommend this trip for people of all ages. Restrooms on site were also clean. Worth the $7.50 to get in.

During my vacation in Hawaii, my son and I went here to snorkel. What a great experience. They have the equipment rental right there on the beach. We actually swam with Sea Turtles. It is a beautiful place.

Spent the afternoon snorkelling with my husband & 10 year old. We saw plenty of fish. I thought for the $7.50 entry that could have included the trolley back up the hill. I didn’t mind walking at all, however my mother in law and 4 year old paid for it.

Great experience. Once you through the video and the line to get access. Take the transportation, we paid $2.50 per personfor all day transport both up and down the hill - well worth it. Something they didn't mention but a local did. Use sunscreen that is Ocean safe, Reef Friendly only. Its safe for the fish and for you. Family saw lots of fish, snorkel gear was good, recommend the water stopper for the top of the snorkel. Plenty of space to sit, some shade spots as well. Great experience and beautiful location.
