  1. Recall going to Hanauma Bay during my time on Oahu (1979 to 1981) and enjoying being able to scuba, or snorkel with friends. Hanauma Bay was beautiful back then, and hopefully is still very much so today. Personally do not agree to the high fees charged to visit such a beautiful environment, though fully agree with the need to protect and save this small environment for future generations. Such is necessary now days with so many choosing to ignore proper care and respect for all natural wonders. Mahalo for sharing this update.

  2. Thanks for this article about Hanauma Bay…question reqarding those with disabilities: Are those with physical limitations as far as walking is concerned – can these individuals receive any assistance getting
    to the Bay after viewing the educational film, etc?

    Mahalo for your reply,
