Shore diving at Hanauma Bay is the only way to see this amazing reef as state laws prohibit any boats from entering the bay. Diver's will get a safety briefing, get fitting into the gear and ride the tram down to the beach. We generally snorkel out through the shallow inner reef to save our air for a long dive. Maximum depth for the dive is approximately 40 feet (12 meters) making it a great experience for certified divers of all levels.
