Hanauma Bay is Open Again

Not to worry, snorkelers, one of Hawai‘i’s most popular attractions is back open.



Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve normally opens its gates at 6 a.m., Wednesday through Monday, but the bay was closed to swimmers this morning after staff members discovered a large leak in a potable water pipe.

Luckily, workers were able to identify the source of the leak and repair it within hours, and the park resumed normal operations by 11 a.m.

For more information on Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, visit honolulu.gov/parks.html.
