Visitors to Oahu's hot snorkeling and tourist attraction Hanauma Bay can expect to pay a little extra. State officials announced a price increase from $12 to $25 to enter. Prior to the pandemic, prices were just $7.50.
For local residents, price of admission remains free. Parking for local residents remains $1 and $3 for out-of-state visitors.
As the state struggles to grip with a record number of toursts across all islands, cities and counties are taking measures to protect the islands infrastructure and natural resources.
