Be forewarned- they close access with the slightest bit of surf. Irregardless of reservations , driving all the way across the island; you’re out of luck. Full review by jay p

If you want to wait in a long ridiculous line and pay admission… go for it. There are a number of better places to snorkel. Stay away Full review by Jeff B

Just call the park--or book online-- and set up your reservations directly with them, and add on the transportation package. Remember the 6 am time gives you the best water visibility so its worth the early morning start :)

Q:
I see people saying an online reservation is absolutely required and sells out in 10 minutes and I see people saying they bought their ticket at the gate. I'm planning a trip for May 2023. What's the current best way to get a ticket?
A:
It was quite difficult to get a ticket, if I remember correctly they release the tickets @ 7AM, two days in advance? That is what we did, I have no idea about purchasing at the gate? good luck!

Q:
I tried for 50 mins starting at 7 am but the website said always DISMISS, limit the 6 members even though I checked for 2 people, or all tickets sold out at the last stage. It is so annoying actually. Any problem with the website or any cautions I should know?
A:
Be sure to login a few minutes before it opens at 7 am and be quick to complete your transaction. Last time it only took 10 minutes to sold out.
