Snorkel at Electric Beach

Honolulu County, Hawaii

based on 2 reviews


Added by Katie woodfin

Great chance to swim and see fish close to Honolulu.

The beach might not be very big but fortunately the Ocean has plenty of space. This is an awesome snorkeling spot. You can see tons of fish. The electric company right across the street has a large pipe that runs into the ocean and releases a heavy amount of hot water. This causes many fish to come to the area. The released water is also fun to play in (swim in front of it and it will push you about 20 feet away in no time).

Please be respectful of all the wildlife. Take pictures, but please don't touch!

Snorkel at Electric Beach Reviews

Thought it was named because of jelly fish but it's just the power plant. Fun snorkel spot although the beach is tiny.

Electric beach is a really fun spot to snorkel on the west side of Oahu. It gets its name from the power plant in the area.
