The snorkeling here is great...especially if you go out by the tube that discharges the warm water. If you're early enough (try 7AMish), you can sometimes catch a pod of dolphins while you snorkel. Turtles are common and on a rare occasions, you might see...More

For some reason this place has a lot of dolphins and other ocean creatures that you will not see in other parts of the island, they say it's the electric pumps located nearby. The place looks to be visited mostly by locals and some people...More

Staying on the West Side of Oahu and being on island for only two days, we didn't have time to get to Hanauma Bay, where the best snorkeling is. Kahe Point (Electric Beach) is a fine substitute, and there is no entry fee. Don't leave...More

Not as good as Hanauma Bay but an excellent spot to snorkel on the west side. Beautiful sea life, gorgeous beach and lots of sunshine on the west side. Worth the drive no matter where you are staying on Oahu.

Kahe Point used to be called "Brown's Point" in the 1960's. Some people call the Kahe Point beach "Electric Beach" because of the water discharge that comes from the power plant across the highway. Bring your own food and beverages. This park has a restroom...More

I was wary of going to this beach because of warnings of current, breaking waves and sharks. Even during winter which is surf season it was reasonably calm. Obviously there are breaking waves on the beach but they are nothing to be afraid of. As...More

We stopped here in the morning & saw snorkelers out in front of power plant. We should have snorkeled then because it was so calm. This was the only place on Oahu that I saw turtles from the shore. We were standing at edge of...More

We rode our rental bike out from Honolulu, the trip was worth every minute. From the minute we entered the water snorkeling we knew we were in the right place. Fish, coral, sea turtles and finally a seal! It is NOT for beginners. It's choppy...More

Need to be a strong swimmer here for entry and exit. I wouldn't suggest for smaller keiki - deep water and strong surf near the rocks and the electric company wall. But wow - the turtles! We swam for maybe 20-30 minutes seeing loads of...More
