    I was unable to get tickets online no matter how hard I tried, so I gave up. We went on a drive and happened to pass by and saw a sign that said “parking passes available” and went in. I was given two tickets and was immediately able to go in. I didn’t mind the cost and parking was free. I didn’t mind watching the video. It wasn’t too crowded and the snorkeling was amazing! You can’t snorkel and see much if you only go in up to your waist as there either isn’t much to see and/or the water is cloudy from the waves. If you venture out, you will see amazing fish and coral. We were shocked at how clear everything was! Two hours was as long as we could handle the sun, but that was plenty long enough. We were there from 10:00 AM to noon. I HIGHLY recommend this place!

    The Lagoon was a short walk from the Grand Waikikian. There is generally plenty of room on the beach. The sand is quite clean, and does not have pebbles or coral or shell bits. The water temperature is cooler than the ocean. Swimming is easier than in crowded pool or ocean currents. The Lagoon changes dramatically in size, shrinking and expanding, during the day. The Lagoon rental booth has aqua bikes to rent for a trip around the
    Lagoon- which is fun for an hour! The fellows at the Lagoon rental booth are just plain rude to customers, who are Hilton guests, by the way.

    The canal give you a break from the big city and you get a view of the water and mountains. Night time give you the lights reflecting on the water. Nice place to get away from the crowds on the beach.

    There was nothing special about this lake except its tremendous size. The boundaries of the lake were covered with inpenetrable growth of bushes, weeds and climbers.
