Community Events Calendar
Presentations take place in the Education Center Alcove of the Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, beginning at 3:00 p.m. every Sunday afternoon. For directions click here.
Public parking is $1.00/vehicle. Admittance to the lecture presentation will begin at 2:45 p.m. outside the entrance to the Education Center by the benches. Those who are attending the lecture presentation ONLY and are admitted at this time by the Education staff will bypass the admission window. Please do not arrive earlier than 2:45 p.m. Patrons attending ONLY the Educational Lecture will be given a special red "Hawaii Sea Grant" hand stamp that will allow access into the education alcove for the lecture but no access to the beach itself. The lecture will begin promptly at 3 p.m.
Please note: anyone who wishes to go to the beach before the lecture, will be processed through the regular admission line and shall pay the admission fee of $7.50 (if you are not a Hawaii resident). These education programs are supported and funded by the City and County of Honolulu Department of Parks and Recreation.
We appreciate your continuing interest and support!
