Waikiki is a Marine Life Conservation District
Many of Hawaii's visitors are familiar with the Hanauma Bay Marine Life Conservation District but most don't realize the east end of Waikiki is also a state-designated marine protected area. The Waikiki Marine Life Conservation District was established by the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources in 1988. It is about 76 acres in size and it is bounded by the west by the Kapahulu Groin and on the east by the western-most wall of the Waikiki War Memorial Natatorium. The protected area extends from the highwater mark on the beach to about 500 yards out to sea. Fishing or collecting any type of sealife is prohibited in this area. Swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and underwater photography are allowed but great care must be taken not to disturb the coral and underwater geological features in this area.
