Recently my fellow Disney Parks Blog author, Erin Glover, went under the sea in Rainbow Reef at Aulani, a Disney Resort & Spa, to try the Supplied Air Snorkeling (S.A.S.) experience. Today, I invite you to visit the only private snorkeling lagoon on O`ahu again, but this time from the point of view of one of the nearly 50 different types of sea life that live in the reef!

I also want to pass along this helpful tip I learned about Rainbow Reef: You can purchase a one-day experience or, if your ‘ohana wants to explore the lagoon throughout your vacation, a length-of-stay experience is also available.

And here’s a bit of trivia for you … at one point in the video above, we spot the state fish of Hawai`i. Do you know its Hawaiian name? Leave your answers in the “Comments” section!


  • Is it bad that I only know this from the Pineapple Princess Tiki song? Humuhumunukunukuapua’a!

  • I’m a resident so it’d be unfair if I answer. Instead, I’ll give the English name: Trigger fish. 😀

  • Humuhumunukunukuapuaa!

    • That’s correct, Janice! The state fish of Hawai’i is the Reef triggerfish, or known by it’s Hawaiian name, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a!
