10 Best Snorkeling Spots In Hawaii

Dive into these shimmering coves and vibrant reefs trimming the Hawaiian isles for Technicolor displays of tropical fish and other marine life. For best conditions, head out in the morning before trade winds kick in, and remember than any beach on an island’s north shore may have rougher conditions and less clarity in winter. Wherever you go, look but don’t touch; coral reefs are beautiful, but fragile.

  1. I've snorkeled at a few of these sites in Hawaii and I must say that I agree with the write up on Hanauma Bay. If it is a calm day and you are a good swimmer heading out to the outer reef offers some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii. I hear alot about how the inner reef is crowded and the reef is dead but if you swim out a little farther the coral is alive and the fish are everywhere!
