Enter the magical world of under the ocean this vacation by booking a snorkeling vacation to Hawaii. You’re likely to find plenty of fascinating marine life wherever you go, so the opportunities for snorkeling are almost endless.
But if you’re serious about finding the best places to snorkel in Hawaii, we’ve assembled a few of the top places to go.
Snorkel in a crater
The tiny island of Molokini lies 25 miles off the south coast of Maui. It is actually a volcanic crater that has become partially submerged. The variety of marine life to be seen in this marvel of a snorkeling destination has to be seen to be believed.
Snorkel with sharks
Take a trip to Shark’s Cove in Oahu if you’re the brave kind. Fins are advised, and beginners are discouraged from trying this spot because of strong currents.
Tunnel’s Beach is a hidden wonder that’s a little bit of a secret, but it offers some of Kauai Island’s best snorkeling. If you dive down a bit, you’ll also discover fascinating underwater caverns.
Snorkel a nature preserve
Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve is one of the greatest snorkeling destinations Hawaii has to offer. The pristine waters ensure the adventure of a lifetime. Get there at high tide to avoid injuring yourself on the coral that is exposed at low tide.
