Can you think of a better place to spend a snorkeling trip than in Hawaii? Hawaii snorkeling offers the best in clear waters, exotic aquatic life, and great beaches, temperatures, and underwater “terrain.”
Hawaii snorkeling is popular year round, thanks to Hawaii’s mild climate. Some of the best places to snorkel in Hawaii include:
Oahu: Hawaii snorkeling at its finest
Oahu offers the wonderful opportunity to see the green sea turtles. As you snorkel in the midst of the corral reef areas, these turtles can be seen all over the place. The area is both safe for people, as well as turtles. “Hale O Honu (Hawaiian for "turtle town") is a snorkel area easily accessible for all ages and abilities. The boat is anchored to a buoy (to protect the reefs), making access from the patented staircase-type ladder and return to the boat a breeze. Exceptional visibility and richness of slow-moving marine life ensures a good time for all. Even non-swimmers can participate, as flotation devices and snorkel equipment is supplied,” reports Wildside Surfari Tours.
