Absolutely my favorite place in all HI.
Easy and amazing snorkeling. You can even see fishes from the shore, before diving in. Many corals and various fishes, event a yellow trumpet fish and, most of all, turtles. You can observe them very often swimming in...More
We've snorkeled all over Maui, Oahu, Kauai, and the Big Island, and this is definitely our favorite. Fish and turtles everywhere. Even saw a few reef sharks and swam with about 50 spinner dolphins. Looking at the water, swim towards the left and follow the...More
This popular site has both live and dead coral that provides abundant fish and color for snorkeling. It is quite expansive for those who dare to swim out and dive down. I saw lots of yellow tang, Threadfin butterfly fish, Picasso Triggerfish, and Moorish Idol...More
While in Kona there are a number of places that you can snorkel, Honaunau Bay (Two Step) rates very highly, as it should. It is a short drive (30 min) from the Kona area and the parking is free (if you can find a spot...More
This was one of our favorite places to snorkel at. They day we went was cloudy on our drive over but as soon as we got to the beach it was sunny, so bring sunblock. We were able to see all kinds of fishes and...More
We saw two turtles just hanging out in the tide pools and even got to see one renter the ocean. It is not hard to figure out where to enter because everyone going in the same place. Wait for the tide swell to aid entering...More
We stayed at Two Step Beach House (Hale Maka I'O) and it was amazing. 100m from the protected canoe-landing beach which was perfect for our 6 year old daughter to play in, and right beside the best snorkeling we encountered on our trip. My 12...More
This is a great place to snorkel and sometimes, if your lucky, snorkel with dolphins. There are turtles here at times and lots of fish. There is no real sand beach just a bunch of lava, not difficult to navigate. Just take two steps and...More
This place was better than I thought it would be. The statues are cool, but the tide pools to me and our family (especially the younger kids) were really great with Green Sea Turtles, little hermit crabs, etc.
I have lived 3 miles away for over 3 years and I go for a snorkel almost every day. The ocean can get angry any time of year but November is not yet winter and should be fine. I have never found the need to wear a wetsuit... More
I have lived 3 miles away for over 3 years and I go for a snorkel almost every day. The ocean can get angry any time of year but November is not yet winter and should be fine. I have never found the need to wear a wetsuit ever and the tide is more tom watch than time of day. Low tide can make it hard to get out of the water. I always tell people you can get into the water anywhere but get out only at the 2-step, where the wave action will set you right up onto a step. Watch others to find the right place.
