kauai | Snorkeling

By far one of the most popular and unforgettable attractions on Kauai is snorkeling. Few things in life compare to drifting effortlessly among a school of brightly colored tropical fish in the clear, warm seas of Kauai, which are among Hawaii's finest waters.

The best snorkeling on Kauai is usually found inside the island's many protected lagoons. Coral reefs on Kauai, Hawaii are home to hundreds of species of fish, one third of which are found nowhere else in the world. Since Kauai is millions of years older than the other inhabited islands in the Hawaiian island chain, Kauai has by far the most protective reef lagoons and therefore some of Hawaii's best snorkel spots.

Our caring crew will assist and instruct you in snorkeling; relax, float, and watch the comings and goings of the Aquatic world. No other place in Hawaii offers you such unique formations.
