Swim With Sea Life In An Abandoned Harbor At Mahukona Beach In Hawaii
With warm water and islands surrounded by magnificent reef ecosystems, Hawaii is a snorkeler’s paradise and while we’re sure you’ve heard of the Aloha State’s most famous snorkeling destinations before – Hanauma Bay, Molokini Crater, and Poipu Beach, to start – the spot we’re featuring today is a little more off-the-radar.
Before we dive in, we need to issue a short warning: please remember that you are a visitor in the vast Pacific Ocean. You should never disrupt the living coral or bother sea life. Disturbing endangered animals like the Hawaiian monk seal and the honu is illegal and may result in massive fines. As always, we suggest you check out surf conditions before you make any decisions, and heed all warnings posted.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
