These 14 Phenomenal Snorkeling Destinations In Hawaii Will Blow You Away

Snorkeling is perhaps the most popular – and quintessential – Hawaiian activity. With warm water and islands surrounded by magnificent reef ecosystems, Hawaii is a snorkeler’s paradise, and these 14 destinations are among the state’s best.

Please remember that you are a visitor in the vast Pacific Ocean; you should never disrupt the living coral, or bother the 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 head warnings posted at these popular spots.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:
