    Fabulous snorkeling, some of the best in all Hawaii. Way better than Molokini off Maui. Hike in or take a snorkel boat, it's all good. Protected bay, usually calm conditions...Today was perfect!

    The snorkeling was awesome! So many fish. It was crowded at first, around noon, but then the tour boats left and we were practically alone.

    Amazing coral and diversity of fish. A great hike and an underwater arch for added adventuring. We hoped to see dolphins, but saw many fish, so it was fantastic!
