  • 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.
  • BEAUTIFUL area with great colors of sand and water. I mean... they named a beer after it because of its awesomeness
  • Great snorkle, gorgeous rock wall back drop. Long hike in and out. Bring hiking backpack, snacks and water.
  • 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!
