  • We went snorkeling looking for turtles...we did not see any turtles but saw the most fish we had ever seen even though there were a lot of people there. 
  • Perfect place for morning snorkeling. Pay attention to high and low tide times because it will make a difference on your experience. And remember to bring appropriate footwear and balancing skills getting into the ocean. You will be walking on a variety of rocks.
  • Definitely good and bad. Easily accessible area for all and crowded because of it. There are families and children everywhere. Close to shore the water seems murky. We saw fish, urchins and damaged coral. I heard turtles can be seen but we missed them. Again it's fast, easy and crowded.
  • Great snorkeling and facilities. Come early for parking spots. Species spotted: sea turtles, humu humu trigger, lavender tang, moorish idol, Achilles tang, cleaner wrasse, box fish, whiptails, naso tang, yellow tang, convict tang, lots of different types of butterfly fish, parrotfish, goatfish, dragon wrasse, orange shoulder tang, niger trigger, etc etc.
  • Very crowded, we just came and left for Hapuna Beach. The area is so cramped, it doesn't look like a beach. It may be good place for snorkeling, as we can quite a few of them in the reef area. But you have to swim/snorkel with a big crowd.
  • It's a good place for snorkeling. You can see many fishes under water. If you are lucky, you can see turtles too. The volcano rocks are sharp. Gloves, water shoes will be needed.
