  • If you are going in the water that may make this a 5 but if you stay on land the path down to the water is all volcanic as is the trail. You need good shoes so that you don't mess up your feet. There....  more »

  • Great snorkeling here. Beautiful fish within just a few feet of the shore. Entry can be tricky, since there is no beach; just rocks. We chose to keep our shoes on, rather than using fins. Next time...  more »

  • What a great place to snorkel and see lots of sea life. We got here around 6:30 AM and we had the place to ourselves. Lots of sleeping turtles and colorful fish all around. Be careful walking on the trail since the rocks easily shift.
  • Still closed for sharks unfortunately, still giving it 5 stars as it's like an aquarium when it's safe to be in the water.
  • One of our favorite snorkel spots on Maui. Closed on both of our visits this week, 5/2 &4/30. Apparently for Tiger sharks feeding on reef shark pups in the area but no updates available since late April sightings. Difficult to contact for updates, lose one star.
  • Looked beautiful, but CURRENTLY CLOSED DUE TO SHARKS. Check that it is open before you make the drive.
  • Beautiful! Make sure you wear eco friendly sun tan lotion so it protects the reefs. There are cameras in the parking lot for added security and we were met with a very friendly and knowledgeable volunteer who had maps.
