Exploring Hawaii’s Underwater World
The diverse landscape of Hawaii doesn’t stop on land. Beneath the surface of the ocean is a world that thrives, with incredible formations and marine life that thrives. The beautiful colors of the fish and unique species of fish help to make Hawaii special and seeing the beauty of the ocean is a treat that visitors to Hawaii must take in.
Some of the best snorkeling in the world is right here in Hawaii, and each island has it’s destinations that snorkelers flock to. From Hanauma Bay on Oahu to Maui’s Turtle Arches, and the Na Pali Coast on Kauai, there really is something special about exploring the underwater world of Hawaii.
Snorkeling is one of the most sought after activities in Hawaii and is a great option for all ages. Tours depart daily and head to the best spots on each island. In most cases, snorkelers board a boat and head to a part of the island that is not easily accessible, so docking near the snorkel spot is a must. Protected coves and islets provide the best places for snorkeling because the calm waters make conditions ideal and make skimming the surface easy. From the top of the water, colorful fish and rock formations make for incredible viewing.
Oahu’s best snorkel spot is Hanauma Bay. This protected bay is on Oahu’s South Shore, and unlike the other top spots around the islands, snorkelers enter the water from the shore. The reef is located a short swim from the sand, and almost immediately, the marine life that live inside the bay begin to welcome their visitors. Many different species of fish call Hanauma Bay home, and watching them swim freely and hide in the rocks is an amazing experience.
Exploring Hawaii’s underwater world is a great option for all ages, and being out in the open ocean is always amazing. The beauty of the ocean, stunning fish, and exploring the unknown helps to show off the diversity of Hawaii and the unique landscapes that make up the islands.
