Snorkeling in Kauai

The clear waters of Kauai are warm enough for everyone to enjoy the underwater world. Kauai snorkeling is full of ocean wildlife that will dazzle your eyes. Be sure to pick the right time for your snorkeling adventure, as low tide is generally the best. It is important to wear flippers or water shoes while snorkeling. You can rent flippers at the shops or buy water shoes at Kmart or Wal Mart in Lihue. Several locations are good for beginner or experienced snorkelers. Our own Poipu Beach is the best for beginners that are snorkeling in Kauai. For experienced snorkelers Ke’e or the Tunnels will be the best bet. Getting the right gear is simple with rental shops available for all your needs. You can see a sampling of what is available through our preferred providers listed below.
