Explore Hawaii's Underwater World

On Molokai

With 1,200 miles of coral reef fringing the Hawaiian Islands, snorkeling and scuba diving are two of the island's most popular water activities. The South Shore of Molokai is home to Hawaii’s longest barrier reef. At 28 miles, these lush underwater gardens are teeming with green sea turtles, spotted eagle rays and a variety of tropical fish.

On Oahu

Don’t let the name scare you away from Shark’s Cove on the North Shore of Oahu—this rocky bay with clear, shallow waters is one of the top snorkeling and shore-diving locales in the world (and no, sharks aren’t common here).

On Kauai 

Lydgate Beach Park is protected by a rock barrier, making its calm waters perfect for keiki (kids). 

On Maui

World-class snorkeling and diving can be found just off the shore of Maui at Molokini Crater, where crystal-clear waters support an exceptional diversity of marine life.

On Lanai 

The tide pools near Hulopoe Bay are your best bet for snorkeling, while the lava caverns of Lanai Cathedrals are a spectacular destination for a boat dive.  

On the Island of Hawaii

With more miles of coastline than any other Hawaiian Island, the island of Hawaii is a haven for marine life. Locals and visitors alike flock to the gentle shores of Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau Bay on the Kona Coast.
