Big Island, as the name suggests, is the biggest island in the Hawaiian chain. It's not just big in size but offers a staggering variety of sights and activities to enjoy.
Here is a list of Big Island’s best snorkeling spots and a few secret snorkel spots on Big Island.
If you’re visiting with kids, there’s a protected area on the left of the bay for safe splashing. Make sure to get there early as the parking can fill up fast.
The warm, clear, and calm waters here ensure some of the best snorkeling in Kona. It’s also Big Island’s only underwater state park.
Ideal for first-time snorkelers and families, this snorkel spot has picnic tables and gear rentals, and a lifeguard on duty.
If you swim out a little further, visibility improves. There are more coral and larger schools of fish a little further out.
