Snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Kauai is an exhilarating experience that will leave the swimmer spellbound for life. No prior experience is necessary for snorkeling, and anyone can do it. Trained instructors are available on every tour. These tour operators provide the equipment for snorkeling and make it the adventure of a lifetime.
Snorkeling is a sport that allows the swimmer to view marine life just below the surface of the water for long, relaxing hours. Tourists can swim beneath the surface of water and watch various breathtaking scenes. Swimmers need not have to surface for air, and the view can be so captivating that a person can forget to turn back. Marine life at a place like Kauai is used to the occasional swimmer. Most swimmers find it satisfying as the fish is not scared away.
Most often the highlight of the vacation for a tourist is snorkeling. Kauai offers a wide range of locations for the sport. Some of the best places to snorkel are reefs off Kee Beach and Haena Beach Park. These places offer great guided tours for snorkeling and provide equipment as well. Tunnels Beach in Haena has a wide reef area with a wide variety of underwater flora and fauna. It is important to check ocean conditions before driving there. Tourists are advised to stay away if the surf is up or if there are strong ocean currents. Expert divers, too, find it hard to navigate these oceans when they are inhospitable to swimmers. Anini Beach, on the North Shore, is perfect for beginners. This beach has a safe and shallow area for snorkeling.
Finally, the great Poipu Beach Park has some good snorkeling to offer. The tombolo area is a safe and quiet place that provides expert guides and appropriate equipment. This beach has a narrow bar of sand dividing the ocean and offers excellent snorkeling with bountiful marine life in a protected cove.
