I went here to snorkel with friends while vacationing in Hawaii for the first time. The snorkeling was ok, but not great. I would reccommend it for those who have never done it before because it's fun and safe there. They run it well and make sure you know what you are looking at. Life guards are on duty and respond quickly if needed. While I was there two people got swept out a little too far and were quickly rescued. As long as you listen to the guards you will have no problems, if you go where they say to stay away from then you might need rescued too. Lots of colorful fish to see, and I even saw a turtle. A little too crowded for my taste though.
