This came up in another forum post, but I didn't want to "jack" that post. It was mentioned that Manele Bay isn't that great in summer because of the summer swells. I understand the change of the swells etc....I've been to Maui and Kauai the last 4 summers. I also know it can't be predicted...but how often is it that bad that you can't snorkel? I am asking because I am bringing family to Hawaii this summer who have never been. I thought it may be good to bring them over for a couple nights because they also love to snorkel. I have come on the Trilogy the last 4 years and not once were we not able to snorkel and we pre-book before we come. I am just wondering if we have been extremely lucky or if it typically is only a few days that you can't snorkel. Just trying to figure out what we want to do...we could do Trilogy, but I thought more time might be nice to see the rest of the sland. Snorkeling is very important to us though.
Thanks in advance!
