We have snorkeled in the caribbean but would not consider us anything more than beginners. We are staying in waikoloa area beginning of Dec. I understand that mauna lani beach might be a good snorkeling beach for beginners. Any other beaches in kohala area would be considered suitable for beginners and provide colorful coral, fish, turtles etc?
I also found some info about various snorkeling boat trips that take you further into the ocean. One that we were considering is Seaquest which has good reviews. What would the experts think about their early morning 4 hr snorkel cruise that visits 2 areas? Is it worthwhile to take the snorkle cruise?
