I have snorkeled all over the world, and would put this spot near the top of my list because of the wide diversity of sea life and the terrific info site sponsored by the Pacific Whale Foundation.
We saw turtles, manta rays, eels, starfish, and even a devil scorpionfish! I was able to identify the latter because Amber, a Pacific Whale employee, had a table set up on the beach with pictures, books and loads of information on Hawaiian sea life. If you could describe what you saw, Amber could tell you what it was, and had lots of information to share. She had a white board display and listed the fish and sea life that snorkelers and divers reported seeing, which gives you an idea of what to look for.
As you face the water, I found the best snorkeling to the right. Head well out and work around the reef. The left side of the beach had lower visability when I was there, but I was told there are often more turtles on that side.
