Our guide was amazing and very informational and patient. We went the weekend after Labor Day (the end of the busy season I hear) so my wife and I were the only ones; we received pretty much a personalized snorkeling tour!
This is the perfect guided ocean adventure for all ages and all levels of experience - from non-swimmers to experienced divers - who want to learn about Kauai's marine environment from expert guides.
Includes transportation from most hotels, use of top-quality equipment including wetsuits and optical masks, thorough instruction and tour with expert guides, discussion of relevant marine biology, and of course a delicious lunch.
The first snorkel spot is usually at Lawai Beach. The reef is about 50 yards from shore and the water inside the reef is about 8-10 feet deep. You'll spend most of the time on this first snorkel hovering over the reef in just a few feet of water. There is a great variety of species here including, butterfly fishes, tangs, sturgeonfish, wrasses, and puffers. You are in the water for up to 45 minutes before taking a break. Nervous about snorkeling? The tour assistants have large, soft surfboards with handles around the edges.
After everyone is refreshed, those who are comfortable with a slightly more advanced snorkel are taken to the second area to see the pacific green sea turtles. The tour is video taped and you will have the option of purchasing a copy!
