Snorkeling Alone

Jump to last reply

Taking my first trip to Maui early Sept and can't wait to swim with the fishes!

I have snorkeled many times in the Caribbean but never in Hawaii so I'm not sure how the water conditions will be different.

Here's my dilemma: I am traveling alone and like to snorkel several times a day. Budgetary constraints do not permit me to go on guided snorkel trips that frequently.

I would be totally comfortable snorkeling alone but don't want to do so at beaches known to have funky currents or conditions that would make that a foolish thing to do.

I know, snorkeling alone is never ideal but I don't feel I have many other options.

1. Does anyone know of any beaches that I should for sure avoid snorkeling alone?
2. I do plan to splurge on 1 snorkel trip to Molokini - any operators to avoid? Any that are highly recommended?

Thanks in advance for your help!
