SNORKELING in January: Calm winter beach on Kauai or Oahu??

Jump to last reply

Hello Hawaii lovers! Where is it calm enough for snorkeling in January, on either Kauai or Oahu? I prefer to walk into the water from a sandy beach, as opposed to having to jump into the water off of a rocky edge. We especially love to stay in an accommodation which is located right on a beach which is safe for snorkeling in January.

I should add that snorkeling isn't our only interest. We like enjoying everything that the Hawaiian islands have to offer. It's just important to us to get to snorkel at least a coupla times during our January Hawaiian vacation.

We usually do only one island at a time, and split our stay between the "sunny dry" and "wet green" sides of the island.

Since we live in San Diego, Hawaii is a short flight for us.

Thanks for any suggestions! We have been to both Big Island and Maui in recent years. Have never been to Oahu. Haven't been to Kauai for over 20 years, and last time Kaui was a summer trip for us, not a winter trip.

I'm a dreamy poet and my husband is an avid biologist, and we are both seeking inspiration. >:D<
