Snorkeling in Moloka‘i



More Sports and Activities

During the times when swimming is safe—mainly in summer—just about every beach on Molokai offers good snorkeling along the lava outcroppings in the island's clean and pristine waters. Rough in winter, Kepuhi Beach is a prime spot in summer. Certain spots inside the South Shore Reef are also worth checking out.

Equipment and Tours

Rent snorkel sets from either Molokai Outdoors or Molokai Fish and Dive in Kaunakakai. Rental fees are nominal—$6 to $10 a day. All the charter boats carry snorkel gear and include dive stops.

Fun Hogs Sportfishing. Mike Holmes, captain of the 27-foot Ahi, knows the island waters intimately, likes to have fun, and is willing to arrange any type of excursion—for example, one dedicated entirely to snorkeling. His two-hour snorkel trips leave early in the morning and explore rarely seen fish and turtle sites outside the reef. Bring your own food and drinks; the trips cost $70 per person. Kaunakakai Wharf, Kaunakakai Pl., Kaunakakai, HI, 96748. 808/567–6789 or 808/336–0047.
