Customer Review – Robert

…I used the book exclusively and pretty much as a bible/guide. I read the book very carefully and really appreciated all of the information about directions, locations, expectations and safety…

If you are interested in having a good set of snorkeling experiences this book will offer just that. From the very basic beginner level to a more advanced level. It’s all here. Great maps, diagrams and descriptions. All were accurate and therefore helpful.

Good job and thanks Galen and Nicole…. I will use your book on Maui for the next trip.

Customer Review – Todd

My wife and I just returned from our first trip to Kauai. We experienced our first snorkeling adventures on our trip and I want to thank you for all the great information on this website and in your eBook I purchased. We started preparing for our trip several months in advance and your advice on gear, sunscreens etc… was a tremendous help. The information in your eBook was extremely helpful in deciding the best locations for us to snorkel (and even where to park!). Thanks again and we are looking forward to our next snorkeling adventure!

Little Details Make a Big Difference When Snorkeling Kauai

What about when it is dumping rain where you want to snorkel? Because it will. Did you know that in some seasons the waves are way too big for snorkeling? Where do you go?

Because Kauai has more rain, and most of the snorkel spots are exposed to the trade winds, knowing all your options is very important so that you can snorkel as much as you want without disappointment. 

Kauai is also more dangerous than the other Hawaiian Islands, with strong currents in some areas that you need to know about.

In the Kauai Snorkeling Guide we tell you where to snorkel with all of these fish.

Customer Review – Charley

There’s not a wasted word in the Kauai Snorkeling Guide. It provides the precise information required to determine a destination….how to find it… how to enter the water…. and where in the bay or area to find the fish.

Information like you’ve provided on currents in the Kauai guide can avert potentially serious situations and is deeply appreciated as we always take our grandsons on our trips. The knowledge that it’s a good idea to be at Hideaways Beach by 8am if you want a space to park is instrumental to avoiding a potentially frustrating and annoying situation… and helps you enjoy your trip so much more.

I could go on and on but… bottom line… your guides are the Bible for snorkelers. I greatly appreciate your efforts in making them available.

Freedom to Be Your Own Guide – Save Money on Boat Tours

The vast majority of the best snorkeling spots on Kauai are accessible from shore. That means you don’t have to go on crowded boat tours on their schedule, to spots you can’t control, no matter the weather. Your snorkeling will be better and you will save money in the process. Where boat tours are a good idea, like on the Na Pali Coast, we recommend them.
