With visibility clearer than I've ever had, including the Great Barrier Reef. After seeing at least 4 turtles, schools of yellow tang and a whole bunch of other fish and coral I could not recommend this place enough. This is a definite must if you visit the Big Island. No sand, not very crowded just snorkelers and fish.
Wonderful area to snorkel. Abundant sea life. Saw a school of yellow tang, about 100 all together. Sea turtles as well. Easy entry/exit to the water using Two Step. Tidal pools to view as well. There is a parking area on the right before entering the national park.
This was a 20 minute drive from Kahaluu-Keauhou on the west coast. Take the main road "11" then "160" right turn to go down. There is parking before you get to the One- way but scant. We entered the One-way and went past the bay and up the road and found a spot. Get there b4 10:00 am if you... 更多
We first visited the National Historic Site to learn about history. Very friendly and knowledge rangers. We got there early before the tour buses so it was nice and quiet. Very pretty location. Be ready to take lots of pictures! Close by (walking around the corner) at Two-Steps is a wonderful snorkeling spot - beautiful fish. There's the left and... 更多
Nice area but small. We went around noon on a Wed and the area was too crowded for me, I'm more of a non-tourist, tourist. The weather had been acting up all week so the water was a little rough and visibility wasn't great. If you don't mind the crowd the snorkeling is good.
So easy to get in as there were two lava steps down into the water. The fish were amazing. My son also saw a turtle. The protected cove meant not much swell so swimming was easy. The black lava rocks do get very hot in the sun so don't forget to leave your flip flops near the steps (upside down... 更多
Get there early, and you have a shot at seeing some "more rare" sights like turtles and octopus. These two especially go in once things get busy at 9am and after. It's my favorite place in the world to be from 7am to 9am or so. So serene and the snorkeling is amazing. And you'll usually be the only one... 更多
Known locally as "Two Steps" this area next to the Pu`uhonua O Hōnaunau National Historical Park is almost as good snorkeling as the Captain Cook Memorial in Kealakekua Bay but it is much more accessible, The coral here is about 10-15 down and turtles are often seen swimming around. You access the water from the lava rocks just to the... 更多
This has to be the best snorkeling off the shore on the big island. Probably see as much as those who pay for the high priced tours here. Dolphins were present in the bay on one of our two visits.
