When is the best time of day to snorkel on Maui? Answered by Tom Barefoot's Tours


Snorkeling can be good any time of day. The quality of your snorkeling experience is usually a function of the ocean currents and visibility. As a general rule of thumb the earlier you get into the water to snorkel during normal 'trade wind' weather the calmer and the glassier the ocean surface will be and this would make for more desirable snorkeling conditions however even on windy afternoons many boats can tuck into protected and sheltered areas that allow for the same great snorkeling.

Hawaii snorkeling is by far the single most popular category of activities to be found in Hawaii. One reason for this is that snorkeling in Hawaii is often a component of many different types of tours found on any individual island such as many of the dolphin watches, whale watches, diving tours, raft excursions and even in some cases dinner cruises.
