    For all of you who've been to Kauai before, where's the best snorkeling spots? I've heard Larsens Beach is pretty good. My FI and I are going there at the end of June and I wanted to start doing some planning.

      kee beach on the north side of the island was my favorite for snorkeling - clear water, great reef
      and lots of huge sea turtles (I love the turtles!)
      we went there practically every day :)

        We went on a catamaran snorkeling tour and it was very nice. It was on the north side of the island.

            Best snorkeling beaches: (all in the North Shore)

            1. Lydgate State Park in Wailua for beginners
            2. Tunnels Beach for intermediate snorkeler
            3. Kee Beach - for intermediate snorkeler
            4. Hideaways

            For a virtual tour of these beaches, see the thread on Virtual Tour of Kauai.

            Best to you!

                Gotta agree with Kee beach for snorkeling. We went to a few spots on the island and from the moment we were knee deep in the ocean at Kee there was a school of huge fish swimming about. Snorkeling was pretty much effortless with so many beautiful fish there! We're going back in August...yay!!!

                  I got the following guidebook, so I should be in pretty good shape as far as where to go, unless there's some pretty rare hidden gems. The reviews on it look really good though.

                    What made Tunnels so great? I've heard about it here and there.

                      We snorkeled at Princeville, and it was nice. There were a lot of colorful fish. We didn't have a chance to go anywhere else. I'm not much help.
