As the Great Plains heat up my mind starts to drift to the ocean and how we wish we were there.  One of our favorite vacations of all time was a 10 day stay to the Big Island of Hawaii.  Not as crowded as Oahu or Maui and just as beautiful.  In our minds the …

Snorkeling Tips


Oh…how I wish I was heading to the ocean right now.  One of our favorite hobbies is to go snorkeling, which is not at all easy to do when we live smack dab in the middle of the Plains.  Karen and I first fell in love with snorkeling the very first time that we went …

Palauea Beach Park- Maui


Palauea Beach is a wonderful snorkeling area that is primitive and not as pretty to look at as the well manicured resort beaches, but when I think of a Native Hawaiian beach this is what I picture in my mind’s eye.  The beach runs for about 500 feet, but there are absolutely no amenities which …

Ulua to Mokapu Beach – Maui


Ulua and Mokapu Beaches are two beautiful beaches located in South Maui, and like most beaches in the Wailea area they are great for snorkeling.  One of the hardest things for Karen and me to do while on vacation in Maui was picking what beach we were going to snorkel at today which was a …

Black Rock – Maui

Black Rock

Black Rock is a snorkel spot that Karen and I checked out when we went to spend the afternoon in Lahaina.  We picked Black Rock because we had heard it was a good spot to see spotted eagle rays, unfortunately we did not get to see any.  It is a very interesting spot if you …

Onuoli Beach (Black Sand Beach) – Maui

Onuoli Beach

This beach probably has the easiest access to the nicest coral that I saw on Maui.  There are a lot of nice areas to snorkel on Maui in fact I would almost venture to say that the snorkeling on Maui is just as good if not better then the Big Island.  I had to admit …

Ahihi Bay – Maui

Honu 1

Ahihi Bay is part of the Ahihi-Kina’u Reserve.  It is probably the best place to snorkel on the island of Maui.  Karen and I saw countless boats going to Molokini Island, but we almost felt bad for all those people.  Ahihi Bay was hardly ever crowded and I cannot see how Molokini could be any better.  We …

Honolua Bay- Maui

Honolua Bay

Honolua Bay on Maui’s northwest shore is an awesome place to snorkel if you come during the summer months, and from what we saw on our second to last day there in late October it must be an incredible surfing spot when the north swell comes in during the winter months.  Karen and I lucked …

Maluaka Beach- Maui

Green Sea Turtle with Border

Maluaka Beach was a great spot to snorkel, Karen and I had a hard time picking which place to go to while we were in Maui.  There were so many snorkel spots to pick from.   Each night when we were deciding on where to go we had a hard time making up our mind.  Maluaka …

Kahalu’u Beach Park: Children’s Beach

Eel Closeup

Kahalu’u Beach Park on the Big Island is the perfect spot for beginner snorkelers which might be why it also goes by the name Children’s Beach.  It is always calm but the entry can be slippery.  For the most part it was very easy to get in the water.  The only down side is the fact that …
