Go below the Surface in the Best Places to Snorkel in Kauai

There’s nothing quite like trading in the routine of everyday life for the tranquility of the beach. If you’re ready for a bit of R&R, pack your bags for a tropical escape to Kauai. Whether you’re planning a getaway to the South Shore, North Shore, or East Shore, Kauai Exclusive Management has the perfect luxury vacation rental that will give you a cozy place to call home. With vacation rentals on three sides of the island, our homes are close to some of the best places to snorkel in Kauai. 

Where to Go Snorkeling on Kauai

Snorkeling is a great way to see what lies below the surface but isn’t as difficult as scuba diving. Every side of Kauai has excellent spots for snorkeling, but we’ve put together a list of the best of the best.

  • Found on the South Shore, Poipu Beach Park is an ideal location for beginners. While the snorkeling area is small with a sandy bottom, there is a spot to the right with coral, fish, and maybe even a monk seal.
  • Kee Beach on the North Shore is a prime snorkeling spot if the surf conditions allow it. There can be a strong rip current on the reef’s left side, so be cautious during your adventure. Also, be sure not to go outside the reef, as that area is for experts only.
  • On the east side of the island is Lydgate Beach Park, which is an ideal spot if you’re trying this water activity for the first time. While there is no coral here, plenty of fish are still swimming near the outer rocks. 

While you can go on your own excursions, sometimes it’s nice to let experienced guides show you around on snorkeling tours. Blue Dolphin Charters has a charter that takes you out on the Napali Coast. Snorkel Bob’s also has two different tours that include snorkeling.
