Left the stingrays and went to a small reef to go snorkeling. By the time we got there the fish were kind of shy and not terribly hungry . Think a lot of other boats had been there before us. People who had never snorkeled before loved it. Other who had done lots of snorkeling on reefs didn't find it so great, Plenty of wave action and 8 - 10 feet of water. Probably not a great activity for young kids unless they are really strong swimmers and use to snorkels and masks. Read Less

Combination Stingray swim and Snorkeling excursion booked independently. Bus took us over to a marina area where we boarded a nice power cat operated by Capt Marvins. Headed out through a nice inlet into the bay and did the stingray swim first, then 2 snorkeling stops - one at the GC barrier reef and another a little further into the bay. Both Snorkeling experiences were great - first got up close to the reef itself, probably 10-20 feet down, few fish in this area, then the second spat had smaller reef, but a ton of tropical fish swimming around. Beautiful place and the crew was very good and professional. Read Less

We have snorkeled Hawaii multiple times, and was a little disappointed. The water was beautiful, but the coral and fish were limited. Also, we weren't allowed to wear fins. They stated that they wanted to ensure we didn't damage the coral. However, considering the depth of the water (10 ft, plus), I don't think that was really an issue. Snorkeling without fins made it much more difficult to move around, follow fish, etc. Read Less

Again the rough weather made snorkeling more of a challenge, but they through out a 40-50' line that you could hang on to and get back to the boat when it was time to go or if you got tired fighting the waves. They also provided squid not only for the stingray sandbar, but also for snorkeling which also had some stingrays and lots of other tropical fish (Sargent Majors) were among the most plentiful. Even those stingrays came up for some squid, but the cool part was feeding the other fish. Read Less
