SCUBA & SNORKELING

We haven't yet done a dive on Kauai, but on our Best Beaches page, we listed some

highly-recomended snorkeling sites and dive site & shops. 

We have snorkeled in from of the Princeville and found it great for

beginning snorkelers and kids – especially if you do not feel like going very far.

Craig and Elizabeth enjoy the SCUBA diving on Maui.

We recommend the PADI dive shop at the Four Seasons on Maui.

If you have children, we recommend the Grand Wailea for an introduction to SCUBA – they have a separate pool just for learning – it has fish and all sorts of sea life painted on the rock pool's walls to simulate the experience of open water diving.

Both the Grand Wailea and Four Seasons can open-water certify divers.

If snorkeling is more your thing or you have children who want to try it out, the Princeville provides snorkel gear and the beach waters are protected. You only need to walk out about 5 feet in order to see a plethora of sea life.
