The Best Snorkeling in Oahu
Shark’s Cove Snorkeling
One of best scenic stops along the popular North Shore. Sharks Cove is the second best snorkeling site in Oahu Hawaii.
Hanauma Bay Snorkeling
The most popular snorkel spot in the world! (and with good reason) and one of the best snorkel spots on Oahu.
Hanauma Bay water temperature
The Hanauma Bay water temperature average in the winter is 77 degrees F. It stays around this temperature through spring and rises during the summer to an average of 78.8 degrees F peaking in the fall at 80.6 degrees F.
Snorkeling at Turtle Canyon is one of the best places to see sea turtles in Oahu. It has many small dense coral formations and serves as a “cleaning station” for turtles, who come to have their shells cleaned by small fish.
You will need a tour to access Turtle canyon since is is located off the shore of Waikiki. I highly recommend taking this sea turtle snorkeling tour from Waikiki. Honestly, its probably the best snorkeling tour in Oahu.
