Snorkeling on Kaanapali Beach
If you go to the activities desk at MKV and ask about snorkeling, they will
tell you that some of the best snorkeling is right off the beach.|
There's a reef right in front of the beach park about 100 yards north of MKV. You can see the island of Lanai in the background.
and sea turtles swim around "Black Point" by the Sheraton at the south end of the beach.

Tip: Rent your snorkeling equipment by the week at one of the snorkel shops nearby. It's a fraction of the cost of renting them by the day at the hotel.
If you drive north past Kapalua about 1/2 mile past mile marker 32, you'll find Honolua Bay. Snorkeling is excellent, but go on a day when the seas are calm. Swells out of the north can make this a great surfing, but poor snorkeling location.
At mile marker 14 south of Lahaina there's excellent snorkeling as well.
Molokini is a guided tour to the inside of a crescent shaped crater farther south, down by Wailea.
