Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Black Rock (Sheraton)

Nice, easy access snorkeling site from the beach. First 30 meters (100ft) or so of the approx. 80m outcropping is excellent for showing kids underwater reef life. Off of the end current becomes an issue and it seemed like most of the flora and fauna was along the wall from the beach to the end. Have been there in March and July. In March snorkeling while the humpback whales were singing offshore was one of the coolest "nature" experiences I've had. Black Rock is on the site of the Sheraton Hotel. If you are staying at any of the hotels along the beach in Kaanapali take the beach walkway north until it ends at the rock outcropping (Black Rock). If driving you can pay to park in the covered lot by the Sheraton. If you didn't bring any snorkel or dive equipment you can rent it just off the beach on the Sheraton Property. Bring disposable underwater camera and watch for urchins if you get in close to the rock.
