This is the best snorkeling on Maui when conditions are right. We went 3 times during our stay 10/10-10/18; it's all in the surf. First and third times the surf was down, no current to speak of, good clarity. The second time; surf was up and visibility was about 15'. Rule of thumb; if surfers are out, don't waste your time; but….. Unbelievable assortment of marine life. Turtles; eels (saw 5, one free-swimming along the bottom) SCHOOLS of fish; starfish. Coral looked pretty healthy. It was great. Snorkel the right side for the best. Entry is rocky, but if you use the remainder of the old boat launch, it's not bad. Snorkeling alone, I left my keys (I left the car open anyway so what the heck), shirt, reef shoes, lens de-fogger, with no problems. Nobody bothering you as you go in; so I guess that phase is over. Totally enjoyable experience.
