Top Five snorkeling spots in the Islands: HAWAII Magazine Facebook poll results


No. 3


Kealakekua Bay is a Marine Life Conservation District, located about 12 miles south of the Kailua-Kona area. It's known as an excellent spot for snorkeling, suba diving and kayaking. Capt. James Cook sailed into the bay in 1779 — one year after he had made his mark as the first European explorer to establish contact in the Islands. Cook was killed here during a clash with Hawaiians. Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park memorializes Cook's death with a white obelisk.
