It was my first time ever snorkeling and I think that I picked a great place to learn. I was out in the water for an hour at a time. I went out 3 times, and each time I went out a little farther. On the last time out, I went the farthest, but on the way back the water started to get cloudy from all of the visitors. I really wanted to see the turtles but we didn't see any. I will definitely revisit next time I am in Hawaii.
