Past Ho'okipa is the infamous Pe'ahi, or Jaws, where you can watch professionals, towed by jet skis, surf 40- to 70-foot waves. Inspired by the pros? Whatever your age, skill or interest, there's someone here who can teach you to surf. Snorkeling and Diving Introduce yourself to Hawai'i's friendly fish! There are hundreds of snorkeling sites around the islands where you can find fascinating underwater life. All you need is a snorkel, mask and flippers. Here are some of our favorite spots: • Kā'anapali Beach, especially around the famous Pu'u Keka'a, or Black Rock • Honolua Bay, in the summer when surf is gentle • Molokini Crater, a short boat trip from Lāhainā and Mā'alaea Be careful after diving! Wait at least 24 hours before driving to Haleakalā Crater or taking an air tour due to altitude changes. Cruising and Sailing Take to the water for a fun cruise, from lunch and family cruises to sunset and whale-watching cruises (from December through May). Glass-bottom boats and submarines give you front row seats to underwater scenery---no towels required! Even get in the water with a snorkel cruise! Kayaking For surfing alternatives, consider kayaking in the south coast waters of Kīhei, Mākena and Keone'ō'io or La Pérouse Bay. (There are lots of lessons for beginners!) Head out to the water, pack a picnic and a towel and don't forget the sunscreen!
