I know there are plenty "snorkeling on your own" threads on this forum, but they mainly consist of COUPLES or a pair of people wanting to snorkel without a tour company, etc.
I will be traveling solo to Maui in a week, and I just wanted to get some advice on places where I can basically just wade in, stick my head in the water, and see...something. Fish, turtles, anything. LOL Maybe areas surrounded by rocks, bays, etc? I mean, I'll be sure to get a snorkel belt just in case, but I'm not that great a swimmer and just want to enjoy myself, maybe take a few pictures of what's under the water, that type of thing. Nothing too extreme for a complete beginner.
I know not to go out into deeper water by myself, especially since I've never snorkeled before. If I enjoy an experience like the type above, then I might pony up the money to go on a snorkel tour to Molokini or something one of my days there.
Thanks in advance for any advice or tips!
