Our family is headed to Maui in 3 weeks(!!!!!). We have 2 kids...an 8.5 year old daughter and a 7 year old son. My son is scared of a LOT of things...for example, he won't go on a carousel ride at the mall...won't go on carnival rides. We were thinking of doing a snorkeling tour (Concierge has recommended Molokini), but we're honestly concerned that our son won't enjoy it and won't even venture off the boat.
Someone told my husband that you can just walk up on beaches and snorkel. Will you see the same types of things doing it that way as you would on a paid tour?
