The Princeville hotel has a nice area to snorkel right out front. Tunnels beach is nice, and Ke'e is okay if you get there early. It gets crowded in a hurry.

I've had the best luck at Lawai Beach by Beach House restaurant west of Poipu.

I vote for Lawai Beach too. Also Poipu beach nearby has very good snorkelling.

Poipu is quite variable. If it's calm enough to snorkel west of the tombolo it's not bad. Lawai is consistently good, especially if you go out almost to the breakers and explore the big coral heads.
