Exceeded our expectations. Top-notch book!,

This review is from: Snorkel Hawaii: The Big Island (Paperback)
We spent two weeks on the Big Island, snorkeling beach after beach. Our general guidebook was helpful, but not that useful for getting us to snorkeling spots.
This guidebook, on the other hand, has detailed, clear maps that made getting to places easy. We found them to be clear, accurate and pretty foolproof. It helps take the stress out of getting there.
We didn't expect the Big Island to be a great beach destination, and were pleasantly surprised at how many fine beaches there are, and how much snorkeling adds to the experience. We especially liked all the insider advice on how to snorkel properly. Snorkeling is fun and easy, and not beyond the capabilities of youthful seniors like us.
All the pointers on where to enter the water safely, and what hazards to watch out for, made us feel more confident.
We especially enjoyed Kealakekua Bay, a spot we probably would have overlooked if not for the enthusiastic review. It is the finest snorkeling we have seen in Hawaii.
Now that we have good equipment and training, we look forward to returning to the Big Island and snorkeling more. We'll take our well-thumbed copy of Snorkel Hawaii The Big Island with us. We recommend it highly.
