Shark's Cove: Snorkeling with Endangered Turtles
Listen to audio sample:
One of the best places for snorkeling in Oahu is Shark’s Cove. Not sure how the name came to be, but some said that they call it Shark’s cove for the abundance of sharks in this area... just kidding! Shark’s cove is actually a marine conservation district, with a diversity of sea life just below the water. Green sea turtles also frequently visit the cove. But remember, it’s against the law to harm turtles or - even touch them. So if you do get lucky and see one of these gentle creatures, please enjoy it from a distance.
if you bring children, to the left of Shark’s cove is an area of tidepools, perfect for kids to wade through and paddle around in. A word of caution for all, the lava rocks are very sharp. Remember to use caution as you get in and out of the water.
