Snorkel Hawaii: Maui and Lanai is the first guidebook exclusively devoted to snorkeling on Maui and Lanai.
From a colorful cover to dozens of detailed maps of snorkeling sites, it draws you into the fascinating underwater world that shouldn't be missed by anyone touring Maui or Lanai.
As Dave Barry says: "When you finally see what goes on underwater, you realize that you've been missing the whole point of the ocean--it's like going to the circus and staring at the outside of the tent."
It is the second in a series of guidebooks that provide more detailed snorkeling information than ever before available for each of the Hawaiian islands in an attractive, easy to carry package. Snorkel Hawaii: The Big Island, also available from Amazon.com, provides the same detailed coverage of this beautiful island. Our website, www.malinowski.com, provides detailed information, updates and more.

Why Maui and Lanai?
Maui offers more snorkeling sites within easy reach than any other Hawaiian island. There is something here for every snorkeler, and ample variety to keep a whole family happy.
Laze around on endless golden beaches and cool yourself with colorful snorkeling swims. Follow this up with good food, shopping and socializing if you're so inclined. It's all close at hand on Maui.
There are many sites with easy entry from calm, sheltered bays and broad, golden sandy beaches. Maui has extensive reefs with plenty of colorful and exciting creatures. Popular Molokini Island, with its crystal-clear waters, or the unique Island of Lanai lie just a brief excursion away, and offer a change of pace if you're in the mood.
The choices are ample: beautiful, sweeping expanses of soft coral sand and diverse snorkeling sites; action-packed total destination resorts with all the amenities; secluded little-known beach retreats just around the bend; or nearby, less touristed neighbor island hideaways. Choices like this have made Maui a legendary destination.
An active vacation is memorable for adventure as well as relaxation. Hassles and missteps finding out where to go can raise your blood pressure, and waste your time. We've done extensive research that will help you quickly locate appropriate sites that fit your interests and abilities, saving your valuable vacation hours.
Snorkeling sites in Hawaii are trickier than some calmer parts of the world, so it's best to get good advice before heading out. Everyone's had their share of unpleasant experiences due to vague directions, as well as outdated or inaccurate information. We have created the Snorkel Hawaii series as that savvy snorkeling buddy everyone needs. We hope you'll enjoy the personal stories we've included; see About the Authors on page 126 if you want to know a little more about us.
We have personally snorkeled all the major sites listed. The challenge lies in knowing how to find them quickly, as well as how to enter and exit, and where to snorkel, so you'll have a safe and rewarding experience. Our detailed maps and instructions will ease the uncertainty, saving you time and effort.
Try to visit Maui and Lanai at least once in your life, and by all means don't miss the underwater world. Aloha!From the Back Cover:
