Park at the Kāʻanapali Beach Public Parking, then walk the Kāʻanapali Beach Public Access Trail, and head North on Kāʻanapali Beach to Black Rock.
The Black Rock Swim Route at Black Rock is a fantastic experiencing for all snorkelers. Black Rocks offers clear waters and the deepest depth of about 35 feet.
If you follow the Black Rock Swim Route, you can go around the Black Rock Point and swim onto another beach. Most snorkelers head to the first round point of Black Rock and into the small cove for further exploration. The waves and currents can become strong and we recommend being safe while snorkeling at Black Rock.
While snorkeling, you may encounter Spotted Eagle Rays, Eels, Boxfish, Butterflyfish, Chromis, Chub, Cornetfish, Dascyllus, Filefish, Goatfish, Grouper, Hawkfish, Moorish Idol, Needlefish, Parrotfish, Sergeant, Surgeonfish, Tang, Triggerfish, Trumpetfish, Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, Unicornfish, Wrasse, Sea Urchin, Sea Turtles, coral walls, reefs, and black rocks.
