    The only book you need and should have for snorkling around the Big Island

    I generally do not like to buy a book that I have not been able to thumb through and/or read or skim through a few pages. Doing so gives me a feel for how readable a book is, how it is laid out etc. I made an exception in the case of the Malinowskis' Snorkel Hawaii firstly because I had not previously come across a guide book that covered snorkel sites of the Big Island, and secondly because this book had so many good reviews - I bought the book unseen just based on its description and positive reviews.I was not disappointed. The book is very well laid out and easy to read. Someone who is just starting out or who has relatively little snorkling experience will likely benefit from introductory information in the book on how to choose snorkel gear, safety tips etc. More experienced snorklers can easily skip through this material or skim through it if they like.The priceless info contained in the book however is detailed, honest and accurate yet concise... 5/5 Gloabtrotter - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Best snorkel book out there for the Big Island

    5/5 Sally Myers (SOUTH DARTMOUTH, MA, US) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Snorkel Hawaii The Big Island Guide to the beaches and snorkeling of Hawaii, 4th Edition (Paperback) I have owned three copies of this book. It is my bible for snorkeling on the Big Island of Hawaii. One copy I gave to a friend. One got wet from going to the beach so much and I bought the third before heading to Hawaii for two months this winter.It gives excellent directions and comments for ALL the good snorkel spots and includes pictures of fish you are likely to encounter.It is written in a folksy style that gives one the impression that the author really knows the waters and has a great love for Hawaii.I highly recommend this book to novices and experts alike.

    By far the best snorkeling book on the Big Island

    5/5 evie chauncey - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Snorkel Hawaii The Big Island Guide to the beaches and snorkeling of Hawaii, 4th Edition (Paperback) I have snorkeled a lot on the Big Island, and I find this book amazing. I love the Sites at a Glance section, which has an incredible amount of information packed onto 2 pages, including the quality of snorkeling, how easy it is to get in, the facilities, the map reference, and general notes. Each of the specific sites has a lot of information, including excellent detailed maps about how to get there and the best places to snorkel. I have seen fish that I would never have seen without this reference. Thank you, Mel and Judy, for such a fine book. I would recommend this book to beginning and advanced snorkelers.

    A MUST if you're planning on adventuring while in hawaii!

    5/5 KerriB - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) My husband and I were planning on going to the big island and, although we had a GPS, I wanted a map that we would use to mark the places we wanted to go while we were on the plane (something to do to pass the 10 hours in the air! :) this map turned out to be a Godsend! we were on the Big Island for 8 days and wore this map out! we did a lot of touristing and this map was really helpful! Not only did it show towns, roads, etc., it also showed points of interest that came in very handy! It also showed the lava flows and gave the dates of them. If you're going to the Big Island and plan on doing some adventuring, this is a great map to get! We also got one for Oahu, which was very helpful on that island as well.

    Good quality, but another maybe better.

    3/5 Alan Schmierer (Los Osos, CA United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) This is a high quality plastic map with great detail. Another map that I purchased at the same time, however, the"Hawaii Travel Map" (National Geographic Adventure Map), is also plastic and good quality, AND is a little easier to read and, in addition, has all of the islands.

    From a map junkie: this is an EXCELLENT map

    5/5 Mrs. Magpie - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Map of Hawaii: The Big Island (Map) Bought this for our first visit to the Big Island. We circled the island, hiking here and there and visiting beaches and parks, and this was the ONLY map we needed. Everything is shown here, from the major roads to the minor ones, with enough magnification of the cities to find your way around easily. All of the beaches and state parks are shown as well as museums and historical sites and even some touristy stuff like where the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut visitor center is located :)Even better: natural features not shown elsewhere, like the dates of the lava flows you're driving over and the elevations of mountains and towns.Recommendation: Get this and the book "Hawaii, the Big Island Trailblazer" and you'll have all you need to have a heckuva good trip!

    This is a good book if you don't want all the details

    3/5 KP - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Frommer's Shortcut Hawaii Big Island (Shortcut Guide) (Paperback) This is a good book if you don't want all the details. Shortcut means shorter book, thus there was a lot left out. If you don't really want to explore the island much, then it is OK.

This review is from: Frommer's Shortcut Hawaii Big Island (Shortcut Guide) (Paperback) This is a nice book, but seems more "shrunken" than those from other years.
