Hawaii's underwater world contains such diversity. More than 20 percent of Hawaiian reef fishes are found nowhere else in the world. Some endemic species that are easily spotted close to the surface include the rainbow hued parrot fish and a wide variety of angel fish and wrasse. The Hawaii State Fish Humuhumunukunukuapuaa (which means fish with nose like a pig) is abundant, as are eels, crustaceans, invertebrates, and reef sharks. Divers may see deeper water fish, manta rays, monk seals, sharks and on a rare occasion, humpback whales.
Many of the snorkeling spots mentioned are also great for SCUBA diving, especially Molokini Crater and the back wall of Molokini. However, there are two other incredible dives.
