This may well be a strange request, but I haven't been able to find what I'm looking for by researching on my own. I am a strong swimmer, and grew up swimming in the Atlantic, and working as a lifeguard and swim instructor. I have never been snorkeling. My husband, on the other hand, is not at all a strong swimmer, and can't even float. (Physically, he can't float. I've been teaching toddlers to float for years - my husband doesn't have the body fat to float.) He also chills very easily in the water. (Again, serious lack of body fat. Would that I were so lucky.)
My husband would like very much to go snorkeling while we are in Maui in May (staying at the Sheraton in Ka'anapali), but he would much rather go WITH someone who knows what they're doing, on a guided tour of some kind with a person trained in water safety, who knows about currents and rip tides. However, since he's not a strong swimmer, he wants to do this off a beach somwhere, not as part of a boat trip where the water will be deeper. (Remember, I've never been snorkeling, so if I'm misunderstanding something basic about the natire fo snorkeling, please educate me.)
Does anyone know of a company that does this sort of tour? I had assumed that we would just rent gear and snorkel off of Black Rock, since we're staying right there, but we would be willing to go anywhere on the island (though closer to the hotel is better) in order to make this happen for my husband.
Thanks in advance.
