Swim and snorkel through vibrant coral when you visit Kapoho Tide Pools. Lower yourself into one of the pools, and float around to see numerous brightly colored fish. Be careful getting in, as the rocks can be slippery. Explore crevices in the rocks to see the fish swimming around, or just float and enjoy the water, which is volcanically heated and generally quite warm. Visitors are urged not to touch the coral or wear fins, as it kills the coral, but the pools are calm enough to explore without them. Take note that no public restrooms are available. A visit to Kapoho Tide Pools represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Pahoa trip planner to plot your vacation.
