Coral Reef Fish & Life Pictures & Info

There are several hundred fish species in Hawaii’s coral reef systems, with approximately one quarter of these fish species endemic (existing nowhere else in the world) to Hawaii. On our Kauai snorkeling tours to Napali and Niihau, you will have a chance to swim and snorkel with a vast variety of colorful reef fish and other life including: angel fish, unicorn fish, parrot fish, moray eels, butterfly fish, manta rays and many other unique and fascinating creatures. There are farmers and grazers, predators and prey; it’s a ballet that has been going on for millions of years.

A coral reef is a delicate and fragile ecosystem, and we at Holo Holo Charters take our role as stewards of the reef seriously. The reef is a source of great beauty as well as our livelihood. For instance, instead of dropping an anchor at our snorkel spots (which can drag and damage the fragile reef), one of the crew physically rides the anchor to the bottom and places it in a preset eyebolt so as not to damage the reef.
