Photos: Snorkeling in Hawaii

.article-cta-top

More often than not, our editors return from trips with hundreds – if not thousands – of photos. As was the case with his recent trip to Hawaii, Andrew Harper snapped an abundance of beautiful pictures that couldn’t fit into the pages (print or web) of the June 2016 Hideaway Report. Explore stunning snorkeling photos from Mr. Harper's trip to Hawaii, below.

"We swam through schools of black triggerfish with glowstick-like turquoise stripes, and watched multi-hued parrotfish peck at corals sheltering lipstick-red sea urchins. Needle-shaped trumpetfish eyed us suspiciously, and fluorescent schools of yellow tang fluttered with the current along the reef, like so many aspen leaves in autumn." — Andrew Harper
