To be fair we did not go snorkling, only visible sign from beach area is old stack so little to see. To get value out of this visit strongly recommend take a longer tour to snorkel.

Visited with Tulagi Dive based at the Honiara Yacht club , Its about 45 minutes outside of Honiara. Well worth a visit - easy shore dives with not too much of a swim out. Good interesting wrecks

Scuba diving or snorkelling at Bonegi is a must if you're staying in Honiara. The wrecks are very accessible from the beach with Bonegi 1 partly out of the water creating a great snorkelling experience with plenty of fish and coral.
