It's been quite alarming to notice a rising number of tourist deaths in Hawaii, particularly linked to snorkeling. Several factors contribute to this, including underlying health conditions, inexperience in water activities, and strong ocean currents. Many tourists are not adequately prepared for Hawaii's powerful tides and unpredictable weather conditions. Furthermore, the excitement of exploring the beautiful underwater world can push individuals to exceed their physical limits. It's essential to prioritize safety, get proper training, and understand one's abilities before venturing into deep waters.
