I will be in Oahu (Honolulu, Hawaii) at the end of November 2014. What is the best beach/place to snorkel? I want to see colorful coral and fish.

I mostly dove on Oahu. Hanauma Bay is nice, but it can get crowded if you're not there early. Kahe Point has some very good coral due to the power plant discharge. Sharks Cove is also nice, however generally it's only calm in summer as it's on the North Shore. If you're traveling to the Big Island, the snorkeling is much beter. I hope you have a great trip.

As mentioned above, get there early. Last time we snorkeled there, we were at the park at 7am and had it pretty much to ourselves.
