I know Hawaii is always busy, but what are the one or two very top tourism months in Hawaii?

Wyndham Platinum Founders(cough,gag). RCI, Shell, and WorldMark points. Disney's OKW and SSR pts; Marriott's Willow Ridge (4);Val Chatelle (7); Hono Koa (3); SBP lots and lots, SDO a few; Grand Palms (selling those). WKORV-OF (2).
Summer, definitely. Also winter whale season, but summer is highest. Christmas and New Year's weeks are also very high season, with kids out of school.

Two days ago when I was speaking with the head of reservations at Point at Poipu, she said that Presidents Week was their most popular week, followed by Christmas and New Years.

If you can, avoid Spring Break, Summer, Christmas, and Thanksgiving or anytime the kids are out of school like Fall Break in Hawaii.

We will spend a month in Hawaii from mid January to mid February. This is our first experience in winter. We will be in Kauai for 2 wks followed by Maui. If the snorkling is poor, we will try early May to mid June for a change. Prior to my retirement, we vacationed in Hawaii for several weeks during prime time, including the July 4th holiday. :whoopie:

Summer is the highest demand season for timeshares. Mid winter has the most tourists (taking into account hotel usage, etc.). As noted above, there are spikes around holidays, etc.

If you look in the II book, you can see the highest demand weeks by the Travel Demand Index, page 245. Christmas, NY, and Presidents week, followed by summer and spring weeks. Weeks 16-21 about average, 34-50 lower demand.

Assuming snorkel conditions mimic diving conditions, my experience has been location is more a factor than time of year. Maui and the Big Island are the best locations as there is less sand and more volcanic rock allowing for greater visibility. Kauai, in my experience has been the worst as it is the oldest island and has more sandy bottom conditions which cuts the visibility(20-30 feet vis is not unlikely whereas a bad day on the Big Island is 50'.)

The biggest factor that affects visibility is not sandy bottom, but rather surface runoff. Snorkeling is best on the west sides of Maui and the Big Island because there are no streams that run into the ocean in those areas. same thing applies to all of the minor islands. Kaua'i waters have less visibility because the island is sufficiently old to have developed a river system on all sides.
