My family has lived there extensively via US Navy. Consider a top for UV
protection. A shell for high wind while sea kayaking is all is necessary.
You'll be snorkeling in a bathtub.

A:Katie, June in Hawaii will normally have air temps in the 80s and water in the 70s. How much insulation you need depends somewhat on your cold tolerance. For snorkeling, where you'll be in the water for long periods you may find the 1.0 better, especially if you chill easily. The best plan would be to go with layers, say the 0.5 jacket along with a 0.5 shirt. Have fun!Answered on 3/19/2014 by Clyde from NRS

Comments about NRS Women's HydroSkin 0.5 Jacket:
I ordered a M Womens and exchanged it for an XL Womens. I am 5'6", 140 pounds. I wore it kayaking on a Class 111 fast moving river and I was warm and dry after being submerged in cold water. I would buy it again.
