Anyone know if there are areas where bringing a pocket knife is not allowed in snorkeling areas near the shore or on dive cruises?

Never heard of any prohibition, although I am not sure of the need

Well just in case I get tangled for whatever reason. Sort of a just in case as I'll be in Maui. I heard a rumor from a friend that some places they don't allow you to carry a knife.

If they actually state you can't have a dive knife, and entanglement is your worry, then Deep Outdoors (http://www.deepoutdoors.com) makes a slick line cutter:
