Description:

Kayak on beautiful Kane'ohe Bay located on the windward coast of Oahu....

Kayak on beautiful Kane'ohe Bay located on the windward coast of Oahu. Kane'ohe Bay is home to Oahu's only barrier reef. Enjoy a guided eco-tour with Kama'aina Kids' friendly staff of certified instructors. Experience the magnificence of Kaneohe Bay's pristine waters and diverse sea life with the Bay's one and only kayak eco-tour. The three hour tour will journey to Coconut Island, home of the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology (and where the television show, Gilligan's Island, was filmed). Along the way explore and snorkel at various patch reefs and observe sea turtles, rays, and tropical fish in their natural habitat. Your guide will point out cultural sites, such as the traditional Hawaiian fish pond at He'eia, and will also explain some of the challenges facing the ecosystem of the Bay. The protected waters of the Kaneohe Bay make it a perfect place for kayakers of all skill levels. This hands-on approach makes it a safe and exciting learning experience for all ages.

It was a great experience to kayak, struggling with the waves and going against the wind. Snorkeling gives another taste and scenery. And it is nice to know that we are safe, because Natalie and Kevin are watching us and ready to help whenever needed. We had two children, 8 and 6 years old, and were a little too young... More

We took part in the kayak and snorkel tour on our stay in Oahu. This place was fantastic, with very friendly employees who were very helpful, they even provided a dry bag to keep what we needed out on the water dry. We had a 10 and 12 year old, and they were very accommodating. They tow the kayaks out... More

Transportation was timely, and Corey was great. Everyone was kind and informative every step of the way. We had Natalie as a guide, and she was fantastic. She was informative and helpful, and very aware of needs of the group. I would recommend this to everyone!

I really lucked out with this tour as I was the only one who signed up for it. This meant that the trip was customized for me and what I wanted to do. I sailed with Kevin who was just great as a guide. We sailed to three different locations to snorkel. It was a lot of fun. Spent the... More

My 22 year Purdue daughter and I enjoying a great Spring Break for her while it snows back home. Yesterday we attended the Holokai Kayak & Snorkel Adventures and we had a blast! Kevin & Cory were our guides and they did an awesome job of explaining safety yet allowing us to enjoy ourselves. On this particular day we were... More

This was a very cool spot to visit. The sandbar is amazing. It is more like an island with beautiful views surrounding you. It was an easy kayak trip there for people that are not experienced. The kayak rental is convenient and very friendly and helpful.

My husband and I are typically 'do it yourself' adventurers, but the pragmatic approach to not having to get racks for kayaks while traveling makes a tour enticing. Add to this a tow out to an island, amazing snorkeling with tropical fish and turtles, then a paddle back over coral reefs, followed by a barbeque lunch and thoughts of DIY... More

I attended the turtle snorkling adventure with this tour group. It was amazing. Staff were great, patient and very informative. We did see turtles and it was fantastic. Amazing experience. After snorkelling they take you for a sail which was good fun. Would certainly recommend this tour if you like snorkling.
