This paddling tour takes place on the calm-reef protected waters of Kailua Bay, Oahu. One of our trained Naturalists will guide you along this beautiful coastal area to several close offshore islets. Along the way, you will see our most important resident, the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. Your guide, well-versed in Hawaiian history, marine life, and our island's geological formations will tell stories and impart thought provoking information about Hawaii that most visitors would love to hear about.
You will be landing your safe and stable sit-on-top kayak on one of the two, world famous beaches (Kailua or Lanikai) for some snorkeling with our tropical fish and turtles. Your guide is also a master paddler and instructor so you will learn the fun and safe way to paddle your kayak. If you choose to, our guide will even teach you how to catch a few waves.
You’ll also stop at several of our close offshore islands which will include swimming and relaxing on white sandy beaches while sea and shore birds flock overhead and nest near-by. The windward coast of Oahu has over 12 varieties of seabirds inhabiting this flourishing coastline. While on the island you will gently trek to natural pools or a breath-taking cove. This will be a day enjoyed by all.
Please note that there will now be a "State Bird Sanctuary Access Fee" of $5.00 per person charged at the store in addition to the price of the tour. This fee helps to protect the local ecosystem so that our seabirds can flourish.
