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.

My wife and I went out for the half day catamaran sail on their 18' Hobie Cat and it was hands down one of our favorite activities we've done on Oahu! Our guide Parker was extremely knowledgeable about the history surrounding Kaneohe Bay and we had a great all around experience sailing, snorkeling, and swimming with countless turtles. We will...

This is our second time with Holokai Kayak and Snorkel Adventure. We went the first time in January 2014, and had a positive experience then, so we thought we'd give it another go. Very happy we did. In fact, this trip, though the same as last time, was far better and more enjoyable. We snorkelled further than before and in... More

If you are planning on kayaking for 4-8 hours you need to expect to get tired. We went out to the sandbar first and i'm not going to lie, I was exhausted. It was much further away that I expected. We saw a couple turtles and that made it completely worth it. I did not get out of the kayak,... More

We had a great lunch before we went out on the catamaran. Kevin was our guide. It was like going with a friend. He was kind, sweet and very knowledgeable about the area. When i come back i will ask for Kevin. He is a great young man.

The Kayak and Snorkel Adventure was truly a highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Natalie was very welcoming and informative and gave us great tips. It was a ton of fun and really interesting seeing and learning about the area and fish we saw. The BBQ lunch afterward was delicious and they sent us some pictures of us kayaking and... More

The staff with Holokai Adventures is both professional and friendly. They are great at putting you at ease. It was a wonderful experience with fun people in a beautiful location. They provide a dry bag for your belongings and take it on their boat to the island where you snorkel. Snacks and drinks are provided there and a delicious lunch... More

Awesome adventure with many different options packed in. Did the kayak and snorkeling adventure with BBQ lunch afterward. Our two guides Natalie and Zoe were both very welcoming and informative on all the native biology. The kayak adventure was a great way to get out on the ocean to go snorkeling as opposed to a typical motor boat ride. Snorkeling... More
