What You Can Expect
Jump in your double kayak and paddle with your partner down the Hanalei River toward the scenic Hanalei Bay, home to the snorkeler's paradise -- Bay Reef Lagoon. Drift past taro fields and tall grasses that dance with the wind. Bask in the warm sunshine and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. After paddling for 45 minutes, arrive on shore and enjoy a complimentary snack while you take a break on the beautiful white-sand beach.
Then don your provided snorkeling gear and follow your guide out into the lagoon, where you’ll discover colorful reefs and fish. Keep an eye out for Hawaiian sea turtles! If you’re feeling adventurous, grab a surf kayak and paddle the gentle waves of Hanalei Bay. This perfectly shaped crescent bay is one of Hawaii’s most scenic, and it affords a perfect view of Makana Peak.
Finish your tour by kayaking back to your starting point, from where you’ll ride with your group back to the tour departure location.
This tour was amazing!
The kayaks are easy to maneuver and I'll never turn down a chance to venture out into Hanalei Bay. Although our guide has funny and personable, there were virtually no tangible instructions given for operating the kayak or the snorkeling gear. This is fine if you already have some experience, but there were true novices who seemed to struggle in both areas. The snorkeling launch point is beautiful, but full of coral in the shallow waters, so it was difficult to launch out. The coral is surrounded by a lot of tropical fish. Incidentally, this experience made me fall in love with snorkeling, while my wife swore it off for all eternity.
