What You Can Expect
Once completing your instruction for your Oahu kayak adventure, you’ll paddle along the tranquil and glassy waters of Kaneohe Bay. Due to the protected reef surrounding the area, this is one of the safest places for kayaking on Oahu.
Your journey by kayak along Kualoa, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, takes you past Mokoli'i Island to the 800-year old Molii fishpond (one of the last ancient Hawaiian fishponds). This rock-walled enclosure was hand-built by ancient Hawaiians to maintain a ready supply of live ocean fish. As part of the privately- owned Kualoa Ranch, you will have the rare opportunity to experience an ancient Hawaiian treasure that most visitors to Oahu never get to see.
As your kayak glides along the tranquil coast line of Kaneoohe Bay, your adventure includes an exclusive visit to Oahu’s hidden gem known as "Secret Island". This secluded beach in the country becomes your playground for relaxation, enjoyment and a picnic lunch. Whether you want to relax in a hammock, take a stroll around the island, or return to the ocean for a quick canoe ride, you’re certain not to want to leave.
We loved this adventure! It may have been our favorite day on our trip, but it is so hard to pick favorites when you are in Hawaii!
Matias was a friendly, knowledgable, and relaxed tour guide. His knowledge of the island, surfing, weather, and all things Hawaii was incredibly helpful. We used his recommendations for the rest of our trip. He was very happy to answer every question our small group threw at him. From the moment he pulled up to our Waikiki hotel for pick-up he made us feel welcomed, excited, and ready for the day!
The photos we took and Matias took for us are the best photos we have from our trip to Oahu. The hike is more of a short walk, but the views were amazing. The kayaking is doable for all levels. The snorkeling was fun, but do not reserve this as your only snorkeling trip while on Oahu. We saw many fish, but we didn't see what we expected to see while snorkeling in Hawaii. We were very happy that we drove over to Hanauma Bay another morning to see all of the colorful fish you imagine you'd see in Hawaii.
Overall, this trip is worth every penny. If you are looking for a relaxed, memorable adventure, reserve this one. If you are looking for something more intense, it seems this company also provides extreme biking and hiking tours!
This tour was awesome! Jeremy did such a great job! So many memories made!
