What You Can Expect

Oahu Kayak, Hike and Snorkel Adventure

Oahu Kayak, Hike and Snorkel Adventure

Your Oahu hiking adventure begins with a short hike to a scenic overlook at the entrance to Hakipuu Valley. Here you will have the chance to capture an aerial perspective of the breathtakingly beautiful landscape, from its forested valleys to its inviting ocean reef waters. From this point on, your day will continue to unfold with one unforgettable highlight after another.

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.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Had a fantastic time. The short hike to a small plateau with breathtaking view was amazing as well as the kayaking to the little island. It is simply mind blowing looking back to the island. I also wanted to thank Matthias for the outstanding guideance throughout the day. Whenever we come back, we will definitely take you up on the mountain bike trip :-).

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2014

The hike is only about 5 minutes each way to a beautiful view. You don't need shoes for this hike (sandals are fine). The kayak trip is about 20-30 minutes to a small island where you get lunch and time to snorkel. It was nice that there were tandem kayaks because I got to ride with my husband. We got to see fish along with other sea life, such as sea cucumbers, starfish and crabs. Our tour guide was awesome. He told us all about the island if we had any questions during the car ride. He also pointed out other good tour spots, which was helpful since we were planning to rent a car the next couple days. He also snorkeled with us and found different sea creatures like the sea cucumber and starfish mentioned earlier. The views are BEAUTIFUL so bring a camera.
The only thing I wish was different would be that the hike was a little longer.
