Kayak, hike and snorkel combo adventure to Kualoa on Oahu
Following pickup at your Waikiki hotel, travel to the Hakipuu Valley for the first portion of your full-day adventure.
Take a brief, easy hike to a scenic lookout point at the entrance to Hakipuu Valley. From there, you'll be able to see the stunning landscape that will be your playground for the day; coral reefs in turquoise waters and lush forested valleys.
Receive a safety briefing and kayaking instruction from your adventure guide. Don your life vest and launch your boat into the glassy, protected waters of Kaneohe Bay. Paddle along Kualoa, which is listed on the National Register of Historical Places, past Mokoli'i island to the centuries-old Molii fishpond. This hidden gem was hand-built by the ancient Hawaiians as a place to keep a steady supply of ocean fish handy. It is now part of the private Kualoa Ranch and is not frequently accessed by tourists.
After departing the fish pond, continue to 'Secret Island', a secluded beach nestled in the island countryside. Paddle around at your leisure, walk on the beach or don your snorkel equipment and explore the area's underwater world. Enjoy a relaxed picnic lunch before returning to your launch point to end your day of discovery with drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.
