Overview

Snorkel in Kaneohe Bay off a small catamaran during this 3-hour cruise from Oahu. Leaving from He'eia State Park, visit Sunken City, Coconut Island, Turtle Canyon or the Sunken Island sandbar with an expert local guide. Learn how to sail or hop off the boat, using the snorkeling equipment provided, and explore Oahu's underwater world. Back at the beach, enjoy an included barbecue lunch with your small group, limited to 5 people to ensure personalized attention. Round-trip hotel transportation is provided.
  • 3-hour Oahu sailing tour from He’eia State Park, from Waikiki
  • Sail with an experience guide to various beautiful locations with excellent snorkeling opportunities
  • Help the guide to trim the sails or steer the boat if you’re interested in learning to sail
  • Visit the Sunken Island sandbar in Kaneohe Bay (if conditions allow)
  • Snorkel around pristine patch reefs where you may spot sea turtles, rays and a variety of colorful fish
  • Includes hotel pickup and drop off from Waikiki, all gear, snacks, drinks and a beachside barbecue lunch
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of five people makes for a flexible and intimate tour with your professional guide
Following pickup in the morning at your hotel in Waikiki, travel to He'eia to meet your captain. 

While still on dry land, listen to a short safety briefing and gather all the necessary equipment, including snorkeling gear and life jackets. Board your small catamaran, equipped with coolers and trampoline decks, and take off into Kaneohe Bay. You can make yourself comfortable on the trampolines and enjoy the ride or ask your captain if you'd like a sailing lesson. No experience is necessary.

Possibilities for the day's destination include Sunken City, the Sunken Island sand bar, Coconut Island or Turtle Canyon. Depending on the day's conditions and the group's interests, you can help your captain decide where sail. Since the tour is limited to five passengers, you are guaranteed personalized attention from your guide. 

Regardless of where you end up, there are bound to be phenomenal snorkeling opportunities. Don your snorkeling gear and hop off the boat to see tropical fish, sea turtles, manta rays, spotted eagle rays and other marine life.

After a couple hours of exploring the bay, head back to the beach for a delicious barbecue lunch and subsequent drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.

AMAZING

Kevin was the captain of our cruise and he was absolutely amazing. Including Kevin, there were 4 people on board for our trip. He was very knowledgeable of the area and was very skilled on the water. He dodged rain clouds as needed and he gave advice for snorkeling to maximize our experience. He was all about making it the best experience for us! He is also a skilled photographer haha. We snorkeled with sea turtles and manta rays and relaxed on a sand bar. Easily one of the best things I did on my trip to Oahu—I cannot recommend this enough!!!! Worth every penny.

We LOVED this excursion, it was less of a tour more of an adventure. If you are on the fence, don’t be. You won’t regret this trip!

THE BEST sailing experience ever!!! This is a sailing adventure not to be missed, whether you are an experienced sailor or not. Everything from pick up, sailing, BBQ, to drop off was excellent! Sailed all over Kaneohe Bay with guide Parker Johnson--experienced cat sailor, and full of interesting local info. Great way to see scores of turtles, and sea life. Zoe the driver, and all the staff are friendly, and totally customer service oriented. Can't say enough superlatives about this tour. Tom Gadzala San Diego

Best experience ever!!! Our guide, Parker, was super knowledgeable and took us to spots where we saw A LOT of turtles at least 50 of all sizes - I'm not exaggerating and even manta rays! We also got to snorkel with turtles next to the coral reef with no other tourists around, which was great I am now in love with turtles. The adventure was very personalized we got a sailing boat a tour guide for ourselves and geared towards us for example, we asked Parker to tell us about sailing since we were interested and he gave us insights throughout the trip. Even the food was awesome no sandwiches or chips, actual home-made local food : This tour completely exceeded my and my husband's expectations totally worth it! Also, they are a non-profit so it felt great contributing to their cause. The guys at Holokai Kayak and Snorkel Adventure were really great!
