This tour launches directly from the gorgeous, world-famous Kailua Beach but the destination is closer and quicker to get to than the 5 hour. Just a quick paddle and you will get to jump ashore and explore the new found land. The trained and experienced guide will be sure to inform and escort the group safely around. Snorkeling and kayak surfing the swell are on the agenda! The unique aspect of this tour is that because the guided portion is only 2.5 hours, the remainder of time can be spent enjoying all Kailua and Lanikai have to offer as you please.
Your adventure day begins when we pick you up from Waikiki and bring you to our store in Kailua! A quick briefing and safety instruction and you’re ready to launch! One of our trained naturalists will guide you along this beautiful coastal area to several close offshore islets. Along the way, you will see our most important resident, the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle. Your guide, well-versed in Hawaiian history, marine life, and our island’s geological formations will tell stories and impart thought provoking information about Hawaii that most visitors would love to hear about.
You will be landing your safe and stable sit-on-top kayak on our world famous beaches. Your guide is also a master paddler and instructor so you will learn the fun and safe way to paddle your kayak. If you choose to, our guide will even teach you how to catch a few waves.
Snorkelling and lunch are the first order of business, both looking back at the gorgeous beaches of Kailua and Lanikai, relaxing on white sandy beaches while sea and shore birds flock overhead and nest near-by. The windward coast of Oahu has over 12 varieties of seabirds inhabiting this flourishing coastline. While on the island you will gently trek to natural pools or a breath-taking cove. This will be a day enjoyed by all.
Our 2.5 hour tour will end at noon and if you are taking advantage of our free transportation from Waikiki, after your tour ends, you’ll be able to continue exploring on your kayak without your guide, or, turn you kayak in and enjoy 2 hours of beach time until the shuttle picks you up at the beach at 2:30 for your return to Waikiki.
