The Itinerary for the Guided Group Tours and the Private Guided Kayak Tour is pretty much the same BUT ON OUR PRIVATE TOUR YOU AND YOUR PARTY WILL GET YOUR OWN GUIDE TO FULFILL ALL YOUR PRIVATE WISHES.
Your fun-filled adventure begins when we pick you up from your hotel in Waikiki, between 7:30 and 8:30 AM or check into our shop between 8.00 and 8:30 AM if you have your own transportation. Here you will meet your kayak guide, who is Lifeguard, CPR, and First Aid certified. After a brief introduction you will be outfitted with all of the necessary gear for the trip including life-jackets (PFD’s), lunchboxes with food (on our Exclusive Tour you could chose between several delicious Local Kono’s Sandwiches), dry bags, and snorkel gear. After a thorough briefing of the area and some basic instruction on how to kayak, it’s time to get to the beach. All the kayaks and paddles are already loaded up so a short drive to the beach is all that’s left.
Upon arrival, you will bring your kayaks over to the water where our expert guide will help you launch safely and securely. Now it’s time to set out for the Mokulua Island sea-bird sanctuaries, which is about a one hour paddle through beautiful blue waters surrounded by the serene natural beauty of Hawaii. Upon landing on the islands peaceful beach, you will begin your discovery of this pristine protected island through the professional supervision of the guide.
The agenda includes lunch on the island while facing the famous Lanikai / Kailua beach and learning about the majestic history of the wildlife, marine life, and formation of the land. Afterwards, you’re free to go snorkeling, often being joined by Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles which are frequently seen here or take a short hike around the back to visit a hidden tide pool (known as Queen’s Bath) on Moku Nui. On many days kaykers may get to witness the Hawaiian Monk Seal basking on shore or take a trip to a secret cove where they can snorkel or cliff jump! If conditions permit you will have a chance to kayak surf the waves under the instruction of the guide.
After everyone has had their fun on the island it’s time to launch again. On days when snorkeling conditions on Moku Nui are not optimal, we take a quick paddle across to Lanikai to enjoy the beach and snorkel there as well. By this point it will already have been a few hours of fun and adventure and be time to head back to the shop. A short paddle with the wind at our back will land us back at Kailua Beach and heading back to our shop around 2:30 PM. You will be on your way by 3:00 PM, or our driver will have you back to your hotel by around 3:45 PM.

ON OUR EXCLUSIVE GUIDED KAYAK TOUR you will choose the area of your tour from several possibilities that offer the Crème De la Crème of kayaking on Oahu. You may choose to paddle up a meandering river through a Tropical Rain Forest, or paddle alongside 400 foot sea Cliffs and explore intimate little coves that people don’t often get to visit, or maybe an excursion to a mammoth sea-cave that you’ll paddle deep inside, or along a coastline of long beautiful white sandy beaches and exotic little tropical islands where you and your guide will be the only humans in sight.
