This kayak tour starts with a paddle out the mouth of a placid river which exits into the ocean. Once on the sea, it’s a 4 mile paddle past giant sea cliffs to the Sea Cave located on a pair of Islands. The cave opening is approx. 25 feet high and after you get into the cave, it opens up into a cathedral like domed ceiling that is approximately 50 feet high. Total length of the cave from entry to end is approximately 50 yards with a bit of a curve to it so from ½ way back to the end it is pitch black with very loud whooshing water noises from the various pockets and small tubes in the rock which water and air are being forced through as each wave rises and falls within the cave.
It really is an outstandingly cool place to kayak to! When water and weather conditions are good, snorkeling in the area is outstanding with crystal clear waters and depth from 15 ft. inside the cave to approximately 50 ft. in the grotto outside the cave. The snorkeling area has small caves, sandy areas and many types of tropical fish to enjoy viewing.
After a delicious lunch on the Islands (waves permitting), it’s time for the return trip all the while enjoying the spectacular scenery offered by the windward coast and Koolau Mountains.
The length of this trip is 4 miles to the cave and 4 miles to return. This distance takes most beginner paddlers approximately 1 to 1.5 hours each way, and you can enjoy the cave area, snorkeling, and lunch at your leisure.
This Kayak Tour was created specifically for those who enjoy being outdoors in our exotic and tropical ocean environment and want to experience areas on Oahu that visitors nearly never get to see.
For this excursion, 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.These tours are conducted by Bob Twogood, a kayaking legend in Hawaii for 35 years and the President of Twogood Kayaks Hawaii, Inc.
