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 you meet us at our shop to check-in . 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, 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.
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.
