Half-Day Kaneohe Bay Sandbar Self-Guided Kayaking Experience

Location Oahu, Hawaii, USA
$96.00
This is an experience gift voucher. The recipient will book the experience after they redeem the gift voucher.
Overview
- You have full control of your schedule (not possible with most boat tours or similar group experiences).
- Kayaks are much more beginner friendly and more stable than stand-up paddleboards, especially when there is any type of wind.
- Kaneohe Bay is kayak friendly with no large waves (due to Kaneohe Bay’s barrier reef) and a prevailing breeze throughout the afternoon that pushes towards the shoreline (rather than out to sea!).

Ahu’olaka, also known as the Kaneohe Sandbar, is a visually stunning, family-friendly destination on the island of Oahu. The sandbar is located on the east side of the island which is more commonly known as the Windward side.

The sandbar is extremely wide and large. It is about 1 mile (1.6 km) wide and 3 miles (4.8 km) long. You see the lush, rolling, monumental Ko’olau Mountains on one side and the vast oceanic horizon on the other. The sandbar itself is a ridge of white, soft sand that becomes visible during low tide.

The paddle from the He’eia Kea Boat Harbor to the Kaneohe Sandbar takes about 45 minutes. The waters are a deep teal and you can enjoy the gradient change from the dark blue-green all the way to a brilliant white as you make your way closer to the bar.

Our Kaneohe Sandbar self-guided package comes with a drybag and snorkeling gear so feel free to bring your own beverages, snacks, sunscreen, and protective clothing to keep you comfortably adventuring all throughout the day.
