Kayak Oahu

Oahu Kayak

Experienced or non experienced kayakers are welcome to go on a self guided kayaking tour launching from Kauilua at Lanikai Beach. This lays directly across from the state seabird sanctuary also home to a 33 foot cliff jump into the ocean. If you are still feeling adventurous kayak over to Waimanalo bay – a dramatic, rarely visited bay with the scenic Koolau Mountain cliffs as the backdrop. Here, you will find the protected island of Manana (rabbit island), preserved for the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal.

Self-guided kayak adventure with your own transportation.

This area is full of live coral reef that kayakers can snorkel amongst by sliding off of their kayak into the water. The reef is teeming with a variety of sea life, fish, crevasses, caverns and even a few portions of a fighter plane from WW2. There are many secret tide pools and sanctuaries to explore so bring your snorkels or dive gear.

This is a good time to be on the look-out for Humpback whales, Spinner Dolphins, Green Sea Turtles, and of course, the elusive Monk Seal. Then cruise down-wind along Lanikai Beach for a possible second snorkeling session, and on to Popo’ia Island for an eco-hike before paddling to Kailua Beach Park.
