Enjoy a 2 hour kayak excursion on Oahu’s beautiful east shore in Kailua Bay.

This guided kayak tour is ideal for beginners. Prior to launching your kayak, your tour guide will offer paddling instructions and assist in launching your kayak. The kayak is a stable sit-on-top type of kayak. The destination on this tour is Popoi’a Island, a small offshore island that is a protected seabird sanctuary. As you near the island, you will likely encounter green sea turtles as they pass through their natural feeding grounds.

Once landed on the sandy beach of Popoi’a, grab your camera and head for a 20-25 minute guided eco-hike around this unique seabird sanctuary. Keep an eye out for rock crabs, rainbow runners and a variety of marine life in and around the island’s tide pools. The group will then head back to Kailua Beach and enjoy lunch. After lunch, you’ll be supplied with boogie boards, snorkeling gear and beach mats for 2 hours of free time.
