    Fun afternoon in a beautiful place

    My husband and I really enjoyed the snorkeling tour! I liked that it was at a sandbar instead of jumping off a boat into deep water. I loved the paddle boarding too. The scenery was breathtaking, and I would have liked to stay and relax longer. Everything was well organized and the crew was very helpful and friendly!

    Aloha, Thank you so much for joining our tour. We are so happy to know that your experience with us was wonderful. We agree that Kaneohe Sandbar is such a nice place for boating! You can enjoy ocean activities in a shallow area instead of jumping off a boat into deep water. We appreciate your kind words about our staff. Your review has been shared with the entire team! Please visit the bay again. We’d love to take you back to the Sandbar. Until then, a hui hou🌺

    Best part of our trip

    We booked this adventure after being recommended it over and over. It was the only thing I actually booked ahead of time so I could guarantee a spot! My kids have never been on a boat and I wasn’t sure how the whole experience would go but they both loved the ride. This was the only time we saw turtles on our trip and the guys on the boat were so great and really wanted to make sure everyone had fun and enjoyed their day. Would definitely do it again!

    Thank you for joining our tour and for your reservation a head of time! Kaneohe bay is the best place on Oahu for the boat ride with kids since the water is very calm, and shallower on the sandbar area. We are so happy to hear that your children enjoyed their first yacht day! Our tours sell out fast during the peak season. We recommend to book early especially for summertime. Thank you again for the fantastic message. We'd love to welcome you back aboard again soon. A hui hou🌺
