*Standard Kaneohe Adventure Sandbar Tour - Afternoon Departure

Afternoon Departures with Lunch

Departing from He'eia Kea Harbor in Kaneohe Bay, our afternoon departure of the standard Kaneohe sandbar adventure tour is ideal for those looking to experience some fun ocean sports on Oahu. Hop aboard our 70-foot catamaran and head to the Kaneohe sandbar, one of the best things to do in Honolulu when you're visiting our island. Considered to be the world's largest sandbar, this is Oahu's true hidden gem. Let the sounds of live music performed by our talented group of local Hawaiian musicians, soothe you as we set sail. Our destination? The Kaneohe sandbar in the middle of Kaneohe Bay. A snorkeler's dream at high tide, the Kaneohe Bay sandbar lies smack dab in the middle of the scenic bay, offering an idyllic, one-of-a-kind setting to visitors looking to experience the wonders of Oahu's warm Pacific Ocean waters. When the tides turn, the Kaneohe sandbar turns into a milelong fine white sand beach, ideal for soaking up some much-needed vitamin D or playing an invigorating game of water volleyball. After an hour or two of maritime adventures, head back to the catamaran for our all-inclusive lunch—each afternoon program includes a hearty lunch comprised of croissant sandwiches, freshly cut pineapple, salad, and chips.

    AMAZING EXPERIENCE

    Me and my husband took this tour during our anniversary trip this year. we had the best time! Such a friendly and reassuring crew. The snorkeling was a life changing experience. They had paddle boarding, etc. Kaloni (I believe how you spell it) was the host/musician on board. He was the best!

    Wonderful time at the sandbar!

    Everything about the excursion was amazing! The boat was very spacious, and I loved the live music on the way to and from the sandbar - a great plus that I wasn't expecting at all! All of the staff on the boat were very friendly and helpful. The sandbar itself was really fun - I especially loved the snorkeling! It was so nice to just show up and have all the activities out and ready for us to enjoy once there. Great experience overall!
