Kaneohe Bay Ocean Sports - Experience the Magic of Oahu's Kaneohe Sandbar - Book a Catamaran Tour Today

*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.

    A highlight of our trip

    From the weather, the live musicians, the staff, and the activities- everything was well organized and made for an amazing experience. The sandbar itself is worth visiting and it was nice to be able to enjoy the different activities at your own pace. Thank you for a wonderful time!
