    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.

      Awesome crews!

      This was our first time at the sandbar. We were reluctant to go with this tour since they didn’t seem to have a lot of reviews. Turn out, we had the best time ever. The crews were very attentive and entertaining. They had life vest, snorkeling set, kayak and paddle board for you to play with. There’s also live music on board. Overall, our kids think this is one of the best day on our vacation. We highly recommend this tour!

      Bad Weather Day

      It is not the fault of KBOS, but it was cloudy and windy and raining and cool on the day we went. That is unusual because it is normally so hot that you want to stay on the boat in the shade. Unfortunately, we did not have much flexibility to reschedule. I think we would have had a 100% better time if it was at least partly sunny and warmer. Also, when you sign up for the packages, it is somewhat misleading what you get, and what the differences are. For instance, the Banana/Bumper Boat is definitely worth the extra $25 per person.

      Great outing with the family

      We had a fantastic time on this KBOS tour! The crew was super friendly and the musicians were awesome. The crew was very helpful with helping us get on/off the kayaks and banana boat since we had kids. A special shout out to Preston who acted so quickly when my kiddo got a jellyfish sting. Jeremiah (one of the musicians) took some time to talk to her about his experience with stings and helped ease her mind. The kids raved about the banana boat experience and had a great time snorkeling and paddle boarding.
