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.

    Great afternoon at the sandbar!

    Our family enjoyed our visit to the sandbar. Only improvement would be the food. We did another cruise the day before on another area of the island and for about the same price, we had great Hawaiian food, drinks, snacks and open bar. That's the only thing we couldn't rate as excellent as the staff, environment, and set up was great!

    Fun packed adventure!

    Great activities provided for the price. Comes with food and live music. I’ve been to a couple of boat tours and this by the far the best one.

    Best Kaneohe experience

    I took my family to Kaneohe and KBOS did a wonderful job. The crew are super friendly. They would take the time answering or explain things to make sure everyone is safe while at the sand bar. Definitely fun for the family.
