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

*Standard Kaneohe Sandbar Adventure Tour - Morning Departure

Morning Departures without Lunch

Explore the magic of Oahu's true hidden gem, the world's largest sandbar, as you join us on an adventure-filled catamaran cruise in Kaneohe. Our 70-foot catamaran takes you out to experience one of the best things to do in Honolulu when you're visiting our island, the Kaneohe sandbar. Hop abroad our 70-foot catamaran for a truly unforgettable day offshore. We'll depart from He'eia Kea Harbor located in Kaneohe Bay on Oahu's windward coast and make our way out to the sandbar, primely located in middle of the bay. An off-the-beaten-path Hawaiian island adventure, our standard Kaneohe sandbar tour offers three hours of fun in the sun surrounded by the impressive Koʻolau mountain range that dominates over 30 miles of Oahu's Windward (eastern) coastline. Live musical entertainment keeps guests entertained from the Ke’alohas—expect everything from old/new Hawaiian, reggae, country, contemporary, R&B, by local musicians born and raised from the beautiful oceanfront neighborhood of Kaneohe. 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. Looking for some fun ocean sports on Oahu? We at Kaneohe Bay Ocean Sports have got you covered with additional add-ons of access to our bumper tube and banana boat. PLEASE NOTE -- This booking is for a morning, 9:30AM departure of our standard Kaneohe sandbar catamaran cruise.

    Great group activity

    It can be hard to coordinate a vacation activity that works for a group of 20 of various ages, but not with KBOS! Each person had a wonderful and memorable time. KBOS created a seamless experience and offered many activities while at the sandbar. The crew were so kind and helpful throughout the whole experience as well. I wish we had an extra hour at the sandbar, the two hours went by fast!
