*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.

    First time at KBSB!

    I’ve never been to a sandbar, so visiting Kaneohe bay sand bar was exciting! Marcus, and the rest of the crew were so friendly and accommodating. Also what’s great about the standard tour is that it includes stand up paddle boarding, or sitting, snorkeling, kayaking, and the nice floating platform! It was so cool to swim out in the middle of Kaneohe bay. Also per Marcus’ recommendation Coral Kingdom had really good shrimp plates and huli huli chicken to eat for lunch after the morning tour.

    Great family trip

    We have a family of 5. Our oldest is 11 and youngest is 5. Everyone had an awesome time. The oldest went straight to the kayaks and then went snorkeling while the younger ones enjoyed some time on their cool platform. So easy since it’s a sandbar and it’s only waist deep! The best. Great for families. The staff and musicians were super friendly and helpful. The musicians were soo good! We had a great time. Thanks!!
