    Best activity of our vacation

    This was the activity that I had the highest expectations for, and it did not disappoint. The crew is amazing, and the live music made the trip to the sandbar and back even better. I booked the all inclusive afternoon tour with a bumper ride and banana boat ride. The bumper ride and banana boat ride were my teen sons favorite part of the tour. There are so many activities to do at the sandbar that my only complaint is that I wished we could have stayed out longer. They have kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling, volleyball, and a sunbathing platform. Before we got to the sandbar, I wasn’t sure if we were going to snorkel in deep water, but there is actually a reef with lots of tropical fish, and it was incredibly shallow. I also had a small concern that the sandbar would be filled with people partying based on some photos that I saw online. However, this wasn’t the case at all. We had our own “private” area with plenty of room to explore. The crew was lively and fun, and made sure that everybody was being taken care of. This is a MUST DO activity, and KBOS is the best tour company at Kaneohe Bay Sandbar. Definitely book this tour!
