Explore the best of Kaneohe sandbar with this all-inclusive catamaran cruise by Kaneohe Bay Ocean Sports. Departing from He'eia Kea Boat Harbor in Kaneohe, our three-hour ocean sports-fueled tours to the Kaneohe Bay sandbar, with tours are offered every Tuesday to Saturday from 9:30AM to 12:30PM. Our brand new 70-foot catamaran takes you and your closest friends and ohana (family) out to the middle of Kaneohe Bay, a reef-protected cove on Oahu's windward coast, where adventures await at the world's largest sandbar. Stunning unimpeded views of the rugged Koʻolau mountains serve as the perfect backdrop for a day out on the calm Pacific Ocean waters that are teeming with aquatic life, including Honu (hawaiian green sea turtle), reef fish, and if you're truly lucky, you'll even get to see monk seals lounging on the reef or manta rays occasionally swimming alongside the sandbar. Our live music feature offers guests the ability to listen to the tunes of local Hawaiian musicians as you soak up the warm Hawaiian rays aboard our new floating platform, anchored just off the sandbar. PLEASE NOTE: in addition to all our other ocean sporting activities offered, our all-inclusive Kaneohe sandbar adventure tour includes the use of our bumper tube and banana boat, perfect with the kids in tow.

    Amazing experience

    Had a blast with this excursion. Banana boat ride was cool and snorkeling was great. The staff made us feel like family they went out of there way. The sand was white and the water was turquoise and clear. We felt safe and comfortable in the staff hands. We definitely will come back. Mahalo!!!
