We had originally booked a kayak trip but it was cancelled because of recent legislation so our concierge recommended this instead. It sounded like fun so I booked it for the four of us (2 teens, 2 adults). We were picked up from our hotel in Waikiki by Joy who is the wife of one of the guides. She was... More

Took the family on the 3 hr morning tour to Mokulua Islands by canoe. If kayaking, this trip is not recommended for young kids due to the distance and often windy conditions. However, by canoe, the whole family was able to ride/paddle together with an outboard motor doing virtually all the work with windy conditions. We met Chris, our guide,... More

We had a great time canoeing with these guys. They took us out to the twin island across from Lanikai. They were great from start to finish. I'd highly recommend them. Of all the activities we did in Hawaii this was the one with the least planning and the most payoff. Chris was really responsive when we were trying to... More

The 4 hour Kayak to the Moks was exhiliarating and a good workout. The high winds and waves added just a little danger and extra excitement. Our guides were professional, taught us all the safety precautions and encouraged and helped us through what was truly an adventure, Thank-you to Andy, Ka'iu & Greier. Also, Ka'iu had grown up going to... More

My husband and I took this terrific outing from Kailua Beach to the Mokulua (Twin) Islands yesterday. This is our first trip to Kailua and while we enjoyed the opportunity to paddle a bit, it was also nice to sit back and let the outboard motor do the work for a good part of the trip. The views from the... More

We took out the sailing canoe with Chris and Wes for an amazing day in the ocean and on the beach. This was my family's favorite part of our trip to Hawaii. They made the trip fun and interesting, with lots of good jokes and great information about the area. The hike on the islands we visited was incredible, and... More

My partner and I got connected to Kailua Ocean Adventures through friends. Initially, we had planned on renting kayaks and exploring some of the islands... then I recalled how much work it is to kayak - and that was in stable water, not the ocean! Enter Chris and his crew (in this case, a gentleman by the name of Wes).... More

My girlfriend and I have been to Hawaii several times and I have to say that the Kailua Ocean Adventures experience was by far the most fun that we've ever had on a tour. It was three hours of pure fun and relaxation, that we both wish could have gone on longer! We stumbled across the store while waiting to... More

My husband and I have tried stand-up paddle and kayaks in Kailua, but this was a lot more fun. We were expecting to be paddling a lot more, but were pleasantly surprised when we heard the little motor start up! Chris and Boar (sp?) were very informative, and had lots of jokes. It felt more like a boat trip with... More

This was the most amazing trip I have ever been on. We laughed, had fun, and enjoyed Hawaii and its culture from a side that few see. It was definately the best money I spent in Hawaii and was THE highlight of my trip to the islands. Having done many similar tours in the past the friendly tour guides really... More
