We went our with our 10 and 12 year old. We arrived in the morning and we were waiting for the rest of the group to arrive. Originally we were going to go in 2 kayaks but then they said that my hubby was to big to go with one of the boys. But instead of giving us 2 singles... More

Aloha Katarina and thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the kayaking and lunch and I am sorry that carrying the kayaks was difficult for your family. It is ideal to have one adult per small child for this reason. I hope you guys were able to have a relaxing day afterwards and please let us know if... More

We rented kayaks from this place and kayaked out to Flat Island and another island. The service was fast and efficient, as well as friendly and informative. I wish we had taken the double kayak, rather than two singles which they recommended for beginners, but we have kayaked quite a bit so opted for the singles. Mostly moderately easy kayaking... More

My friend and I rented paddle board for a half day. The staff was extremely friendly and knowledgable especially Paul. I will definitely rent here again on my next visit to Oahu. Mahalo

Kailua Adventures was the perfect way to learn more about the island in an active way. Our tour guide John made the experience even better! I would recommend the kayak tour to everyone and anyone!

My family and I decided at the last min that we wanted to kayak out to the Mokulua Islands. It was Christmas weekend and I knew it was going to be busy and wasn't even sure if they would have any equipment left. We were right, it was very busy. But even with crowd the staff was incredibly patient, helpful... More

We signed up for the 1pm guided kayak tour but the day of we got a call at 7am asking if we could do the 915am instead. He said it was due to bad weather and high tides coming later that day. We were hesitant but went along with it. We now realized it was because he didn't want to... More

Aloha Betsy and thanks for joining us on our 2-Hour Excursion. The weather conditions on that Wednesday were as follows: 1. A building North swell from around 340 degrees was already showing on the Waimea Bouy by 9 am. It can typically only take a few hours for the swells to travel down the coast and show up on Kailua's... More

I love this place especially, the lady who took us kayaking,"Princess", is her name. She made the water experience so great not only taking us and showing us how but she gave us a guided tour. She went over and beyond what she is paid to do. Princess is why I will go back to the islands, no doubt as... More
