Kailua Beach Adventures (by Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks Inc.) is the most complete water sports outfitters by Kailua Beach.

I have rented kayaks at least 3 times from KSK in the last year and a half. Great spot to paddle and snorkel, amazing clear sheltered water and beaches. Turtle sightings are very likely in the bay, just make sure to give them enough space! The staff are very knowledgable and friendly, and the rental process is very easy. Ask... More

The staff has always been extremely friendly and helpful. I've used them multiple times since 2012 for kayak rentals/tours. The guided tours are great for first-time paddlers and well worth the money. Once you're comfortable, the kayaks are a great price and the location is pretty convenient as well. They make it very easy to legally get to the Mokulua... More
