Kailua Beach Adventures (by Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks Inc.) is the most complete water sports outfitters by Kailua Beach. Specializing in guided kayak tours, kayak rentals, snorkeling, stand-up-paddling, boogie boards, surfing and bike rentals, KBA looks to share their 'stoke' for the ocean. As one of the only companies allowed to hold permits to kayak to the Mokulua "Twin Islands" and Flat Island, the choice is clear. The pro-shop carries all of the latest brands of sunglasses, UV-Shirts and beach accessories, and is located 100 yards from Kailua Beach Park. Free parking, showers and dressing rooms are available on site. Open 7 days/week from 8am to 5pm, including Holidays. No Kayak Rentals or Island Tours are permitted in Kailua on Sundays but we do rent paddle boards and all other equipment.

This was our second time back to Hawaii & we couldn't leave our vacation without signing up for this amazing tour again. This time around we did the 2 hour kayak tour & visited flat island. It was pure beauty! Let's me start off with how amazing all the employees are. We were picked up at our hotel by one... More

Wow Jenn, we love to hear feedback like this! Hayley is an amazing guide and our staff cannot help but be friendly working in an office like Kailua Bay. Thank you again for coming back and maybe we can take you stand up paddling on your third adventure! More

This was by far one of the most fun afternoons that we had in Honolulu. The guides were knowledgable, friendly, experienced and made you feel safe at all times. We kayaked to a small bird sanctuary and have an informative short tour about the island. The only slight challenge that you should be aware of is that you do have... More

We walked into their shop with shave ice from Island Snow to ask about renting kayaks. We kayak a lot in Alaska, but had never gone out in the tropics. We chatted with one of the women behind the counter. She was enthusiastic, but it was almost like she was trying to scare us about the wind and water in... More

My friend and I had a wonderful experience with our tour guide Sam from Kailua Beach Adventures! We booked our tour with Riley from the Hyatt Regency concierge desk very easily and were picked up at the hotel by the tour operators with no issues. After a short ride to Kailua up the Pali Hwy, we were met by Sam... More

Well organized outfit with easy procedures to get on the water and exploring Kailua Bay. Equipment is good, guides were great, and the kayaking activity was for all ages and all abilities. Because Kailua Bay prohibits commercial activity, you lug your kayak down to the beach. The carrier system they use means the kayak is almost weightless, a staff member... More

My family (two adults, two younger kids) signed up for a guided two-hour sea kayak trip, followed by lunch and a couple more free hours with the use of Kailua's equipment (boogie boards, etc.). It was a very busy morning when we arrived, but our guide, Toby, got us checked-in quickly and ready with the equipment we needed. We've kayaked... More
