We wanted to do something on our own so we rented a couple of kayaks and paddled out to an island. I appreciated that the store h ad uv clothing. It totally saved my upper half from the perils of the Hawaiian Sun. Friendly staff, good times. Thanks!

Having been to Hawaii several times I haven't had the chance to go kayaking. Taking advantage of the summer weather (and escape the winter chills of Sydney) I've heard so much on what a beautiful spot Kailua was so I thought what a way to spend a day & try my hand at kayaking. I couldn't have been more captivated.... More

Had a memorable experience kayaking with my family in Kailua to the bird island. Princess, our guide, was absolutely wonderful. She was very patient with my family as some were not strong kayakers. She was very knowledgeable about the history and ecology of the area. Overall, the entire operation ran very smoothly from the free lunch (included with the kayak... More

My girlfriend and I were staying in nearby Lanikai and stopped in to this place on a whim. It hadn't been part of our plans, but we knew we needed to rent snorkel gear for Hanauma Bay the next day. We ended up leaving with a two person kayak, and it was one of the most thrilling experiences I've had... More

I had a great day paddling with Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks. They were well organised and very well led by two capable and friendly guides. Equipment was good, and a left handed paddle was found when I asked - which really made the day work for me. We paddled to a nearby island and back. The actual paddle was fun... More

Our Kailua kayak tour was definitely one of our highlights of our Hawaii trip! Our family (2 adults, 2 kids, ages 15 and 11) has kayaked on rivers before but never out in the ocean so we thought it would be fun to give it a try. Our 11-year old was a little nervous but our guide put him right... More

Our guide was awesome...The entire trip was fantastic. My fiance and I had never been on a kayak before, but the guide helped us out. He was extremely patient. Location was great. It is kind of a pain that it isn't right on the beach, but due to local regulations, commercial activity is not allowed on the beach (to keep... More
