We booked a two hour canoe trip with Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks. The trip to Kailua over the other side of Oahu from Waikiki was beautiful with the steep mountains formed by an old volcano. The service at the shop and drivers were excellent. Our kayak guide, Akela, ensured we were well informed for the trip and provided interesting information... More

We spent 3 weeks in O'ahu and visited several beach parks and establisments, Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks ranks the top in our list. The entire staff is knowledable, friendly and professional. We took the tour to the Island one day, another rented paddleboards, and a couple more days relaxed at Kailua beach with boogeyboards and snorkle gear. Thank you Paul,... More

Our best experience in Oahu as a family with 3 teenagers has to be "hands down" our trip in Kailua with Kailua sailboard and kayaks, the staff was incredible, very friendly and extremely knowledgeable, thank you all for an unforgettable time.

A perfect day spent on the beautiful island of Oahu. We have done a bit of kayaking before and are in good shape, so the kayaking wasn't that hard for us, but people with bad health or in bad shape should take a shorter trip. Laura was a terrific guide! She knew a lot about the history in the area... More

Aloha Ski-Dog and I'm really sorry to hear about that. Of the thousands of people that go kayaking here every year, I've never heard of such a case. The water quality is closely monitored by the Clean Water Branch, so everything should be above their standards. I hope you are doing well and our whole crew wishes you our best! More

I can strongly recommend this place. My friend and I rented Kayaks here and had an amazing day! The service was outstanding and we got a double kayak very quickly and with no problems. 20 minutes after arriving at the store my friend and I were already on out way to the Moke Islands. The paddle took about 40 minutes... More

We went on the 2 hour guided kayaking trip. The hotel pick up from Waikiki was efficient and we enjoyed the bus trip to Kailua as it gave us an opportunity to see more of the island. Others have mentioned that you have to walk with the kayaks to the beach - this isn't arduous and we liked this novel... More
