Overview
More
Paddle through Kawela Bay in an area that in ancient times was reserved for the Ali'i or hawaiian royalty. View beautiful coral reefs, tropical fish, and WWII wreckage just 3 feet below the Peekaboo™ window on your kayak. Stop at a honu "cleaning station" and watch as some of our green sea turtles get cleaned. For adventure seekers you have the option to surf your kayaks on small 1' waves or try out the sport your guides invented: Stand Up Kayaking! Explore the secluded Kawela Beach and hike through the jungle tunnel to explore the WWII bunker at Protection Point. Swim in the calm waters of the bay or bird watch for endangered species on one of the many hiking trails through the forest. Relax and enjoy the local refreshments provided for you by your guide. Your keiki will help you search for the buried treasure with the map they find on the trip. Along the shore you can see lava tubes, small sea caves and blowholes. While kayaking, watch out for the two dozen resident sea turtles the Turtle Bay is named after. Visit the "Lost" Banyan Tree where the hit TV show Lost, Pirates of the Caribbean IV and Hunger Games 2 were filmed. Optionally you can decide to stay longer at Kawela Bay and your guide can provide you with a walking map of the 2 mile trail back to Turtle Bay Resort.

It was beautifull. Dolfins were swimming along and under the kayaks. To snorkel was great. The water was very clear and Joe and Dylan made sure we had a great time.

We had the best time with Shaka and the grandkids loved it too. The sea turtles were amazing but getting to see a baby hammerhead shark was their highlight! We will definitely call Shaka the next time we're in Hawaii☺

Tour was great and water was relaxing. They picked us up at Turtle Bay resort on time and shuttled us to the beach. Easy to understand instructions. Guides were very knowledgable.
