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 5:30pm, including Holidays.

This company is amazing! Paid for a self discovery kayaking tour, felt very well informed of all equipment and the terrain. We were also able to use bikes, boogie boards, snorkel gear and got a lunch! Very happy with this company, would definitely reccomend and use again!

Super helpful staff and quick process of getting our equipment, learning the safety features and heading out. Scenery is beautiful, and the experience is a lot of fun, but definitely not for non-athletic types. To start, you have to drag the kayak across the street, through a park, and down the beach to the water. It's heavy! The kayaking itself... More

The 5 hour kayaking tour was a great experience! Fortunately, the day we went it was really sunny so the sight was beautiful. Hayley was an enthusiastic, fun, and knowledgeable guide. Thank you Hayley!! ^_^ On Moku Nui, we got a nibble of the salty native plants, saw seabirds and their eggs, and dunked into the Queen's Bath. We did... More

We spent a wonderful day kayaking with Toby, our guide. The full moon caused the tide to be a bit too strong for going around the island, but other than that, we had a perfect day.

I'm sure all of the guides at Kailua Beach Adventures are excellent, but we absolutely LOVED our guide Kaiulani (also known as Princess). She is a Hawaiian local and was not only knowledgeable about the wildlife in the area, but also talked at length about the history of Hawaii and shared stories that were passed down from her grandmother. We... More

For the price, it's not as exciting as it is made out to be. We googled and KBA was the first site on the list. There were a couple options, but we were interested in what they advertised as a "kayak and snorkel tour." It's seemed right for the price, so we called and booked. The man on the phone... More

Aloha Jayme and thank you for your review. We are really happy that you enjoyed the guided tour with Katie, she is a really terrific guide! We are sorry about the rest of your experience and hope that your overall trip was still enjoyable. We do offer snorkeling on our Twin Islands Guided Kayak Tour, whereas the 2-Hour Excursion snorkeling... More

Katie was our guide for the kayak tour to Flat Island and back... and she was fantastic with both the narrated tour along the way and especially on Flat Island talking to us (including the kids) about the local flora, fauna and history. She was very helpful with the Flat Island beach landing ensuring that our two 2 person kayaks... More

We rented kayaks for a week from Kailua Beach Adventures. The whole experience was very convenient and positive. I booked the kayaks on line, they dropped them off at the place we were staying and picked them up at the end of the week. Renting the kayaks was quick and easy. They were very flexible with the drop off and... More
