Embark on a mesmerizing journey to the heart of Oahu’s marine paradise with the Kaneohe Sandbar Snorkeling Tour. This exclusive afternoon adventure, a Badge of Excellence awardee priced at $149.00, promises an unforgettable experience in the azure waters of Kaneohe Bay.
The tour kicks off at Heʻeia Kea Boat Harbor, where the ‘Captain Bruce’ sign marks your gateway to an aquatic wonder. The 2 hour and 45-minute escapade starts with a brief, scenic 15-minute sail to the Kaneohe Sandbar, a majestic, submerged oasis that’s not easily accessible without a boat.
Snorkeling and More
Upon arrival, you’ll be equipped with a snorkeling mask and mouthpiece, ready to plunge into the clear waters. The sandbar, renowned for its thriving turtle population, offers a rare chance to spot these gentle creatures in their natural habitat. But that’s not all – your time at the sandbar can be spent swimming, soaking up the sun, or even trying your hand at stand-up paddle boarding.
The tour provides essential gear, including life jackets and paddle boards. Snacks like granola bars, chips, and the local favorite, spam musubi, keep your energy up, while a community cooler (with limited space) is available for your soft drinks. Remember, while alcoholic beverages and lunch aren’t included, you’re welcome to bring your own.
