OAHU SNORKELING TOUR TO A SANDBAR & REEFS
Begin your day in paradise with a scenic, 35-minute bus tour from bustling Waikiki to beautiful Kaneohe Bay. Driving down there is a lovely view of the bay, surrounded by the majestic Ko’olau Mountains and peppered with popular landmarks such as Gilligan’s Island and Chinaman’s Hat.
Next, we are welcomed aboard Captain Bob’s catamaran for a water adventure and relaxing day on the sea cruising through the bay’s living barrier reef. We stop at two snorkeling locations, enjoy a fabulous BBQ lunch, and more!
Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii
Captain Bob’s Picnic Sail Adventure Features
Coral and Tropical Fish
Inside the bay there are many types of coral reefs (patch, fringing and barrier) that the rare “Honu” or green sea turtle calls home, but, they’re not the only inhabitants. More than 3000 species of exotic sea life live amongst these gorgeous coral reefs!
View Local Sealife and Corals
Experience the beauty of the ocean with our incredible wildlife. You'll have the chance to witness the elusive green sea turtles (honu) and occasionally spot playful dolphins. Don't forget to keep an eye out for our state fish, the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a. As you explore the vibrant underwater world, you'll come across a variety of coral. Remember, despite its strong appearance, coral is incredibly delicate, so please refrain from walking on it. Let's protect and appreciate these natural wonders together.
A Wonderful Family Activity
Escape to the renowned Kaneohe Sand Bar for a day of relaxation. Experience the sheer beauty of a 6-mile stretch of pristine sand nestled in the crystal-clear waters of the Pacific Ocean. This is Hawaii's ultimate haven for beach volleyball enthusiasts, snorkeling enthusiasts, and those seeking a refreshing swim. As we possess the exclusive permit for a one-of-a-kind spot on the sandbar, there's no need to contend with the masses. We’ll have a fabulous picnic lunch, then hop back on the boat for a snorkeling adventure. Yes, there will be many photo opportunities!
