Experience the remote and breathtaking beauty of an Oahu kayak adventure along the scenic windward coast of Kualoa, one of the most historically significant places on Oahu. This Oahu kayaking, hiking and snorkeling excursion combines the scenic backdrop of the lush Hakipuu Valley and the majestic volcanic Koolau Mountain ridge with the tranquil cobalt and turquoise ocean waters of Kaneohe Bay.
Once completing your instruction for your Oahu kayak adventure, you’ll paddle along the tranquil and glassy waters of Kaneohe Bay. Due to the protected reef surrounding the area, this is one of the safest places for kayaking on Oahu.
Your journey by kayak along Kualoa, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, takes you past Mokoli'i Island to the 800-year old Molii fishpond (one of the last ancient Hawaiian fishponds). This rock-walled enclosure was hand-built by ancient Hawaiians to maintain a ready supply of live ocean fish. As part of the privately- owned Kualoa Ranch, you will have the rare opportunity to experience an ancient Hawaiian treasure that most visitors to Oahu never get to see.
As your kayak glides along the tranquil coast line of Kaneoohe Bay, your adventure includes an exclusive visit to Oahu’s hidden gem known as "Secret Island". This secluded beach in the country becomes your playground for relaxation, enjoyment and a picnic lunch. Whether you want to relax in a hammock, take a stroll around the island, or return to the ocean for a quick canoe ride, you’re certain not to want to leave.

The hike is pretty short. They take you about as high as they can, then you hike up to a small flat to look at Chinaman's Hat where you'll kayak to. Along the way you'll get information about Hawaii and it's native plants and animals.
Once back down, you'll get out the kayaks and head toward Chinaman's Hat. It's much farther away than it looked earlier from above. You can do single or double kayaks. Other than a few big waves, there was nothing to it. Everyone made it and no one fell out.
We ate sandwiches as soon as we got there, then went snorkeling. When snorkeling, there are tons of rocks that will cut you, especially when the waves get a hold of you. This is basically unavoidable if you want to see the fish. They use the rocks as cover. My wife and I had cuts on our feet, legs, and hands, but we saw some beautiful fish.
