Full description
Upon checking in at He'eia State Park in Kane'ohe, your guides will outfit you with waterproof dry bags, snorkeling equipment, and life jackets. After an on-shore safety and educational briefing and paddling instruction, take to the water in sit-on-top kayaks as your guide leads you through the calm waters of Kane'ohe Bay to one of the most pristine snorkeling destinations on Oahu.

Once together at the snorkeling site, your professional, lifeguard certified guide will also provide instruction and tips for a safe and enjoyable snorkeling experience. While out on the water, your guide will also provide a light snack and drink, and talk about the history of the bay and its marine life.

After roughly three hours on the water for kayaking, snorkeling, and soaking up the beauty of Kane'ohe Bay and the surrounding Ko'olau mountain range, return to shore at He'eia State Park where a delicious BBQ lunch awaits. Enjoy one of the most scenic vistas on Oahu from the park's elevated peninsula overlooking Kane'ohe Bay.
