Kama’aina Kids Kayak & Snorkel Eco-Ventures

Aloha!  We are open with limited hours!  At this time, only equipment rentals for self-guided activities are available Tuesday-Saturday, from 8am-4pm.  No guided tours are being offered at this time. 

We are located at He'eia State Park right on Kane'ohe Bay with access to the famous, one-of-a-kind "Sunken Island" sandbar, spectacular reefs, and stunning views. Its calm, protected waters are home to Oahu's healthiest coral reef and abundant marine life.

Our a la carte rental option is the most economical way to get exactly what you need and only what you need to explore Kane'ohe Bay on your own! We have single-person and tandem kayak rentals. And they're all set up right on the water's edge, ready to go! No need to drag, carry, or drive your kayak anywhere!

When you check in at He'eia State Park's office located in the main banquet hall building, our staff will show you to your kayak on our waterfront. We'll also give you a personalized safety and instructional briefing with your waterproof map of the bay so you will know before you go, and be ready for a safe, fun paddling adventure. We'll show you how to get to the famous Kane'ohe Sandbar, as well as many other pristine, hidden patch reefs that offer amazing snorkeling away from the crowds!

Open Monday-Saturday, 8:00am-4:00pm, closed Sundays and federal holidays

If booking within 7 days of the activity, please email customer service at OahuTA@hgvc.com.
