When you're in Hawaii, we know that what you really want to do is get out and explore. With the help of a local guide, we'll take you on a paddling adventure like none other. After a brief safety orientation, we'll set off for Kailua Beach. The water here is about as turquoise as turquoise gets and it's no wonder that this picturesque spot is consistently rated one of the top beaches in America. It's here that you will officially embark on the adventure of a lifetime!

The first leg of our journey is from Kailua Beach to the Mokulua Islands, approximately 1 mile. These twin peaks are visible from the shore, so your destination will never be off of your radar! Depending on the conditions of the day as well as your group's experience, we'll be paddling for approximately 1 hour.

Once we arrive you are in for a treat! Lucky for you your guide is a local and knows the best spot to enjoy a Hawaiian picnic lunch on the Mokulua Islands. This area is home to some of the most calm waters in Hawaii as well as a wide variety of marine life and colorful coral. Cool off with a dip in the water and put on your snorkel gear so you can get a glimpse of this bustling underwater world! Your guide will direct you to a hidden spot where you can expect to see sea turtles, sea birds, as well as an array of tropical fish. Before we leave these tranquil islands behind us, you may want to enjoy one of the many natural tide pools, close your eyes and feel your worries leave your body.
