Hike, Kayak, and Snorkel Adventure at Kualoa

This unique Hawaii ocean kayak tour is set against a breathtaking rainforest backdrop. On this kayaking trip, you will experience the remote and breathtaking beauty of Kualoa, one of the most historically significant places on Oahu, while enjoying a kayak tour along Hawaii's scenic windward coast, including Chinamans Hat. Marvel at scenic views of the lush Hakipuu Valley, the majestic volcanic Koolau Mountain ridge, and the tranquil cobalt and turquoise ocean waters of Kaneohe Bay.

Your adventure will begin with a short hike to a scenic overlook at the entrance to Hakipuu Valley. Here you'll have the chance to capture an aerial perspective of the breathtaking beauty and landscape, from its forested valleys to its inviting ocean reef waters. You'll see the 800 year old Moli'i fishpond, one of the last remaining ancient Hawaiian fishponds in the state. This 125 acre rock-walled enclosure was hand-built by ancient Hawaiians to maintain a ready supply of live ocean fish.

From this point on, your day will continue to unfold with one unforgettable highlight after another. Once completing your kayak instruction, you'll paddle along the tranquil and glassy waters of Kaneohe Bay. Because of the protected reef that surrounds this area, this is one of the safest places for kayaking on Oahu.

You'll journey by kayak along Kualoa, listed on the National Register of Historical Places, to Mokoli'i (Chinaman's Hat) Island just 500 feet offshore. Here you'll stop for snorkeling, 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'll certainly not want to leave.
