Enjoy a full day of beach activities in Kailua Bay! This self guided tour includes snorkeling, boogie boarding, a hot lunch and hotel pick-up. Catch waves, enjoy the sun and go for a snorkel, all in one day. Snorkeling the reefs off Kailua and Lanikai Beach (a 15-30 minute walk from Kailua Beach) is a unique experience not to be missed. Lanikai Beach is exceptional for beginners due to the proximity of the live coral reef to the soft white sand and the shallow, calmer water. 

Kailua Bay is a protected Ocean Recreation Management Area and a Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, or Honu, feeding grounds. Honu are endangered and protected animals that spend their days swimming around the shallow reefs and eating Limu, or seaweed, off the rocks. These creatures cannot be touched and care should be given not to disturb their natural routine. They can often be spotted by the keen and quiet observer. While they are feeding and active, sea turtles must come up to breathe every couple of minutes. Calmer days, with less wind, allow for better visibility and therefore a better chance at spotting turtles and tropical fish. 

Hawaii is home to hundreds of endemic fish species including the Humuhumunukunukuapua'a, Hawaii's State fish. Kailua also has healthier coral, in more of its natural state, than places like Hanauma Bay that see over 1 million visitors per year. Kailua and Lanikai Beaches are considered to be two of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with the softest white sand and turquoise water.

Frequently Asked Questions
H Tours Hawaii is a "one stop shop" for all the best activities in the Hawaiian Islands. Since we work with many providers, reservations are necessary. WE HIGHLY recommend making reservations, as many activities are at a discount when you reserve in advance. Some providers even charge higher for those "walking in" because they know chances are you're not going to walk away. Finally, a reservation ensures you have a space on the tour. Trust us you don't want to spend so much time and money to come to Hawaii and then miss out on an activity because they were booked out!
Choose the tour you are interested in, click the red “Book It” button adjacent to the tour information, and complete the booking form.
While we can usually accommodate most last-minute bookings, we highly encourage those that are checking out our website far in advance to book 2-3 weeks prior to desired date. You never know if there's a convention, special event, or an increase in overall visitors in town, and it would be a shame if the activities that you want to do are sold out because you waited until the last minute. Basically, if you know you want to do it, just book it!
Most companies have a set of centrally located hotels that they do pick ups from. This makes the pickup process short so you can start the tour as soon as possible!
Gratuity is never required but if you enjoyed your experience, a tip is always greatly appreciated!

Great family experience! Highly recommend as a must do while you are visiting O'ahu the staff at Kailua sailboards & kayaks are courteous, very knowlegable, helpful and professional, and offer a wide variety of activities while visiting beautiful Kailua beach.
Amazing family experience
We spent 3 weeks in O'ahu and visited several beach parks and establisments, Kailua Sailboards & Kayaks ranks the top in our list.  The entire staff is knowledable, friendly and professional. We took the tour to the Island one day, another rented paddleboards, and a couple more days relaxed at Kailua beach with boogeyboards and snorkle gear.... more
Thank you Paul, Kaiulani, John and everyone for an Amazing experience!
Beach Tour
This was a fantastic trip. With the beach tour you can snorkel (not much to see) and enjoy the beautiful beach in beach chairs. Or change your mind and bogey board or take a stoll on a beach cruiser. Have your "included" lunch when you are hungry. The staff were amazing-nice, helpful and knew their way around. Free lockers included too. If you like unstuctured freedom to explore, this is the place ... morefor you. This was our best visit during our vacation.
Best tour in Oahu
It was absolutely stunning! We actually had a better time snorkeling with Matt then at Hanauma Bay. Kayaking was so much fun. I highly recommend Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks. This was our favorite excursion during our stay in Oahu, and we will definitely come back!
An Amazing Experience
I absolutely LOVED this experience. The beach and park are beyond beautiful. The sand is like powder and the water was a spectacular color. I HIGHLY recommend this activity - my 13 year old was totally engaged the whole time (it takes ALOT to engage 13 year olds!!!). The pick-up from Waikiki was on time and the driver was pleasant.
