Holokai Kayak Adventure - Paddle out into the calm waters of Kaneohe Bay

Description

The tour begins on the windward coast of Oahu from He’eia State Park. There you will meet your skipper, brave and sure, who will be your guide and accompany you the entire way in an escort boat. You will paddle your kayaks from the docks of He’eia State Park through the barrier-reef-protected waters of Kaneohe Bay to the banks of Coconut Island. The island is currently owned by the State of Hawaii and is used as the Hawaii Institute of Marine Biology facility. The island is off limit, except for the banks where you will land, but you may be able to see dolphins being trained at the facility.

From the banks of Coconut Island, snorkel around the patch reefs that border the island. The patch reefs are home to a diverse population of tropical marine animals. Rays, cuttlefish, sea turtles, schools of exotic fish and more make Kaneohe Bay their home. Your guide will point out cultural sites, such as the traditional Hawaiian fishpond at He’eia, as well as share some of the interesting history about the locations with you.

The rest of the three-hour tour will be spent snorkeling through the various patch reefs around Coconut Island, all of which possess a rich aquaculture teeming with marine life.

After snorkeling, you will return to the docks at He’eia State Park, where you can use their warm showers and facilities, as well as chow down on a Hawaiian BBQ lunch.

Please Note: Coconut island was used for the long-shots of the island on Gilligan's Island. Every other scene was shot in a studio. You will not find Gilligan's shack with bunk-hammocks there. In fact, you won't find much there as access to the vast majority of the island is limited, as it is now home to the University of Hawaii's marine research department.
