Take time relax and snorkel along reefs off Kailua and Lanikai beaches, two of the most beautiful beaches in the world, with soft white sand and turquoise water. Go snorkeling and get a chance to spot sea turtles and the Humuhumunukunukuapua’a, Hawaii’s state fish. This beach exprience inclues everything you will need such as snorkel gear, boogie boards,bikes, beach mats, chairs, and lunch (deli, pizza, or local lunch).

After pickup at your hotel, head to the beach shop in Kailua, a 2-minute walk to the beach, where staff members share the best spots for snorkeling and recommendations based on your group and the day's conditions. With access to lockers, beach equipment, and discounts on last-minute items, spend 4 hours on the white-sand beach and use showers and changing rooms when you're done.

With a live coral reef and shallow calm water, Lanikai Beach is a short bike ride away and is great for snorkeling beginners. Kailua Bay, a protected Ocean Recreation Management Area, is a feeding area for endangered green sea turtles, or honu—look but don't touch as they swim around the reefs and eat seaweed off the rocks. You may also spot birds like wedge-tailed shearwaters, brown noddies, and blue footed boobies.

Located 12 miles from Waikiki and just north of Lanikai, Kailua Beach offers picnic tables, barbecue pits, volleyball courts, showers, restrooms, and plenty of shade. The most popular activities include kayaking, stand-up paddling, and kitesurfing.

First off, all staff were super friendly and helpful. But this is basically a boogie board and snorkel rental, with a $10 meal for over $100 USD. Kailua beach is beautiful to boogie board, not good for swimming. If you want to go to Lanikai where snorkelling is better (but sub-par compared toy the rest of the island), it’s a 30 minute walk. We chose to cab over which cost us an extra $20. Save yourself some money and rent a car and drive over. The drive is beautiful and you can stop at any beach along the way. This tour is way over priced.

The guides were helpful and gave us instructions on how to get to the beach, after that, the entire trip was self guided with lunch included. The beach itself was amazing and peaceful, and the provided lunch was pretty good. The van ride was also pretty quick and smooth.

When they say it's a self guided tour. That's really what it is. You basically pay for the pick up van to take you to the beach. They state in their description of the activity that the beach is nearby. What they fail to tell you is - The nicer beach Lanikai beach is a little less than a mile walk from where they are!!! Pretty long walk on a hot day! They provide a map and you're on your own! Lanikai beach is beautiful and that's why I rated it a fair experience.
