Kayak trips on Oahu are among the most beautiful activities and adventures that the island has to offer. Although the beaches off Waikiki and Honolulu are the most frequented by visitors, some of the most exotic water scapes can be found on Oahu's eastern and northern windward coasts.
Kayaking off the coast of Kailua which is about a half an hour drive through the "Pali" tunnel from Waikiki is particularly beautiful, especially for eco tour enthusiasts. The Mokulua Islands just lie about a mile or so off the coast of windward Oahu, and the shallow water in between provides excellent coral formations and plenty of sea life within a few minute's kayak paddle.
Kayaks are generally offered as a single or double, depending upon your preference, and some of the kayaking companies also have special "see through" kayaks made of transparent material which essentially makes the inside of your kayak a giant face mask. Snorkeling is always a part of the equation, and oftentimes visiting with turtles, dolphins and whales in season.
