    The crew was the best

    The crew was excellent. Besides seeing turtles and fishes, the crew was attentive and made the experience memorable.

    Morning snorkel tour

    We were really happy with this tour. Our 4th time to Oahu, first to Kaneohe. We had 2 families with teenage kids. They loved snorkeling, spotting turtles and many fish. Also use of the paddle boards and floating rings etc. The team onboard were super friendly and the great thing is it’s only as short trip from the marina to the sandbar. Also grab a dole whip before you leave at the store there.

    A great time!

    I've been to the sandbar a couple of times and never been disappointed. Captain Bruce does a great job with transportation. One thing to keep in mind with any sandbar tour is the tide. Make sure you check a tide forecast before booking. If you go during high tide you won't be walking around in knee deep water, it will be closer to 5' which can still be fun, but usually isn't why you go to the sandbar.

    Highly Recommend

    I took this tour by myself and had a blast. I could participate in paddling, snorkeling, or just floating. It was beautiful and relaxing. The crew was wonderful. It is definitely worth doing.
