My friend and I had a great time. We biked from Kailua to Lanikai and did a little snorkeling and then back to Kailua for a little... R&R on the beach.Kailua was one of the best beaches we went to, great water and sand.... wish we did the kayaks but I guess it's best to reserve something for next time! more


My time at Kailua beach was probably the biggest highlight of my whole time in hawaii! It was beautiful and you are well away from... the crowds that crowd the beach Waikiki. I chose snorkelling as my option and was not disappointed, the staff where you get your equipment from are so friendly and knowledgable, I was directed to the best part of the beach for snorkelling. I even swam out 1/2 a mile to the little island!! Which was good fun, easy enough swim, any average swimmer could do it. So beautiful and the water was so clear! more


I borrowed a bike and rode south to the farthest part of the beach. It was secluded from everyone which made time more enjoyable. ...Less noise, more ocean. I snorkeled most of the day and relaxed. Again, very enjoyable. However, the business and its employees is different story. They were wonderful, helpful, attentive, whatever other synonym out there that reflects on how a business should be. more


Before I got to Oahu i was wondering what to do for my short trip. It was my fist trip to Hawaii and i had no idea where to start.... But booking a snorkel session with them was a good choice. They picked us up at Waikiki, and the pick up location just happened to be across the street of our hotel. Made a call to our hotel to remind us the day before our session. Even though I never done snorkel before it was easy to learn. As long as you can swim you can snorkel, just remember to keep your breathing tube above water. Kailua beach had clear water and lots of fish, and it's one of the reason I got hooked to snorkeling. We were going to do it again but our trip was too short, but if we had time we would. This is a honest review from someone who visited to those that are still hesitating. BOOK IT. Your won't regret. PS: remember to put on sunscreen, water base resist would be best. more

To start our day, we were greeted timely & warmly. The driver gave us a lot of information on the way to Kailua. The staff was... all very attentive & pleasant. Everything was easily accessible to make our day full of as many activities as we decided to do. They had chairs, snorkel equipment, lockers, bikes, & many other item. Also all our questions were answered. We started the day deciding to take bikes to Lanikai Beach. Wow was that beautiful beach!!!! This trip also included lunch which you have a choice of 3 places. When you see locals eating at a place you know its good!!!! After lunch we walked to Kailua Beach and saw amazing parasurfing? This trip could be for people with all ranges of adventure or athletic ability. You have many choices of what YOU want to participate in at whatever level you are comfortable, there is no one pressuring you to do what you don't want to do! We were very happy with our experience & can't wait to come back! We would highly recommend this trip! Thank you!!! more

This was a great beach day at Kailua Beach! We were picked up by mini van right at our hotel and taken to a small plaza containin...g the water sports store sponsoring the activity. The people in the store were pleasant and showed us the lockers and gave us our vouchers for the included lunch. Also included was the use of boogie boards and beach chairs. The beach is a short walk from the plaza so keep in mind that you will need to carry things with you. Towels not included so be sure to bring your own! The beach itself is gorgeous and clean with that beautiful blue iridescent water! We set up shop under a tree and were happy there all day. There are facilities at the beach. While the food places were open at 10:00 AM, we chose to wait until 12:30 to eat. We opted for the pizza and drink. The pizza was the closest to true NY style we had in Hawaii...we were very impressed! It says one slice however the slice is actually a quarter of a very large pie and they cut it in two for you so it is two good sized slices! At the end of the day we headed back to the store and turned in our beach things we had borrowed and browsed the gift shop. A great day! more

Mrs. D

My daughter went paddleboarding at Kailua Beach and she had an amazing instructor ( Kelea ) It was my daughter's first time t...rying this out and I could not have asked for a better person to instruct her! Thank you so much for your patience and wonderful attitude. Kailua Beach is a must go to beach, absolutely breathtaking! more


Had a great time the first time, I did it again. I did the same thing, got bicycle and rode to the end of Lanikai beach to find spot I first saw, a secluded beach to myself. However this year was high tide and didn't have the beach, but still enjoyed to peace and quiet though. From there, I traveled all the back to Kailua, and kept on going north until it was time to go back. Then choose Bobs pizza, cannot go wrong. Will I go back and do this again; for sure!! Thumbs up again on the great customer service, accommodating their customers, the reason of being in business. You can expand your business by start selling seminars on how to conduct great ethical business practices. more


This place was a great choice! So glad we booked this kayaking activity! It was both me and my friends first time kayaking in the ...ocean and I was a little nervous but as soon as I got there I was greeted by a very friendly staff! Our guide "PO" was so welcoming and friendly! He made us feel very comfortable from the moment we met him. He was very patient, knowledgable, taught us some history about Kailua and most of all he made us feel safe! :) PO was an AMAZING kayaking guide!!! I would totally recommend this activity to anyone who wants to get away from the crowed beaches like in Waikiki. Most beautiful beach in Oahu in my opinion. Forgot to mention the lunch it included was super yummy! PS. PO our guide also took great pics of us with his GoPro and emailed them to us for free. Great customer service!!! Wish I could give 10 stars more


Staff is AWESOME and VERY helpful in getting you what you need and want. Lunch was ok. Choice of 2 different places to choose meal.... Would do it again. more

Mr. Anonymous

Great experience. Friendly staff, great for people who like to spend the day exploring and relaxing outdoors. Kailua & Lanikai... are great for relaxing on the beach, snorkelling & kayaking and isn't overly crowded. After spending the day at the beach, come back and get sweets & shave ice at the next door eateries and enjoy the ride back to Waikiki. more


My friend and I had a great time! We biked from Kailua to Lanikai and did a little snorkeling and then back to Kailua for a little... R&R on the beach.Kailua was one of the best beaches we went to, great water and sand.... wish we did the kayaks but I guess it's best to reserve something for next time! more


Very fun activity when water is clear and the sun is shining :)


Great and beautiful beach to experience on Oahu for snorkeling but the thirty minute walk to get to the good snorkeling part was u...nexpected, there should have been a shuttle offered. more


Also $8 optional shopping trip to town ws not mentioned Food could have been better, very greasy Next time I would do pizza ...not the bbq/chinese option Had fun on the beach even though snorkleing is not very good, too far to walk and water not the clearest up close more


Fantastic place to swim, snorkel and meet the locals. If you do not have your own snorkel equipment, need a ride to and from this... area and a good lunch, then this is a decent deal. However, I had my own equipment and in hindsight I wished I had rented a car (same cost) for travel to Kailua Beach. The beach is free, could have stayed till sunset (instead of 2:30 pm), explore the nightlife, and dined here instead of my expensive tourist trap in Waikiki. Learn from my experience, but come here for a great beach experience. more


OK for whom who want active activities.

Mr. Anonymous

The beach was beautiful. Very good for boogie boarding but snorkeling was not happening unless you took a thirty minute walk to ge...t there with all of your equipment. To get to the beach was a five minute walk which was not bad but there was no transportation offered to the family to get to the snorkeling part of the beach. Really this outing was over priced. Carrying four boogie boards, towels, and snorkeling gear with kids is not fun. So we did not to get to go snorkeling here. There should have been a small shuttle offered to get to certain areas of the beach. Who wants to be carrying this equipment back and forth to the beach. The meals offered was good but again we had to wait till just before leaving to eat because the food services are back at the rental facility. All they need to offer is a shuttle and I would not hesitate returning. more
