Kaneohe Bay offers pristine kayaking waters full of marine life and vast coral reef systems. For those who want to explore a different part of Oahu by kayak, Kaneohe offers protected waters and opportunities for snorkeling with islands and sandbars to land on. Chinaman’s Hat (Mokoli’i in Hawaiian) is a 200ft tall landmark in Kaneohe Bay which can be reached via a short kayaking trip. Kailua Beach Adventures (KBA) will outfit you with a roof rack – free kayak rentals – to transport your kayak to the beautiful Kaneohe Bay. The Sand Bar (a.k.a. The Sunken Island or Disappearing Island) – the main attraction – may only appear at low tide so call ahead for tide-chart information. This sandbar has been called the Atlantis of Hawaii and creates a turquoise oasis in the center of the bay. The Kaneohe sandbar is a football field sized expanse of sand, making it a favorite destination for sailboats and kayakers alike
