Captain Bob's Picnic Sail & Snorkeling

This is a fun snorkel cruise in Kaneohe Bay on Oahu’s east shore. You’ll get picked up at your Waikiki / Honolulu hotel and enjoy humorous stories and interesting facts about Hawaiian history and geography en route to Kaneohe Bay. From here, Captain Bob will take you on a scenic cruise to one of Kaneohe Bay’s sandbars, where the water is barely 12 inches deep, a perfect spot for a fun game of volleyball! While you play or go swimming or snorkeling, the chef will grill a tasty BBQ lunch. After lunch, there will be a second stop at a coral reef for some more snorkeling. You’ll be able to see a variety of tropical fish and green sea turtles.

Kaneohe Bay is one of Oahu’s most scenic locations, framed by the Ko'olau Mountain Range. The bay is actually the massive caldera of an extinct volcano. The last eruption was 350,000 years ago. It caused a third of the island to crumble into the ocean! What remains today is Kaneohe Bay. Standing on the sandbar and looking around, you can see that the volcano that created Kaneohe Bay must have been gigantic.
