Description

This is the perfect adventure combo for those who don't have much experience paddling. With the help of our expert local guides you'll not only become an expert at kayaking, but you will learn all about what makes the Hawaiian ecosystem so special. After a brief safety orientation, we'll take off from Kailua Bay, where the ocean is calm and crystal clear.

The first leg of our journey is to Popoia Island which is located approximately 1/4 mile off the shore. This will prove the perfect distance so that you can get in the groove of paddling. Popoia Island is also known as the flat island and you will know why once you see it! This unique geographical phenomenon attracts a rare species of endangered sea birds. Don't forget your camera, you're going to want to capture this!

We'll take some time to explore the island and your guide will tell you all about the history and geology of the area. Cool off with a dip in the water, put on your snorkel gear and catch a glimpse of the Hawaiian underwater world. You can expect sea turtles as well as an array of tropical fish. We'll find the perfect place to enjoy a Hawaiian style picnic lunch before embarking on our return paddle.

On our return we'll take a different route back to Kailua Beach, this time paddling for approximately 3/4 of a mile. This is truly a day to remember.

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
