Michael Gulden started Active Oahu in 2013 as a way to share some of the best scenery and adventures on Oahu in a more convenient and family-friendly way. Active Oahu escapes the mainstream and helps get you off the beaten path and out on an adventure. We make the tours and rentals authentic and more personalized. Active Oahu caters to easy and flexible delivery and pickup of kayaks and beach gear to your private address. We are based in Kailua in close proximity to many adventure destinations. Our team will be there to help you strap kayaks to your vehicle and provide any necessary information before heading off on your experience.

If you reserve with us, you’ll get a “local-style” experience with authentic and friendly staff: Oahu Kayak Tours and Activities. In order to keep things fresh, our staff is less scripted and more themselves. We like to help you find more exclusive locations to kayak and really immerse yourself in the beauty of Oahu.

We help make your Oahu adventures a breeze and cater best to those adventurous souls who don’t want/need a guide. Our most popular item is our kayak rentals, but we also rent out other beach equipment: Oahu Beach Gear Rentals. This is especially nice for those staying at vacation rentals who are on a perfect beach and want to save time and get convenient delivery to their doorstep. We can make deliveries straight to your private address and with multiple day rentals, you can enjoy the convenience of having beach equipment longer. Be sure to plan in advance, we get booked pretty quick.
