Guided Mokulua Islands Kayak Tour and E-Bike Adventure

Experience two activities in one with our guided kayak and e-bike adventure

Begin an exhilarating 5-hour journey to the Mokulua Islands off the coast of Kailua, Oahu. Our adventure starts at our activity hub in Kailua, where you’ll meet our experienced guides. Say goodbye to car hassles—your transportation to Kailua Beach is an exciting e-bike ride where we'll attach bike trailers to carry your kayak effortlessly. You will paddle towards Moku Nui, a designated bird sanctuary and we will provide permits for this adventure. Be sure to reserve your spot in advance, as availability is limited. During this 5-hour journey, you’ll encounter a vibrant array of wildlife, including sea turtles, Hawaiian monk seals, tropical fish, and sea birds. We’ll explore the island’s hidden tide pools and venture to its back side If weather conditions permit. This tour is ideal for physically active individuals aged 16 years and older.

*We conveniently provide kayaks and beach gear at our Kailua storefront for pickup, then use e-bikes to transport you and your gear to Kailua Bay after providing on-site instruction and helpful information, ensuring a hassle-free and enjoyable experience.

Rob show us how to use the kayaks, and willing to go at whatever pace suited us. Throughout the tour, he shared information and stories about the area and the wildlife around us. It was so much better to have someone guide us rather than just getting in kayaks and being on our own. Thank you for your hospitality and we hope to be back again!

On this tour, you’ll be heading towards the breathtaking Mokulua Islands, also known as Kailua’s Twin Islands. These two charming islets off Oahu’s windward coast are a must-see. It’s a scenic 60-80 minute paddle from Kailua Beach Park over protected reefs and turquoise water to the main island, Moku Nui, the State Wildlife Sanctuary. Weather permitting, we will hike around the island’s backside or venture to the queen’s bath and explore tide pools.

Remember to stick to the trails and keep the island pristine by disposing of any litter properly. Moku Nui is not only a natural paradise but also a bird sanctuary, especially lively during the spring with adorable fluffy chicks. Let’s be respectful of the local wildlife – they’re cute and cuddly looking but rely on the island’s seclusion for their safety. Please look, but don’t touch or disturb the wildlife. The Mokulua islands are also a prime spot to glimpse the endangered Hawaiian Monk Seal. The seals often rest on the sandy shore of Moku Nui after sometimes swimming hundreds of miles, navigating the deep ocean channels between the Hawaiian islands.

Kayaking tour To the Mokulua Islands

The entire adventure, from biking from the shop to paddling out to the Mokulua islands and exploring their wonders, takes about 5 hours. Get ready for an unforgettable journey filled with excitement, natural beauty, and new memories.

What to Expect

Please meet at the Kailua Storefront to check in 1 hour before your tour starts. Here you’ll meet your guide and receive a safety demo, a description of the route, kayaking lessons, and a brief cultural history. From there we will guide you through using the e-bike and provide you with all the necessary equipment to have fun, including lifejackets. 

You will then ride to Kailua Beach Park (a 7-minute ride) with your guide and then meet your guide in the water with your kayak and gear where your tour will begin. Your guide will direct you on how to get in and out of your kayak safely and how to paddle effectively. If you’re feeling adventurous you may be able to stop at Popoia Island on the way to Moku Nui as well as stop at Lanikai Beach to snorkel, just ask your guide. On the way out to the mokes, your guide will explain the local cultural and historical significance of these islands as well as the animal life that calls them home. Maybe even seeing a sea turtle or a monk seal. 

Once on Moku Nui island, your guide will help you explore and hike around, visiting Queen’s Bath and its surrounding tidepools and possibly the back side of the island if the weather permits. You will also be served a fresh lunch on the beach there. 

As you head back on your kayak you get spectacular views of Kailua Bay and Lanikai and talk story with your guide about this special place. When you return to Kailua Beach you will simply strap the kayak back on your car and meet the guide at the Kailua Storefront where you will be given a fresh lunch and shave ice.
