“We live in town and wanted to rent kayaks for the day near La’ie and Active Oahu Tours was perfect. We got to the beach and our a worker met us and gave us the kayaks to use and then he picked them up after. Very reasonably priced compared to other places, plus they deliver which is convenient. I will definitely be renting from them again and would highly suggest them if you want to rent for all or part of a day near La’ie.”
“These guys are amazing. As far as flexibility, they cannot be beat. All day rental. Dropped off where we wanted, when we wanted, and picked up when and where we wanted. The best. There was a strap broken on one of the kayaks, but all the rest of the gear was fine. It allowed us to have a blast. We called them the night before we wanted to rent. Nice people too.”
“Renting paddleboards is the way to go! We rented paddleboards and snorkeling equipment to use at our beach house and it was definitely the way to go! The staff delivered and picked up and were great to communicate with. Will definitely rent again when we return.”

Our main fleet of Kayaks for hire are all tandem (two-person) Malibu Two Ocean Kayaks. These are some of our favorite kayaks due to their stability, maneuverability, and utility. Malibu Twos also have a center seat that makes it great as a single kayak. The lighter hulls, about 57lbs, and a moderate length of 12ft really help them perform great in the ocean or off-shore streams. All of our normal rentals come with paddles That have aluminum handles and plastic/resin blades with Fiberglass mixed in.
We also have a fleet of Pro 2 Tandem kayaks from Malibu Kayaks and Perception Kayaks. They cut through the water with ease and are great to be used as both a single or double. They are significantly longer (13ft) and heftier (75lbs), but they make up for it in their 550lb weight capacity and great handling, especially in the ocean.
We do have Malibu Two XL or Perception kayaks for larger paddlers. The biggest advantage of the XL kayaks is the weight capacity which is 500lbs for the Malibu 2 XL and 550lbs for the Pro 2 Tandem compared to the regular Malibu Two which has a 425lb weight capacity. Please request the Malibu Two XL or one of our newer Malibu Kayaks Pro 2 Tandems when you book if that’s what you need.
