Oahu endears itself to both visitors and locals with its truly breathtaking scenery. The Ko'olau Mountain Range slopes across the island with rolling green hills and steep peaks that overlook Kailua Bay. Off the sandy shore, the ocean plays host to an array of aquatic wildlife, such as sea turtles, dolphins, exotic fish, and kayakers. The last of these creatures comes from Twogood Kayaks, whose trained naturalists lead tours through the area's brilliant turquoise waters and offshore islets filled with natural coves and 12 species of seabirds.
In addition to garnering a reputation for making and selling some of the swiftest kayaks over the past 30 years, the staffers also train the next generation of competitors during camps and clinics.
Endless Adventures Hawaii combines water-equipment rentals with a knowledge of local breaks and secret spots to create memorable experiences. Its kayaks, standup paddleboards, surfboards, and snorkels get people out in the salty blue. For those who prefer a guided expedition, tours explore the Mokulua twin islands, which are protected as a bird sanctuary, and Kailua Beach. Guides also lead snorkeling expeditions around Lanikai to spot coral reefs and sea-turtle habitats and set out under the stars on a Glow Paddle tour with paddleboards equipped with LED lights to illuminate the water.
