Charter the 52' Corinthian Power catamaran, which can hold up to 38 passengers, for a day of fun in the sun at Kaneohe Bay's famous sand bar! A smooth cruise on K-Bay's sheltered waters will lead you to the sand bar which at low tides creates a small island in the middle of the Bay. Before returning to the pier you'll be taken to a reef area with plenty of fish—an ideal snorkeling destination—where snorkeling gear & instruction will be provided for you. There will be light snacks and water on board, but feel free to bring food & drinks to make this your perfect beach day!
