Have a piece of paradise all to yourself as you head out on a private boat charter across the azure Kaneohe Bay to a breathtaking sandbar. Known as "Ahua Laka," the sandbar is protected by an impressive barrier reef, leaving it in seclusion as it shimmers and shines beneath the clear and calm, crystal waters. It is the perfect spot for snorkeling, swimming and simply relaxing the day away. While aboard, you will also enjoy a delicious local-style picnic lunch to replenish your energy after a fun day in the sun and sea!
