Captain Bruce's private boat charter on Oahu is ideal for group parties and intimate family-friendly adventures. Personalize your Kaneohe Sandbar catamaran charter to your group's schedule and desires so you can make unforgettable memories, island-style.

Sit back, relax and let the Captain Bruce crew serve your every need as you explore the largest saltwater sandbar on Oahu and one of Oahu's most unique treasures: the Kaneohe Bay Sandbar.

Once Captain Bruce's private catamaran tour arrives on the Kaneohe Sandbar, you will enjoy everything from swimming with Hawaii's honu (green sea turtles) and discovering a thriving barrier reef to stand-up paddleboarding the tranquil bay waters and basking in the sun on the white-sand sandbar—available only at low tide.

Always remember to keep your distance and respect our marine life; Hawaii's honu, along with several other marine wildlife, are a protected species.
