Considered to be the world's largest saltwater sandbar, the Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar is a three-acre, mile-long white sand island only accessible at low tide. Sitting in the middle of Kaneʻohe Bay, Hawai’i's only barrier-reef protected inlet, the sandbar is a thalassophile's delight. Green sea turtles, rays, and reef fish are just some of the wide variety of marine wildlife that visitors can expect to see at the sandbar during a relaxing day out on the warm ocean waters.
Once Captain Bruce's private pontoon arrives on the Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar, you will enjoy everything from swimming with Hawai’i's honu (green sea turtles) and discovering a thriving barrier reef to stand-up paddle boarding 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.
Gather up the family or a group of your closest friends and experience one of O’ahu's true hidden gems: the Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar. Located in the middle of Hawai’i's only barrier reef-protected bay, the Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar is an ideal spot to discover Hawai’i's diverse waters.
Perfect for a family-friendly day out on the water, our Captain Bruce private pontoon boat charters out to the Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar comfortably fit groups of six or less.
As one of the only licensed maritime tour providers on O’ahu to have official Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar access, all our Captain Bruce boats are licensed for tours to and from Kaneʻohe Bay.
Our private pontoon boat charters on O’ahu must be booked in advance and are available for Kaneʻohe Bay Sandbar tours every Monday to Saturday, weather and sea conditions permitting.
