The Wonders of the Kaneohe Bay Sandbar

Considered to be the world's largest saltwater sandbar, the Kaneohe Bay Sandbar is a three-acre, mile-long white sand island only accessible at low tide. Sitting in the middle of Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii'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 speedboat 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 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.
