Kayaking in Kailua

Would you like to paddle some of the nicest waters in creation? Sun & Salt makes it easy for you! Either reserve our kayaks in advance or just walk in and we’ll help you get onto Kailua Bay the easy way!

Come to our shop and we get you set up for a day of FUN!

First, one of our office assistants (and not a video like at other locations) goes over a satellite map of Kailua Bay with you together and shows you how to safely navigate the waters. That way we make sure any safety questions you might have can be answered immediately and in detail.

Second, we show you the best and most scenic places on the islands you choose to kayak to and which areas of the bay offer the best snorkeling. Lastly, we offer free basic paddling instruction when you rent a boat with Sun & Salt.

The offshore islands in our Kailua/Lanikai bay are home to the wedge-tailed shear waterbird and are designated bird sanctuaries.

Permits for landing on Moku Nui or on Popoia Island, backrests, dry bags, and snorkel sets are optional rental equipment as not everyone needs them.

The beach is a short 5-minute drive from our store, so we provide free foam pads and straps so you can drive your kayak to Kailua Beach or Lanikai Beach. If you’re staying in a residence along Kailua or Lanikai Beach, we deliver rental kayaks free of charge for multi-day rentals.

**Please note that clear kayaks are only permitted on specific weather conditions only.
