Picnic and Snorkel Sail - Captain Bob's Snorkeling
This one is a unique trip! It's a snorkeling cruise, a water adventure and a relaxing day in the beautiful Kaneohe Bay. This event begins with a bus tour from Waikiki via scenic routes. Once inside the bay, you will find the 56 shallow coral reefs, which the green sea turtles and over 2,000 species of exotic tropical sea life call home. After you anchor at the sandbar, you can immerse in the clear refreshing Kaneohe Bay. They even set up a net on the shallow sandbar for a game of Hawaiian style water volleyball. The whole time you will be engulfed by the view of the majestic Ko'olau Mountains. Kaneohe Bay is dotted with popular landmarks such as Gilligan's Island and Chinaman's Hat. After a BBQ lunch, go to an amazing coral reef where you can enjoy more snorkeling and check out all the different types of coral that thrive in Hawaiian Waters. All snorkel equipment and instructions will be provided. Just bring your towel and sunscreen!

After the hustle and bustle of Waikiki Capt. Bob's is and absolute delight. It is laid back, relaxing, entertaining and fun! Jenner, your host, and the crew do everything to make the day like a family outing. simple food, cool beverages and turtle!!!! this is ou second time on this trip and I am sure we will be back.
We have been on this excursion 3 times! Loved it! Loved it! Each time we took different friends or family with us.We are planing a 4th time this summer!What I like is that this excursions is so hands-on,and includes lots of variety in activities,picnic on an ocean fairy boat,we get to meet new people n make friends... and most of all Jenner is an amazing host.He truly makes us feel like we are on a relaxing Hawaiian vacation.I give this activity a 5 star rating and 2 thumbs up!
We had a great time! It was so nice to be able to relax and not have to worry about traffic or navigating! Thank you!
I did this tour with my wife and we both had a blast. She's not even much of a water person yet she enjoyed immensely. The ride to, and back, was comfortable with good info and stories provided by our tour guide. The Cat sail was pleasurable and the crew pleasant and informative. The snorkeling was nice, anchoring on the sandbar pleasant and a nice getaway in Kaneohe bay...away from the crowds. The lunch was simple but filling, all you need with a day of sun and in the water.The crew of the Cat was very helpful and informative, as well as entertaining; it was clear they thoroughly enjoyed their work and interaction with us all. My wife didn't even snorkel(not being a water person) but spent time on the sandbar and Cat interacting with the other guests and crew, yet still had a blast...telling me it was the best planned all-day excursion she's done on Oahu. You've got hours of fun:a day excurion to beautiful K-Bay, catamaran ride, snorkeling and fun on the sandbar, a nice lunch, great staff on and off the boat, and other participants from all over, to interact with. For the price, considering all that's involved, this is a great tour and one not to be missed if visiting Oahu.
This is a must when visiting Oahu. My husband and I have taken this trip about six times and have never been disappointed. The crew is fantastic and snorkeling is amazing, especially once you swim away from the boat a little. Even if one does not snorkel, the boat ride is wonderful, people friendly, turtles always seen by us, and food good. Once we took our first trip, this is always a must on our annual trip to Oahu. Only complaint was transportation from Waikiki, normally good, was very slow last year, Aug 2014. Should not be detained to wait for slow guests and then additional bathroom breaks. Best of all--Kelly is back and a captain of one of the boats. Welcome back, Kelly. Our family missed you.
6 of us went on this trip. 3 were new to snorkeling. Being able to test it out in shallow water was great. Then a wonderful bbq lunch. While being serenaded by Jenner. Then on to the snorkeling site where we saw a large variety of fish. The whole day was memorable.
It was a really great tour. The guides were friendly and everything was so beautiful. I would definitely do it again and recommend it to others.
Outstanding trip. The waters of Kaneohe Bay are ideal for first time snorkelers. Saw several green turtles as well as the highlight...a manta ray. The crew were very friendly and entertaining. Would highly recommend this trip!!
Absolutely amazing!! This ended up being our favourite trip that we took while in Hawaii. The crew were lovely and the spots we went to were fantastic. Snorkelling with turtles was a definite highlight and we wont hesitate to book again.
It was the best! The host of our cruise was Mike and he and the crew were amazing!!!
A bit crowded. Not too much food or drink. Beautiful scenery. Great crew.
