Welcome To Our Kahana Valley Location Page
This is an area that abounds with beauty, history and sea life. Kahana Bay is a very special and quiet place. Ancient Hawaiians once thrived in this area due to the abundance of fresh water. The valley boasts a large assortment of Hawaiian cultural sites including taro ponds, irrigation ditches and heiau’s. A stream flows from the valley and into the ocean here. Kahana Bay is located on the east shore where the gentle trade winds blow into the beach most of the year.
On the beach is a well established iron wood grove that provides protective shade from the hot summer sun. The cool breeze combined with the shady grove offer the coolest temperatures for hanging out on the beach in the sweltering summer months. This area also offers an ancient Hawaiian fish pond easily accessible by kayak. Early Hawaiians were the first in the world to establish marine aqua culture. The ruins of this ancient pond still exist for those wishing to explore it.
The gentle river that runs from the valley is another area for exploring, and awesome views of the valley can be had from kayaking up stream. Bird watchers will enjoy the many birds that live in the valley. Most days, because of the trade winds, a small gentle wave breaks onto the sandy beach. This gentle wave is much like the typhoon lagoon type that you would find at a water park. This fun and gentle surf beach is excellent for kayak surfing as well as body surfing. Beginners and children will have a blast playing in the waves here.
Turtles can be seen in the off shore waters of Kahana Bay. The occasional monk seal can be found basking on the sands. In the winter months Hump Back whales are present off shore and can be seen from the kayaks. The reefs near the outside of the bay offer good snorkeling and reef fish live here. This is a breezy beach with lots to explore. Kahana Bay is our safest location in general and safest for kayaking in the winter months. When the north shore is to rough for kayaking, Kahana Bay is our all weather location and we can always manage a 3 hour tour here even during the winter months.
We offer 3 hour and 5 hour Kahana Bay kayak tours. All the kayak equipment is included in the tour price. All tours include an American red cross trained guide to provide you a safe experience. Our guides are well trained and have in depth local knowledge of the area. For the 3 hour kayak tours we stock the soft coolers with water, drink, and snacks. For the 5 hour kayak tours we stock the soft coolers with water, drinks, snacks, and a lunch. For those wishing cooler temperatures, up river time, kayak surfing, fish pond exploration, snorkeling and lunch, the 5 hour Kahana Bay kayak tour is highly recommended.
