Scenic

Kaneohe Bay is nearly always calm, especially in the mornings. Great place to have a meditative paddle on the glassy water, with wide views of Kaneohe and Oahu's steep, green mountains. There aren't many boats or people on the water, so it's a nice, peaceful experience.

Stand Up Paddleboards can be rented in the nearby town of Kailua at various watersports shops. Kayaks can also be rented as another option. The bay can be reached by public access points in neighborhoods at Kaneohe Bay (there are 3 on Mikiola Drive) or at Kaneohe Beach Park.

Rental Options:
Kailua Beach Adventures
Sammy's Aloha Watersports

I live on the bay and if I'm not up in the mountains hiking in the morning I'm usually paddling on the bay with my dog Echo (a blue Heeler) From about sunrise to 9:30 the bay is usually pancake flat and transparent allowing you to see all the coral heads, tons of eagle rays, and turtles. Depending on where you start your paddle, a circle around coconut island on a clear day will allow you to see a lot of reef formations and sand bars. Be warned, it can get very shallow at times so depending on what fin you are using on your board you might need to go around some of the reefs
