Kayaking in Oahu

Kayaking in Oahu

A surprising number of people who sign up for kayaking Oahu are worried that it is a dangerous adventure sport. While there is plenty of adventure, there actually is very little danger.

If you have enough balance to ride a bicycle, you can easily stay upright in a kayak, whether you are planning to paddle on the ocean’s surface or in a stream or lake.

At Hawaii Eco Divers, we will teach you everything you need to know to be a competent kayaker in a single brief training session. You will learn the essentials such as how to get into a kayak and what to do if you fall out or tip over. And you’ll also learn how to steer your kayak and keep it upright, even if you get hit by a monster wave.

Kayaking Oahu — A Sport for All Ages

We also get a lot of folks dropping off their kids or younger people who say they are too old for kayaking. Nothing could be further from the truth.

One of the wonders of kayaking is that it can be appreciated by just about anybody, regardless of their age or even their physical condition.

You don’t need to have extraordinary balance or incredible upper body strength. Anybody who is in reasonable health who can walk a mile without stopping is probably in good enough shape to get into a kayak, whether they are 15 or 55.

Kayaking Oahu — Expert Help and Advice

Plus, Hawaii Eco Divers is not one of those storefront or beachside businesses that will rent you a kayak and then leave you entirely on your own to figure out how to use it.

You will receive expert advice and instruction before you hit the water so that you feel comfortable and confident during your kayaking outing. Our expert guides will even show you where to go and how to make the most of your trip.
