We got a Groupon deal along with our friends to go for a one night stay at a local bed and breakfast on the windward side. The place was called Paradise Bay Resort - super good deal, we rented a two bedroom unit in a house and the other family rented the one other unit in the house. The house sat right on the waterfront of Kaneohe Bay. It was beautiful and so relaxing!
What was really awesome is that the rental included a pool and also use of their kayaks and a boat ride out to the sand bar in the bay, as well as a continental breakfast. So we made the most of our 24 hour stay :)
We headed out in the kayaks into the bay, and the kids got kind of scared as land pulled away behind us, but then they seemed to settle into it. As we got out into the middle of the bay, we found a sea turtle wrapped in some fishing line, so our friends hopped out and luckily he had brought a knife and was able to cut the turtle free. Hopefully the poor thing hadn't been trapped there too long.
The boat ride the next morning was a lot of fun too, first they took us out to a nice reef in the bay and we swam and snorkeled a little while, then they took us to the sand bar area. At low tide, the sand bar is exposed, we were there close to high tide, and the water was only up around my knees in a lot of places. Adam is sitting down in the picture above. And this is out in the middle of the bay.
We had an awesome deal at Paradise Bay, if you can get a good price I would definitely recommend it. I don't know that I'd want to pay their full price rates, I thought they were too high.
So yet another fun adventure on Oahu!
