Ocean Activities

In ancient times, the coastline surrounding Turtle Bay was reserved for the Ali'i, or Hawaiian royalty. Today it’s a place of fresh perspective, rich in marine life. Spot sea turtles or have a chance encounter with a Hawaiian Monk Seal or baby Hammerhead Shark. Glide along the protected waters of Kawela Bay on a kayak or dive deep below it. These Hawaiʻi ocean water activities connect you to the motion and rhythm of our extraordinary North Shore.
