KANE‘OHE BAY, a 7,500-acre inlet, is the largest sheltered body of water in the main Hawaiian Islands and the only bay in Hawai‘i with a barrier reef. Five tiny islands are anchored in the bay, the two largest being CHINAMAN’S HAT and COCONUT ISLAND. Coconut Island is owned by the State of Hawai‘i and is home to a University of Hawai‘i research center, but it is perhaps best known for its role in the long-standing television series “Gilligan’s Island.”

Adventurers can explore this watery playground with HOLOKAI KAYAK & SNORKEL ADVENTURES. Guides knowledgeable in the area as well as marine safety take guests on exciting eco-adventures throughout the bay. Tours depart from the He‘eia Learning Center at He‘eia State Park Monday through Saturday, 9 a.m. to noon.
