Look no further to get out and get active, right here on base! Outdoor Recreation (ODR) at Hickam Beach lets you take advantage of the great location to enjoy activities in the warm Hawaiian waters for our own harbor. From sailing to surfing, stand up paddleboarding to fishing and more, ODR has expert guides ready to show you how to make the most out your time while in Hawaii.
Moonlight Kayaking: A monthly favorite! Not only a lot of fun but a great way to stay in shape and we provide the gear and guide. Kayaking by the light of the moon is both serene and exciting at the same time as the environment takes on a different atmosphere. These tours are great for beginners too as they fit in the Easy (flat water) to Moderate (small waves, light winds) range.
Surfing Classes: Hawaii is the surf capital of the world so what better place to learn than right here? Our professional instructors teach you the basics from standing and paddling out to catching and angling down the wave.
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Get a great workout as you glide across the water. Paddle boarding is not just a great water activity, it can also be relaxing as you propel yourself along.
Snorkeling: Join us as we explore the outside reef at Hickam Harbor. A completely different way to go sightseeing, our expert leaders will show you some of the interesting sealife lurkign beneath the surface.
Fishing/Spearfishing: When you're surrounded by water, fishing naturally becomes an activity to try. If you like to relax, come on one our Bottom Fishing tours and enjoy the company of others on the boat as you all try to land the big one. If you're more of a hunter, Spear Fishing is as exciting and challenging as it sounds. You are the hunter pursuing your prey in their environment. If you don't know how, we offer monthly classes on spear fishing, covering everything from physiology and technique to state rules and regulations and what fish to look for.
Custom Tours: Are you interested in going on one of our activities, but the schedules don't match up? Gather some friends and family and book a custom tour with us! Minimum six people to book; some restrictions apply. Call 808-449-5215 for more information.
