The Wai Kai Lagoon is 52 acres of inland water, protected from the ocean and ideal for paddling and water play.
The Dock at The LineUp has all the latest gear, lessons, team sports, floating cabanas and boat tours. Plenty of fun for both kids and adults.
The best way to enjoy your time on the Wai Kai Lagoon, the “Play Your Way” package allows you to start with one type of watercraft, then swap it out for something different, and in between paddle sessions you can use the AquaBana floating cabanas for a rest. Try as many types of non-motorized watercraft as you want for the same hourly rate as a kayak or SUP rental. This is the best deal that we offer on the Lagoon!
Monday through Friday during the month of September, purchase Play Your Way for one adult and get one child FREE.

In Hawaiian, Nalo Kai can be interpreted with “Nalo” meaning “hidden” or “secret” and “Kai” as “water”, which we think is a befitting name for our unique inland surf wave and adjacent lagoon at Wai Kai. Visitors can access the Nalo Kai Club with a day-pass and Kamaaina can sign up for the The LineUp Local monthly memberships.
The LineUp Local features a monthly membership program that is designed for local residents and longer-term visitors to enjoy the benefits of convenient access to the the Nalo Kai Club, paddle sports on the Wai Kai Lagoon, and surf at the Wai Kai Wave for both individuals and families. Membership may also include price discounts and/or preferred access to special programming and events.
