Coconut Island, or also known by it's Hawaiian name, Moku o Loʻe, is one of many snorkel sites that Kama'aina Kayak and Snorkel Eco-Ventures visits in Kane'ohe Bay. The Island is known for it's storied history; from being the Hollywood filming site for "Gilligan's Island," to a playboy billionaire's private mansion, to now being an important site for Marine Biology research, who knows what it will be next!
Despite all of the changes that Coconut Island has gone through in the last century, it remains an incredible habitat for coral, Hawaiian green sea turtles, and countless reef fish. The Island is currently leased to the Hawai'i Institute of Marine Biology at University of Hawai'i. For more History on the island and what it has to offer www.hawaii.edu/himb/history.
