Hawaii Marine Corps Air Station Kaneohe Bay





Hawaii is a great place to get stationed because of all the outdoor activities offered. Beautiful beaches and warm oceans await you here in this tropical paradise.

Kaneohe Bay is on Oahu, where Hawaii’s state capital Honolulu is located. Hawaii can be very expensive because it is a vacation hot spot, but the expensive costs of living will be made up for in a cost of living allowance and the general beauty of this duty station.

There are 19 islands in total that make up the state of Hawaii and provide a great point to begin exploring this beautiful place. There are several other bases located on Oahu:  Pearl Harbor Naval Base, Schofield Army Barracks, and Hickam Air Force Base.


The weather in Hawaii is beautiful. The average high is in the 80’s and the average low is in the 60’s. Kaneohe Bay usually gets about 4-5 inches of rain a month.
