Hi -- the outrigger canoe trips look wonderful but I'm wondering how challenging they are.
Specifically, I'm guessing the 6-to-a-boat thing means this is less demanding than kayaking?
And then about the snorkeling -- is the snorkeling off the boat, and if it is, isn't it pretty hard to get in and out of the canoe? I ask because I'm traveling with 3 kids, 8, 11 and 12, who will be new to both snorkeling and canoeing, and a husband who has cancer. He's doing great, is basically in remission right now, but his daily meds do mean he has much less energy and muscle than he used to. I of course wouldn't be pressuring him to go on this outing, but if he can handle it, I think he'd want to...In large part we're doing the trip because he's better now than he probably will be in the future.
Also, I was thinking we'd go with a private tour with Hawaiian Paddle Sports, so that we wouldn't be slowing other people down. So what do you think -- doable and worth it or crazy to consider?
