We are two families with teen-agers visiting Oahu in August. We’ll be staying on the North Shore but are interested in going kayaking. We have some kayak experience but I would consider us beginners…and parental units are not in the best shape.
I’m trying to decide if we should stick with the trip from Kailua Beach to the Mokulua Islands or try Kaneohe Bay.
If we go to Kaneohe Bay, I need some advice! I see online that Holokai Kayak Adventures is operating guided tours to Coconut Island out of He'eia State Park, but we would prefer to be self-guided.
Oahu Revealed describes a paddle from a pier just north of the park out to Kapapa Island, passing Ahu O Laka Sandbar. Are we going to kill ourselves doing this? (IOW-will we be able to move the next day?) And is it worth it? Or is the underwater “view” better heading toward Coconut Island?
Please help me before I lead my group astray…. :)
