I read about this kayak trip in 'Oahu Revealed' (pg 192) and really want to do it! It sounds amazingly beautiful.
Basically, we'd rent kayaks near Kailua Bay, put our kayaks in the water at the pier north of He'eia State Park, and paddle towards Kappa Island until we reach the "sunken island", where we'd relax on the beach for a bit before heading back.
Although the authors describe the ocean as typically being very calm here, it is a little over 2 miles to reach the sunken island, which sounds like a long way!
Does this sound like a do-able and safe trip to make? (although I realize there is some risk involved since it is the ocean of course) We are young and in good shape.
Thanks for any input
