Let’s go Paddling!!! Heeia to Kualoa 2011

Aloha Paddlers!!

Our last paddle on May 7 to the Sea Cave in the Moku Manu Islets was a good one!  Conditions were great with a 10 MPH breeze out of the east and a mild, easterly swell that was mostly blocked by the 2 Islets where the cave is located.  This created nice, calm conditions in the area of the cave where we got all 14 kayaks into the cave for some great pics and fun times snorkeling the area.  The east wind made for a nice following sea for the final leg to  Hale Koa beach where we took out at about 1:00PM.  A really good paddle……..

Our next adventure will be this coming Sunday, May 28,   from Heeia State boat Harbor in Kaneohe to Kualoa Beach park(Chinaman’s Hat).  It’s a 7 mile paddle including a stop at the sand bar.  This is a great paddle to break in new paddlers as if the conditions are mellow we can go outside the reef from the middle of the bay to Chinamans hat, and if there is a swell that’s creating a lot of breaking waves on the reef, we can stay inside the reef in protected water on the way there.

We’ll be meeting at the canoe Halau at Heeia state boat harbor at 8:00 AM, the shuttle drivers will leave at 8:20, and we’ll plan on putting in at 9:00 AM with a finish time between noon and 1 pm.

This is going to a fun, easy paddle with some good surf-spots along the way and a chance to check out Mokolii Islet(Chinamans Hat) where you can get some spectacular pics from the top of it!  Also great views of the Koolau range from the fringe reef at Kaneohe Bay, so I’ll be looking forward to seeing you there on Sunday!!

See you Sunday!!

Aloha,

    Bob,
    Trying to see if a handful of us can make it to the trip tomorrow. We tried calling the number but we got no answer. I suppose we can meet at the location and rent kayaks there? Please let me know if we need to do something else. I will be checking my email first thing in the morning. thanks!
