Hawaii: Kayaking

The first activity on our itinerary was kayaking at Kailua Beach located on the Windward Coast of Oahu. It was a small group tour led by professional kayaking guides. This was our first time kayaking and it was amazing. The water was a beautiful turquoise and we got to see some sea turtles.

Nā Mokulua, commonly known as the Twin Islands. We kayaked to Moku Nui (left) and it took about an hour. Kayaking to the islet was no easy task since we had to paddle against the current. Kayaking back to the beach was faster but you had to be careful that the waves didn't knock you over.

The larger island is Moku Nui and the smaller, Moku Iki.
I would love to live here

Lunch was provided with the tour. It was really nice to sit down and listen to the guides give us history about the island. We also got to try Hawaiian Sun Pass-O-Guava nectar drink. I was hooked! This drink is delicious and refreshing.

A blend of guava juice, passion fruit and orange juice. Delightful!

This 4-hour guided tour was booked through Kailua Sailboards and Kayaks Inc.

I'm glad my kayak didn't flip over ;)
