Paddle Makapuu to Kailua - Mokulua Islands!!

Baby Makapuu to Kailua Beach Park  - 8 miles

Sunday, March 30th, We’ll be starting at Baby Makapuu and paddling first to the Mokulua Islands where we’ll take a break, do a bit of exploration, shoot the slots, paddle the cove, do some cliff jumping??  – all if winds & surf permitting – and then  paddle over to Kailua Beach and take out there. 

Another benefit of this route is that if you’d like to paddle, but don’t want to do the whole 7 or 8 mile route, you can start at Baby Makapuu and take out at Bellows beach, or start at Bellows Beach and meet us as we paddle by, and take out at Kailua after enjoying the Mokes for a while.

So, Here’s the plan:

We’ll meet at Baby Makapuu - also called - Kaupo Beach Park, 300 Kalanianaole Hwy, across the road from Sea Life Park (very West end of parking lot) at 8:00AM .  After offloading boats, we’ll leave to shuttle cars to Kailua Beach Park at 8:20.  After driving back to Baby Makapuu, we should be paddling away from shore at approx. 9:15 and finishing at Kailua Beach at about 1:00 O’clock or so depending on how much time we hang out at the Mokes. 

 The nice thing about this route is that we can stay inside the reef in the protected water if the wind or surf is up, or go out side for a bit of surfing, or head out to Rabbit Island. And then turn over toward the Mokes.  We’ll make our choice depending on conditions and whichever way we decide to go, it’ll be a fun day on the water so we’ll see ya there!!

 For these paddles, its important to know your abilities, limits, and the forecast conditions and check your equipment before you go. Sun Screen, hat and water are a must. Sun glasses, gloves and dry bag are a good idea. Remember to stay in sight of the group and tell others if you are leaving. You alone are responsible for your health and safety. To check conditions, go to:  and check the surf and wind forecast to see what it’s saying at that time. Then, knowing the latest forecast, we can all make the decision about whether to come out for this paddle or to go for a paddle somewhere else, or stay home and clean the yard. Be sure to check the Meetup – Hua Iki site for any changes and updates and to change your RSVP if you change your mind. 

Questions: Call Bob at the store[masked] or on the morning of the paddle, you’ll be able to reach Bob on his cell at 375-1030.

    Weather turned out to be pretty good and it was a fun landing on Moku Nui with proper timing being needed to land right side up! :) All went well and we got a great look at the immense power of the surf on the side of the Island while we were there. Fun bunch of paddlers to make the trip with which made it a good day for everyone!

    I might could do my 8" Frenzy by myself if some body wants to paddle a tandem with my wife. She gets nervous when I surf anyway. Anybody need a paddle with a tandem?

      Hi Steve, if your offer still good I'd like to join. I may need a ride because Da Bus doesn't operate that early on Sunday from Waikiki. Let me know. Ciao
