What we're about

Our Club's purpose is to introduce new paddlers to the joy of kayaking safely in Hawaii, to build paddler's skills, experience, and confidence, learn how to make good judgments when on the ocean, and have fun while you explore Oahu in a way that most people will never have a chance to.

Each month we paddle a route that is from 5 to 9 miles along a section of Oahu's coastline. If you attend all of our outings, you will paddle entirely around the Island of Oahu in just over 1 year, develop kayaking skills, ocean experience, and a new network of friends to create your own adventures with.

Most of our longer paddles have 1/2 way point stops so new members can stop there, or begin the paddle at that point if the entire long course is longer than the are comfortable paddling.

So, come join us to make new friends, and learn how to enjoy the beautiful ocean that surrounds us!

Kayak from Kaimana Beach Park to Keehi Lagoon - Waikiki Views! 7.6 Miles

Kaimana Beach Park to Keehi Lagoon - Waikiki Views! 7.6 Miles - Aloha Paddlers, This is a paddle in the heart of Honolulu and will go from Kaimana Beach park to Keehi Lagoon, which is just over 7.5 miles, and may all be down-wind........ if we have our normal Trade wind conditions. We’ll get some great views of Waikiki against the backdrop of the Koolau Mountains, some good surf spots along the way and we’ll check out the many islets that populate Keehi Lagoon as we paddle through it to Keehi Lagoon Beach Park. So, Here’s the plan……Meet at Kaimana Beach park near the Natatorium at 8:00 AM. We’ll offload kayaks and leave at 8:20 to shuttle cars over to Keehi lagoon Park. This should allow us to put in from Kaimana at about 9:15 to 9:30 or so, and finish up at Keehi Lagoon Park at about 12:00 PM. Okay Gang, I hope to see you all on this paddle and hope that you all had a great start to the year! AND I hope you'll join us again for our paddles in the rest of the year! *==== CHANGED YOUR MIND? ==== Be sure to check the Meetup – Hua Iki web site for any changes and updates and to change your RSVP if you change your mind. ==== KNOW YOUR LIMITS ==== Know your capabilities, limits, forecast conditions and check your equipment before you go.

Kayak from Keehi Lagoon to Pu'uloa/Ewa Beach – 8 miles

Ke'ehi Lagoon Beach Park

Keehi Lagoon to Pu'uloa/Ewa Beach – 8 miles – We’ll be paddling from Keehi Lagoon Park to Ewa beach Park, a distance of 8.1 miles. This is a part of Oahu not many people get to see because we will be paddling in front of the airport and the entrance to Pearl Harbor. We often see dolphins near the airport on this paddle. If the winds are “trades”, it will be all downwind after we leave Keehi Lagoon,which would make it a nice easy paddle. If you have your kayak sail, you’ll want to have it on this one! If you don’t have one, you’re welcome to rent one from Twogood Kayaks store [masked]) , although they have a limited number of rental sails available. They work really well if you have a tandem kayak, or a single with a rudder. So, here’s the plan…….Meet at 7:30 AM at Keehi Lagoon park near the Canoe Halau, which is as the VERY END of the road that goes through the park. We’ll off-load boats and set up the car shuttle which will be leaving at 8:00 AM. It’s a rather lengthy shuttle around Pearl Harbor, so I’m guessing we’ll have the shuttle complete and plan on paddling away at between 9 and 9:30 AM. This should put our arrival time at Ewa Beach Park at about 1:30 PM . *==== CHANGED YOUR MIND? ==== Be sure to check the Meetup – Hua Iki web site for any changes and updates and to change your RSVP if you change your mind. ==== KNOW YOUR LIMITS ==== Know your capabilities, limits, forecast conditions and check your equipment before you go.

Kayak from Makapuu to Kailua - Mokulua Islands!! 8.6 Miles

Baby Makapuu Tide Pools

Baby Makapuu to Kailua Beach Park - 8.6 miles. - On this route, 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 to 9:30 and finishing at Kailua Beach at about 1:00 - 1:30 PM depending on how much time we hang out at the Mokes. One of 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!! *==== CHANGED YOUR MIND? ==== Be sure to check the Meetup – Hua Iki web site for any changes and updates and to change your RSVP if you change your mind. ==== KNOW YOUR LIMITS ==== Know your capabilities, limits, forecast conditions and check your equipment before you go.
