We rented kayak from “Kailua beach adventures”. The wind was medium that day. I’m not a good swimmer so I was bit scared when we passed waves. But definitely worth going. We skipped flat island and headed to Mokulua directly. My tips to you are:...More

Far from the beautiful scenes of nature we were expecting, our trip to the Mokulua islands was filled with drunken Marines and local kids partying. Besides that, the island was overwhelmed with fellow tourists and our kayaks trying to find a few inches of sand...More

My husband and I kayaked out here. We rented a kayak at a place right near Lanikai Beach (was within walking distance of the beach). We saw sea turtles on the kayak ride to the island. It was amazing! Kayaking here was not difficult. Your...More
