There are some islands located off the coast of Oahu where you can kayak. My sister and I would like to visit them on a kayak but what happens if we can't make it all the way out there once we start?
The islands you are referring to are the Mokulua Islands. First of all realize that they lie only one mile off the coast of Lani Kai Beach on Oahu. If the conditions are difficult on a particular day, the tour will in all likelihood be canceled. Over and above that, you will always be accompanied by a guide. In a worst case scenario the guide would be able to assist you on your return voyage back to the beach but over and above that, based upon your initial movements on the water when you first get on your kayak, he would be able to make an accurate determination as to whether you were fit enough and coordinated enough to withstand the short paddle to the Mokulua Islands from the Kailua/Lani Kai shoreline. Radio contact is also maintained with the main base and additional resources could be mustered to assist in your return. More than any other factor however, I think you will be able to make the final determination once you are in the water as to whether you will feel as though you are up for the minimal challenge. Thousands of people do this trip each year and it is one of the most rewarding and fun excursions the island of Oahu has to offer.
