Sandy in clam water off of Kaena Point

Makua to Kaena Point 2024

Again, only Sandy and I made this exceptionally beautiful paddle from Makua Beach to Ka’ena Point and back. This was about a 9 mile paddle as we paddled a little way around the point. The weather was stunningly good with very little to no wind and very clear and beautiful blue water. At one point we saw a turtle underwater. Wow! Sandy also spotted a pod of porpoises heading our way near the end. That was cool even though they only stayed up on the surface for a short time so we couldn’t dive them. This was a no carpool paddle, and no fish were caught. Still we hit the weather perfectly and we need to keep this paddle on our schedule. The route from the cars to the beach is now pretty steep and sketchy due to the concrete barriers that have been placed along the parking area. That has to be adjusted for by parking further way from the break in the wall and doing a two-person carry of our boats down to the beach.
