Oahu, Hawaii
Manana (Rabbit) Island

You can just make out the pier where Paul Tibbetts and I put in on our trip around the SE side of the island of Oahu May 01 2002. We took out at Kuliouou Beach park. Even though the trades were down this day 10-20 knots NE. We still encountered choppy conditions increasing as we paddled South reaching a peak height of 6 feet or higher near the entrance to Hanauma Bay. Where unfortunately kayakers are forbidden to land.We did find a place to land on SW or the protected side of Kawaihoa Point. Great surf spot here almost due South of Koko Head. See trip report.

Near sea level view of put-in
Local divers told me they were following some pregnant leopard sharks here. This time of year Spring they are giving birth in shallow lagoons such as this one.
Other put-ins


These are put-ins that I have used, and maybe totally different when you are there, in other words, paddle at your own risk.

If you want to check weather and ocean conditions before you paddle!
