We’re talking about canoes! Come out to Maunalua Bay in Hawaii Kai any morning and you’ll find a variety of dating opportunities. But ours starts with two one-man Outrigger canoes, very nice toys to enhance your dating life (unless you ram each other, flip over, or can’t stand the water).
The Bay always reminds me of a Richard Scarry children’s book, with all of the different animal characters driving their cars, boats, and other vehicles around. There are folks in their motor boats, kayaks, jet skis, and surf boards all heading out to play in the ocean.
Dos and Don’ts on this date:Do chart your course to avoid missing the channel and hitting reefs. *For more information on outrigger paddling, go to any of these sites
Amazingly, we still saw wild life…a huge turtle that hung out under my canoe. Just beyond the last green channel marker and over toward China Walls (Portlock) is where dolphin pods and whales can sometimes be seen.
Cost: FREE, if you can find canoes or kayaks*
