Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with today's Groupon: for $29, you get a full-day rental of a single-person kayak or standup paddleboard at Windward Watersports in Kailua (a $59 value).
Windward Watersports' wave-riding experts match visitors with various means of nautical transportation, unveiling a fleet of watercrafts for traversing the sun-sparkling waters of Kailua Bay. After slipping into provided life vests, seafarers mount single-person kayaks and comb their ores through frothy spumes en route to the Mokulua islets, where they'll potentially spot 11 species of seabirds and 3 species of Captain Ahab. Standup paddleboards grant paddlers elevated views of clear waters as they glide through the pristine bay, sidling next to sea turtles and other native wildlife.
Windward Watersports stocks equipment for all body types and accommodates riders of all skill levels with helpful tips. The sea-centric company prides itself on maintaining the delicate beauty of Kailua, educating visitors on the importance of respecting ecosystems in addition to outfitting all baby turtles in rubber floaties.
