Firefighters, lifeguards and the Coast Guard rescued three people in rough sea and weather conditions off Mokuleia on the North Shore early this afternoon.
Firefighters brought two men to shore after they got into trouble while kayaking at about 12:20 p.m.
A 28-year-old woman was swept further out, past the surf break, without safety gear or a kayak, said Shayne Enright, an Emergency Services spokeswoman.
Enright said the weather was windy and rainy and waves were breaking with 6- to 10-foot faces.
A Coast Guard plane spotted the woman and lifeguards brought her back to shore on a rescue watercraft.
Enright said the woman and her husband, who was rescued in the kayak, were visiting from California. A 63-year-old Maui man, the woman’s father, was also rescued in a kayak.
