3 stand-up paddlers rescued off Kahala

Honolulu firefighters rescued three stand-up paddlers who ran into trouble in waters off the Kahala Hotel over the weekend.

At approximately 10:25 a.m. Sunday, firefighters responded to male paddlers in distress. Honolulu Fire Spokesman Capt. Kevin Mokulehua said the three male stand-up paddlers started paddling from Maunalua Bay and experienced difficulty in the water due to the strong winds.

Paddlers in canoes were in the area at the time and assisted them. Mokulehua said the stand-up paddlers held onto canoes until fire crews and lifeguards on jet skis and a rescue boat arrived.

The stand-up paddlers were approximately a mile off of Kahala Hotel when they were rescued and brought to shore at Kaimana Beach.

No injuries were reported.
