I am headed to Maui and Kona for 2 weeks end of July/beginning of August, and have a 4.8 mile OW swim a week after I get back. Need to swim, will find a pool, but would like to OW swim
In Maui will be in Kihei so could go Wailea or Lahaina direction.
Kona will be mostly on a dive boat from Sat nite to Fri morning, but I will have a couple days available before and after for a swim, staying at the King Kam.
Anyone know of any drop in friendly groups? Safe to swim from Dig Me beach alone? Are there buoys set out there all the time? Boat traffic? What's the deal with the swim to the Cook memorial... That looks pretty cool.
