Honolulu Ocean Safety officials rescued six people from a fallen canoe about a mile away from Black Point this morning.
According to the Honolulu Emergency Services Department, a 911 call just before 10:40 am reported six paddlers suffering from rough seas and windy conditions.
A Honolulu fire department official said the canoe’s outrigger support broke down, making it impossible to keep the ship upright.
The Marine Safety Rescue Team arrived at the capsized canoe and carried the paddler to the shore by 11:18 am.
According to the HFD, the HFD unit and the crew of the emergency medical services were waiting, but Paddler did not report any injuries.
Ocean Safety Rescue 1 and HFD Rescue 1 boats towed the canoe to the club’s canoe house near Ala Wai Boat Harbor, HFD said.
Fire officials advise boaters and canoe paddlers to provide two practical forms of communication and store their mobile phones in waterproof containers in case of an emergency.
