Destination 3° (Degrees): 3° of latitude between the Hawaiian Islands, more than 200 nautical miles, 2 female stand up paddlers, 7 legendary open-ocean Hawaiian Island channels and 1 goal - to raise awareness and funds for the Algalita Marine Research Foundation (AMRF).
Right now, they're on Oahu getting ready to paddle 65 miles across the Ka'ie'iewaho channel between Oahu and Kauai guided by a full moon. They've already paddled the 'Alenuihaha (Big Island to Maui), 'Alalakeiki (Maui to Kaho'olawe), Auau (Maui to Lanai), Pailolo (Maui to Molokai) and Kaiwi (Molokai to Oahu) channels. After the Ka'ie'iewaho, all that's left is the Kaulakahi channel between Kauai and Ni'ihau.
They're not just stand up paddling either... they're diving, hiking and exploring all of the islands and logging their observations and experiences for us to follow. How awesome is that?
