Have you ever wanted to know what it's like to cross the Kaiwi Channel from Molokai’s west end of the island and paddle into the finish line of Maunalua Bay, on Oahu’s east side?

The COVA M2OX17 has eight open spots which include everything necessary for you to cross the channel from gear, to use of boards and equipment, pre-open water training, along with meals, transportation, and accommodation during your six days in Hawaii.
