The Coast Guard is seeking the publicʻs help in finding the owner of a green kayak that was found over a mile off of Oneloa “Big Beach” in Mākena, Maui on Sunday morning.

There are no reports of a missing person in the area.

Anyone with information helping to identify the owner of the kayak is asked to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600.

“We always recommend waterway users to write their contact information on their property,” Sector Honolulu watch stander Masato Nakajima said in a press release.

“We treat every found kayak, surf board, and dive float as if there is someone in trouble. If properly marked, we can contact the owner quickly and identify any need for assistance.”


The Coast Guard offers free “If Found” decals through its Auxiliary, at local harbormasters, from Honolulu Sail and Power Squadron offices and at select marine retail and supply stores.


Coast Guard officials ask waterway users to report any lost kayaks, surf boards, or safety equipment.
