The kayaks are for rent at Honeymoon Island, FL. People rent them to paddle over to nearby Caladesi Island State Park, voted America's Best Beach in 2008.

Ok I am really jealous of this image. I looked all over Maui for something like this. I guess I will have to come and hang out in your neck of the woods. I love the angle and the contrasting blues. The wood casing frames it beautifully.

Heather, Karen, Neal, Michelle, Mary and Judy, thank you all for your kind comments! Heather, I am surprised you didn't find kayaks around in Hawaii! Even if you didn't , I am just jealous that you were there and I wasn't!
Neal, some photographers in a group I sort of belong to recently rented kayaks and went over to the island with all their camera gear to shoot some birds. They were more gutsy than me; I don't trust my kayaking ability that much! I would be too afraid that I, along with my camera and gear, would end up in the water! #9582485
