Kailua Bay is generally a sleepy little patch of ocean. During a special event, such as the Queen Liliuokalani Outrigger Canoe Races things can get a little out of hand! Canoes, boats carrying race officials and photographers, as well as the local fishermen, dive boats and tour boats compete for space around the aging Kailua Pier. Occasionally a cruise ship will show up and add to the melee.
