MALIBU—Six kayakers were blown nearly a mile out to sea on November 23.
Winds were blowing at 47-miles- per- hour as the six kayakers were blown south.
A Port Hueneme-based fleet of squid-fishing boats were the first to assist in the rescue of the distressed kayakers. The fisherman had been nearby because of a concentration of squid due to the ocean currents near Point Mugu.
Two of the kayaks were snared by the fishing boat fleet to prevent them from being taken even further out to sea. Lifeguards then arrived and used rescue jet skis to tow the kayaks back to shore.
The rescue was a combined effort between lifeguards from both Ventura and Los Angeles counties, and California State Parks.
Paramedics at Countyline Beach determined the kayakers to be fine.
