KEALAKEKUA BAY, Hawaii: The Kealakekua Bay kayak tour company that was with New York teen Tyler Madoff when he was swept out to sea may lose its permit to take visitors to the Captain Cook monument.

The Department of Land and Natural Resources says Hawaii Pack and Paddle violated the terms of its permit on July 4th when the group – subcontracted by the Colorado based Bold Earth youth tour company – took 13 teens to the Kaawaloa site.

Nolan Keola Reed, one of the guides on the day of the tragedy, is credited with saving another boy from a fate similar to Madoff’s.

The Board of Land and Natural Resources will consider the DLNR recommendation that the permit for Hawaii Pack and Paddle be cancelled during its meeting on Oahu on Friday.
