Kauai Ocean Recreation Experience, or KORE, is designed to help both Kauai residents and their families who are physically challenged and/or have special needs, to get back into the ocean with the assistance of trained professionals. KORE had its first Beach Day on August 15, 2009. Originally created by a small but passionate group of Kauai watermen and women, firefighters and physical rehab therapists, KORE's Beach Days have now grown into a monthly event which now boasts over 400 participants and volunteers working together to make the beach and ocean accessible to all. We are a grassroots, volunteer driven, non profit organization under the umbrella of the Kauai YMCA. We are dedicated to helping both Kauai residents and visitors who are physically challenged or have special needs to get back into the ocean with the assistance of trained professionals. Whether it be surfing or just relaxing in the water, our intent is to get our residents and their families to once again enjoy a day at the beach.
