She must have ditched the kayak then attempted the swim to shore.
Thanks, Playa. Based on the GPS coordinates in that report (if I'm reading the report from Periodico De Frente correctly), the larger gray kayak was found fairly close to Mayan Palace, about 1.7 miles south of the shore, and about 8 miles east of their Playa Encanto launch. The other smaller green kayak was found about 20 miles south of Playa Encanto, and about 1.3 miles east of San Jorge Island. In both cases, is seems that both kayaks were recovered east of Playa Encanto, one fairly close to shore and the other pretty far south. It's interesting that the kayaks were recovered several (six?) days after the search began.There’s a pic of the kayaks on Facebook. One was located near San Jorge.

Green one was found near bird islandEver been on a search and rescue operation? Over water??
A fixed wing aircraft rarely spots anything unless it's a brightly colored life raft or boat.
A helo is almost as bad but at least the search can be closer to the water.
A human with only the head above the surface is totally hopeless.
Those kayaks could have traveled a hundred miles back and forth with the currents and winds.
