If you decide to join Keahiakahoe, you'll need to complete an application form and pay the annual dues.
Wear something you don't mind getting wet, such as board or paddling shorts, t-shirt or tank top, and rubber slippers to wear outside the canoe.
The open-ocean conditions surrounding our islands led to the development of an outrigger canoe different from those of other Pacific islanders. Although outriggers now are raced throughout Polynesia, outrigger canoe racing, ancient and modern, seems to have originated in Hawai`i.
Today's HCRA-approved racing canoes are standardized in length and weight to allow both an observance of tradition and a level playing field. Here you have a list of opinions about Outrigger canoe and you can also give us your opinion about it.
You will see other people's opinions about Outrigger canoe and you will find out what the others say about it. Unlike a single-hulled canoe, an outrigger or double-hull canoe generates stability as a result of the distance between its hulls rather than due to the shape of each individual hull. In the image below, you can see a graph with the evolution of the times that people look for Outrigger canoe.

What is a Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Tour?Let one of our knowledgeable Maui Outrigger Canoe Tour guides share their Culture, Hawaiian place names, Hawaiian marine names and passion for paddling with you on a Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Tour today! An outrigger canoe tour from Makena in the heart of Turtle Town lends itself to many great options for snorkeling with green Hawaiian sea turtles.
Hawaiian Paddle Sports is absolutely, hands down, the only company you want to work with for paddle sports on Maui. Offered as a part of Jean-Michel Cousteau’s “Ambassadors of the Environment Program” this fun, educational and cultural tour is one of our guest favorites.  Honokahua Bay (known as DT Fleming today), is the departure point for the Honolua Bay Outrigger Canoe Tour.
We booked an outrigger canoe tour and snorkel adventure at Honolua Bay and it was the best tour experience we’ve had on Maui.
If you’re an outrigger canoe, dragon boat or other disciplined paddler looking for a long paddle while on vacation, the Molokini Outrigger Canoe Challenge might be a good fit for you.
If you’re lucky enough to be coming to Hawaii between late December and early April, hopefully you’ll be visiting Maui. Every year humpback whales, or Kohola, make the long swim from the great white north to Hawaii so they can mate and give birth.
Seeing a humpback whale from an outrigger canoe is an epic experience that everyone can enjoy: from kids to grandparents, active travelers and everyone in-between. If you absolutely want to snorkel and whale watch on the same tour, we suggest one of our exclusive and private kayak tours where you can determine how much time to spend on each activity. I have lived on Maui for many years and have done a number of whale watches in large boats, small boats, and kayaks. For those of you craving the sights, sounds and experiences of Hawaiian life, the water is a great place to start.
Although you may or may not consider yourself a natural in the water, there are plenty of ways to safely experience the best of Maui, both above and below the surface. At Hawaiian Paddle Sports, we believe in authentic, intimate experiences that get you off the beaten path. If you plan on traveling to Maui between December and May, you’re in for a special treat.
In ancient times, native Hawaiians built outrigger canoes or wa`a for a variety of purposes, including fishing, voyaging and general transportation. Today, outrigger canoes are an important element of Hawaiian culture, combining ancient practices with modern technology.
Kayaking first originated in the arctic tribes of North America, where whale bone and fat were used to shape the boat and keep it waterproof. If you’re looking for a more low key adventure, consider taking a Maui kayak tour, which is very simple to navigate and almost impossible to tip over.
Surfing is one of the oldest practiced sports in history and richly engrained with the Hawaiian culture. Captain King, who traveled to the Hawaiian islands with Captain James Cook, first recorded surfing in his journal in 1779. Today, surfing in Hawaii is bigger than ever and has become a destination for big wave surfers from around the world. In the 1940’s, surf instructors on Oahu would take paddles and stand up on their boards to get a better view of surfers, yelling hints to make them more successful and even riding a few waves themselves using the paddle to help in steering the board. One of the most appealing things about modern stand up paddle boarding is the range of activities it can be used for, including surfing, racing, or pure recreation to get from point A to point B. Whatever kind of adventure you’re looking for, Hawaiian Paddle Sports is here to help you make it everything you imaged.


If you're interested in paddling with Keahiakahoe, or in trying outrigger canoe paddling before you make a commitment, come down to the site at any scheduled practice time and talk to a coach.
Turn in the completed application, your dues payment and current HCRA waiver form to a Keahiakahoe officer or committee member. For daytime practice you should use sunscreen, and consider wearing a hat and long-sleeved shirt. So important was the canoe that the building of a new canoe was a significant event involving most of the members of a village: priests, craftsmen, laborers, helpers. The Hawaiian outrigger is relatively unadorned, with fore and aft hull covers (kupe) and a splashguard (pale kai) to cope with ocean waves and chop. There are records of ancient Hawaiians racing for fun and for wagers, sometimes including life. To race in HCRA-sanctioned events, canoes must weigh a minimum of 400 pounds without `iako, ama, or seat covers, and can be no longer than 45 feet. Smaller canoes often employ a single outrigger on the port side, while larger canoes may employ a single-outrigger, double-outrigger, or double-hull configuration (see also catamaran). As such, the hulls of outrigger or double-hull canoes are typically longer, narrower and more hydrodynamically efficient than those of single-hull canoes. The spars connecting the ama to the main hull (or the two hulls in a double-hull canoe) are called ?iako in Hawaiian and kiato in Maori (with similar words in other Polynesian languages); in Micronesian languages, the term aka is used. And below it, you can see how many pieces of news have been created about Outrigger canoe in the last years. Hokuloa has a diverse membership of all ages and abilities and offers outrigger paddling for both adults and keikis (kids).
Ke Nalu (SUP blog) visits Malama Custom Paddles on Maui and, like he says, it's waterproof artwork. As well as the Huki S1-x Surfski made by Hurricane (Outrigger-zone) he may have a Tiger Built Pahoa there as well.

This environmentally sustainable experience is one not to miss.  Watch the video above then call us to start planning your Maui ocean adventure with Hawaiian Paddle Sports.
Surrounded by calm waters most mornings, this is the ideal tour for families with small children, first time paddlers and those looking for a calm ocean experience. Strong winds make for a challenging paddle to Honolua Bay, so we’ll tuck in close to the shore and stop along the way to let our bodies rest and eyes take in the beauty of the this raw undeveloped coastline.
Arianna, our guide, was very knowledgeable and taught us so much about Hawaiian culture, conservation and the ocean.
Keep in mind we need 5 paddlers to fill the canoe, so this tour is best for parties with 3 to 5 guests so we may try to find extra paddlers to help get us there. We depart early in the morning, so you’ll get to see the Sun rise over Mauna Haleakala as we paddle towards Molokini Crater. It is physically demanding and paddlers must be healthy, in good physical shape and have paddling experience. Kaleo was a great guide and he brought along another helper, Mary and his son to make the 4 person canoe complete.
The waters off of Maui’s South and West shores are a Humpback Whale Sanctuary with whales everywhere you look! An Outrigger Canoe is the best option of self-powered vessels for whale watching for several reasons. With my parents in town I wanted something unique and the private kayak whale watch was exactly what we wanted. Why else would you travel thousands of miles to a rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, right?! Every year, an estimated 12,000 humpback whales swim over 3,000 miles from the gulf of Alaska to Hawaii to breed, calve and nurse their young in the warm, shallow waters around Hawaii. The banana-like shape of the canoe and addition of the ama (outrigger stabilizer) was useful for surfing waves and increased maneuverability. Fiberglass, for instance, allows for more stability, making outrigger canoeing a perfect activity for the whole family.
Since islanders have long been masters of navigating the ocean, it’s not a stretch to say that kayaking came naturally as a popular water sport in Hawaii.
Whether you’re the type who wants to paddle as fast as possible to see the beautiful Maui shoreline or cruise on a more relaxing, calm tour to see the sea turtles and underwater beauty, the perk of private tours is that you get to choose! SUP is a great workout and gives riders a great vantage point to spot some of Hawaii’s most beloved friends, from sea turtles to spinner dolphins to humpback whales.
With private lessons and a strong commitment to Hawaiian values, we are here to make your experience unique, exciting, and memorable. The only pre-requisites are that you can swim and that you fill out a current HCRA Insurance waiver. If you decide outrigger paddling is a sport you want to pursue, we'll give you advice on how to choose the right paddle.
Our satellite practice site for the masters and women is located down Sand Island Access Road.
From choosing the right tree to launching the new canoe, each step in the process had to be done correctly with the proper ritual and respect to preserve the life of the tree in the canoe and create a canoe that would, in turn, sustain the lives of those who used it.
While most associations in the Islands, including ours, allow clubs to race fiberglass canoes, at the annual Hawai`i State Championship Regatta all crews must race in koa canoes. The sailing canoes are an important part of the Polynesian heritage and are raced and sailed in Hawaii, Tahiti, Samoa and by the Maori of New Zealand.


Compared to other types of canoes, outrigger canoes can be quite fast, yet are also capable of being paddled and sailed in rougher water.
If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable. To get a replacement, please simply return the model (It's the buyers responsibility to return the shipment within 14 days after notifying me).
Start your tour with an in depth instruction into the craft of outrigger-canoeing and learn a bit of the history of the sport.
If you do not agree with any part of these terms and conditions, you should not use this website. In ancient days wooden Wa`a were used for transportation, fishing, voyaging and sport for chiefs or Ali`i. Never more than 6 guests per tour, it’s a great option for guests looking to learn about Hawaiian Culture and snorkel in Turtle Town without the masses. If weather permits, we’ll stop at Slaughter House beach, Mokuleia, to learn about how the Hawaiians not only lived… but THRIVED in the Hawaiian Islands prior to western contact.
This tour is really about the experience of paddling to Molokini over anything else, so it doesn’t share the same educational and cultural information that our other shoreline tours are known for. The streamlined design allows for easy paddling so you can cover more ground on your whale watch tour with 6 people paddling in synchronicity. Oh, and if time permits, we’ll stop for a quick snorkel on the way back to shore, but usually we like to spend the whole tour playing with whales. Our guide took us out about 1.5 miles of the coast and we were surrounded by whales about 50 yards away. Kohola, or humpback whales, have been protected as an endangered species since 1966 and are treated with great respect as aumakua, or family guardians, among the people of Hawaii. One of the best places in the world to see these majestic creatures is the Auau Channel, a shallow area between West Maui, Lana’i and Molokai, and we happily offer kayak, outrigger canoe and SUP tours to offer you the best views of these amazing animals, free of crowded boats and loud engines.
Ali’i, or royalty, were given longer canoes and often raced each other for entertainment, leading to the still-popular sport of outrigger canoe racing. While we do offer options for private Maui outrigger canoe tours, we find it’s more enjoyable for everyone when all seats are full. No matter what you prefer, our knowledgeable and helpful guides will make sure you set the pace while they lead the way. It’s definitely an activity you should try at least once, and our team of surf instructors are always there to give you tips to make your first Maui surf lesson a success! If you’ve never tried it, balance can be tricky at first, but practice makes perfect! For other reasons please contact me to get a return authorization, restocking fees applied.
You will head out into Maunalua Bay and paddle in the surf for about 1.5 hours, enjoying the mystique and charm of this craft.
Today modern fiberglass design allows for a more stable, performance based canoe, perfect for individuals, small groups, families and children.
With many snorkeling locations to choose from among the various reef formations in Turtle Town, our canoe guides will keep you away from the crowded snorkel boats.
We’ll dig up a fresh water spring, make rope from coconut fibers and learn about the Hawaiian’s ahupua’a system.
We all helped get the outrigger canoe in the water and paddled it to a remote beach where Arianna taught us some Hawaiian history and showed us how to make rope from coconut strands and gave us refreshing drinks from a natural spring bubbling from what I thought was a tide pool and from a coconut which we also ate. Even though this isn’t designed as a snorkel tour, your guide will give you the option to take a quick dip at Molokini to cool off and check out the underwater marine life. By offering private lessons, you’ll experience more one-on-one interaction that will have you riding waves in no time! The paddle, or blade, used by the paddler is single sided, with either a straight or a double-bend shaft. Outrigger canoes have been traversing the Pacific Ocean for approximately 4,000 years, and you can be a part of this amazing pastime that is now the official state sport of Hawaii! Across the channel you’ll see Molokini Crater, with Kahoolawe in the background, which holds strong cultural significance to the Hawaiian People and is the piko, or belly button of the Hawaiian Islands.
Just a short paddle around the corner and you’ll be at the famed Honolua Bay, which is part of the Mokuleia Marine Life Conservation Disctrict. We then hit the outrigger again to an isolated snorkel spot where Ari showed us and taught us about all kinds of Hawaiian reef fish.
If weather and time permit, your guide will take you around the back wall of Molokini before paddling back to Makena in the heart of Turtle Town. We got out before the other large kayak companies and were off on our own with just us and our guide.
We have seen humpback whales swim directly beside SUP riders, giving them a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to come face-to-face (or tail) with one of the world’s most amazing animals. Despite the single paddle, an experienced paddler will only paddle on one side, using a technique such as a J-stroke to maintain heading and stability. Enjoy views of Mauna Kahalawai, Lanai and Haleakala while learning the meaning of their Hawaiian place names. Based on crowds, water clarity and wind direction your outrigger canoe guide will choose the best location to snorkel. It’s about 9 miles of paddling round-trip and takes roughly an hour and a half each direction including some short stops. He had lots of great information on landmarks, whale behavior and kept us feeling comfortable and safe the entire time. During your time in the water our certified marine naturalists will guide you on an interpretive snorkel tour and document the experience for you with digital photography at no additional charge. This was definitely the highlight of our trip and I am now seeing what else we can book with this company before our vacation ends. Due to wind and rougher ocean conditions of this location we don’t recommend it for small children or guests who are uncomfortable in the ocean. Very professional, personal experience that I have not found with any other tour company on Maui.
