Take an adventure on a 3-hour guided tour in a Hawaiian Sailing Canoe! The journey on our wa’a (Hawaiian canoe) is an experience in itself. Sail the beautiful waters of Kailua with local watermen while learning about the history and cultural significance of it to our Hawaiian and Polynesian Cultures. Join us for Hawaii’s most traditional ocean experience unlike any other in the world!
Our unique tour offers a relaxing sea voyage to the twin Mokulua Islands. Sit back and soak in the breath-taking view as we journey together to the islands.
Upon landing on the larger of the two islands, Moku Nui, you will be given the opportunity to explore the ecosystem as we swim through the glistening, clear coral reefs of Kailua. We provide snorkeling equipment to our guests at no extra charge. We want you to see the stunning, colorful tropical fish and the many honu (sea turtle) sharing the Hawaiian waters with us.
Afterwards, relax on the shoreline of the island and enjoy the views of the Ko’olau range surrounding us as our watermen tell the mo’olelo (stories) of various Ahupua’a (land divisions) that make up Kailua and the Ka Iwi coastline. With indigenous seabirds such as ‘Iwa (Great Frigate) and ‘Ua‘u kani (Wedge-tail Shearwater) flying close by, the Hawaiian Monk seals that use the island’s shoreline for a sunny resting spot, and the various other native wildlife treasures that make the island their home, the journey to the Twin Islands is an amazing destination.
After exploring the island’s shoreline, hike to the backside of the island with us as we go for a refreshing swim in the stunning Queen’s Bath. This natural salt water pool carved into the side of the island offers a truly spectacular view that words cannot describe!
Finishing up our adventure on the island, head back to the beach and join us for some of the local Hawaiian treats and refreshments we provide as we relax and take in the serenity of Moku Nui’s isolated beach.
From sailing through the stunning Hawaiian waters on our wa’a, to exploring the beautiful native habitat of Moku Nui and taking a refreshing dip in the Queen’s Bath, our tours offer a Kailua experience like no other.
