Outrigger Canoe Paddling Adventure

Location: East Oahu, Oahu

Paddle your way through Kailua Bay with ease as our local watermen guide you safely through crystal blue waters to our destination; the Mokulua Islands. Along the journey you will learn about local history and the cultural significance of the Wa’a (canoe) to our Hawaiian and Polynesian Cultures while gliding through the waters. Surrounded with the views of the Ko'olau range, Mokapu Crater and Ka'ohao Coast (Lanikai), is a true breathtaking experience. This a paddle tour is an action packed adventure you won’t forget!

Though experience isn't needed, physical exertion is as we work as a team to paddle the canoe to the Mokuluas.


What to Expect

Our paddling expedition begins as we disembark beautiful Kailua Beach. As our outrigger canoe makes way through the glistening waters of Kailua Bay and Lanikai, our guides direct you as you get to partake in a true Hawaiian hands-on experience; a paddle venture like no other. Experiencing up-close the surrounding openness of the Hawaii waters along the way is truly amazing!

The journey will continue as we reach our destination; the larger of the two twin islands, Moku Nui. One of Hawaii’s Native Bird Sanctuaries, Moku Nui is a natural home for some of Hawaii’s most valued treasures. Blanketed with Oahu’s native plants and its nesting birds, you’re sure to encounter native wildlife. In fact, the island’s beach is known for the resting spot of a rare find, the protected monk seals.

The natural treasure finds continue in Moku Nui’s surrounding waters. The island’s blue waters offer a snorkeling experience to Oahu’s underwater sea life. You’ll have a chance to see Hawaii’s coral reefs, colorful tropical fish, and possibly a honu (sea turtle). Our guides provide you with snorkeling equipment at no extra charge, so you won’t miss out. Afterall, seeing a honu is a Hawaii experience!

Join us as we venture along the island’s natural terrain to the other side. There you will discover a true natural treasure; the Queen’s Bath. Naturally carved into the island’s east side, the 6-ft deep natural tidepool is an amazing find! The Queen’s Bath is truly one of Oahu’s hidden gems.

As we prepare to disembark Moku Nui, join us on the beach one last time and relax with some local Hawaiian treats and refreshments that our watermen have prepared for you.

Upon returning to Kailua Bay, if the conditions are right, our steersmen will guide the canoes onto the waves for an epic experience; He’e Nalu Wa’a (canoe surfing)! This unique Hawaiian canoe experience and thrill of wave riding is a cultural experience, deep in Hawaiian roots, that was once only reserved for Island Royalty. It’s an amazing Hawaiian experience! There is none other on the island quite like it.
