YouTube player

Explore Kailua with local watermen on the wa’a (canoe) as we share the history and cultural significance of it to Hawaiian and Polynesian Cultures. Paddle the clear waters of Kailua as we journey to explore our offshore islets – private wildlife sanctuary islands. Come join us for a unique Hawaiian experience unlike any other in the world!

During the adventure, you will be given the opportunity to explore the ecosystem as we paddle through the glistening, clear coral reefs of Kailua with honu (sea turtles) and other native sea life. While on the islands enjoy the views of the Ko’olau range surrounding us as our watermen tell the mo’olelo (stories) of the rich history of the region. Explore and learn about the many native inhabitants that call the Mokuluas home.

On the ride back, you’ll have the unique opportunity as we catch some waves on the canoe and surf Hawaiian style; an original favorite pastime of local Hawaiians
