Among our favorite Maui activities, relive a part of Hawaiian history and walk in the footsteps of the Ali’i in this traditional Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe tour.
Your journey departs beautiful Wailea Beach in South Maui. Wailea in ancient Hawaii meant “Waters of Sacred Happiness”. Come join us for an authentic Hawaiian experience.
What we love:
- The Hawaiian Outrigger Experience is led by warm, genuine and extremely knowledgeable guides
- Maui’s southern coastline is stunning, with black lava outcroppings, golden sand beaches and Haleakala volcano rising up in the distance
- Learn how to share hā, the breath of life, that is the foundation of the Hawaiian greeting of “Aloha”
Participate in traditional Hawaiian chants (oli) as you paddle your canoe (hoe wa’a) along the South Coast of Maui, taking in breathtaking views of Haleakala, West Maui Mountains, Lana’i, Kanaloa (Kaho’olawe) and Molokini. Come see the honu and honu’ea (Hawaiian Green Sea & Hawksbill turtles) and learn about the Polynesian Voyagers who sailed the Polynesian Triangle (New Zealand to Rapa Nui to Hawaii) using only celestial wayfinding. In honoring the wisdom and knowledge passed on by generations from our ancestors…we are inspired to share the values and traditions that have sustained our Hawaiian Culture in the past.
