People come to Hawaiian Ocean Sports to get the ultimate Hawaiian experience. They get to engage with the beautiful sea while learning about our island’s rich ahupua’a (culture).

Making Travel Worth the Trip
Part of Urfberg’s article “Making travel worth the trip”documents her day with our Hawaiian Outrigger Experience.
In the article, Urfberg talks about being deeply ne’e (moved) by the way Kevin Hoke, Hawaiian Ocean Sport’s president, connects to and shares his Hawaiian culture.
“It re-awakened the part of me that pays attention to the world and honors those that claim and protect their ancestral roots,” she wrote.
Urfberg called her outrigger canoe ride “fabulous.” We agree! She also said the canoe ride was a “meaningful and rich excursion.”
We had an amazing time showing Urfberg the breathtaking island of Maui from the wai (water)! We would love to show you the Aloha way too!
