We invite you to relive a part of Hawaiian History and walk in the footsteps of the Ali‘i (Chief, Royalty) as you experience a traditional Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Tour! Learn about the illegal occupation of Hawai‘i and the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy in 1893. Participate in traditional Hawaiian Chants (oli) as you paddle our canoe (hoe wa’a) along the south coast of Maui…while taking in breathtaking views of Haleakala, West Maui Mountains, Lana‘i, Kaho‘olawe/Kanaloa, and Molokini! Paddle our canoe to Turtletown off Wailea Point and see the honu and honu‘ea (Hawaiian Green Sea & Hawksbill Turtles) that frequent this beautiful area! Swim with the turtles if you’d like or watch as they swim alongside the canoe!
Learn about the Polynesian Voyagers as they sailed the Polynesian Triangle (New Zealand to Rapa Nui to Hawaii) using Celestial navigation/wayfinding.
In honoring the wisdom and knowledge passed on by generations from our ancestors, we are inspired to share the wisdom, values and traditions that sustained the Hawaiian culture in the past…and into the future…!
Your journey departs beautiful Wailea Beach, in south Maui! Wailea in ancient Hawaii translated to ”Waters of Sacred Happiness”! Come join us for an unforgettable experience for the whole family!
