Oahu Ocean Sailing Canoe


Join us as we get off the beaten path and hit the water!  Our Wa’a Pe’a (Hawaiian Sailing Canoe) seats six so you and your party can have a truly intimate adventure with the Hawaiian ocean.  We will meet at Kailua Beach and head out for a three-hour paddling journey exploring the small islands off the Kailua coast. 

Throughout our adventure, our watermen will teach you about the history and cultural significance of the canoe and show you proper paddling technique.  Enjoy beautiful coastline views, and gaze through the clear water at tropical reef fish, honu (Hawaiian sea turtles), and other ocean creatures.  

As we near the small islands off Kailua’s coast, view and learn of the indigenous seabirds, such as ‘Iwa (Great Frigate) and ‘Ua‘u kani (Wedge-tail Shearwater), that call the sanctuary islands home.

We look forward to paddling with you and your ohana!
