Double-Hull Canoe Tour

Learn Hawaiian history, geography and culture while paddling a Hawaiian canoe!

Per Person
Private Charter

This is not an outrigger canoe but is the only Double Hull Canoe on Oahu that is available for lessons/tours. Everyone LOVES the knowledge that is learned and the experience of paddling a Hawaiian Canoe! We begin with 30-minutes of instruction and equipment review, along with a history of the double-hull Hawaiian canoe. Riders will then hop into the canoe and learn for themselves the ancient art of open-ocean travel. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for tourists and locals alike to learn REAL Hawaiian history, geography and folklore and see the “other side” of Diamondhead, along with the majestic cliff-line of Koko Head Crater.

What to Know

The HSA double-hull canoe fits 11 passengers, and will be led by a professional instructor that is lifeguard certified. Riders will be paddling the canoe and taking in the beauty of Maunalua Bay for approximately 1.5 hours. Riders can paddle as much OR as little as they like, allowing all levels of fitness to enjoy the tour. Life jackets are available upon request.
