What you'll do

Sail beautiful Kailua on a Hawaiian Sailing (wa'a) Canoe; a cultural craft designed and used by the Polynesians to navigate and sail the Pacific. Join our watermen, learning about the history and cultural significance of the canoe and Kailua to the Hawaiian and Polynesian people, as we journey to the Mokuluas - a private wildlife sanctuary. It's a Hawaiian experience unlike any other! During the tour, explore the ecosystem as we snorkel through the glistening, clear coral reefs of Kailua with honu (sea turtles) and other native species of fishes. Enjoy the views of the Ko’olau range surrounding us as our watermen tell the mo’olelo (stories) of various Ahupua’a (land divisions) that make up Kailua and the Ka Iwi coastline. View and learn of the indigenous seabirds, such as ‘Iwa (Great Frigate) and ‘Ua‘u kani (Wedge-tail Shearwater), that call the sanctuary island home. While on the island, join us for the short hike to the Queen’s Bath. The island's natural tide pool, with it's truly spectacular views, is an experience that words can not describe! It truly is a hidden gem of Oahu! Back on the beach, join us for some refreshments as we relax and take in the scenic view.

I was raised in an ocean culture family and am an avid surfer, paddler, sailor and fishermen. I've spent time as an ocean lifeguard in Hawaii and California. I hope to share my passions and the culture of Hawai'i that have had such a strong impact on my life. Tours are run with my team from my business: Kailua Ocean Adventures. We are a small Hawaiian Sailing Canoe and Outrigger Canoe company; born and bred in our hometown of Kailua. We strive to show the cultural and historical side of Hawaiian Canoes, while exploring the waters of our backyard in a safe environment for groups of all levels, keiki to kapuna. My team consists of professional waterman with backgrounds in ocean safety, firefighting and EMS.
