Guests will have the opportunity to participate in Hawaii's most traditional ocean experience, a voyage aboard a Hawaiian Sailing Canoe. The trip will include a guided historical tour of the South Shore of Oahu from the vantage point of the ocean looking back at the land. Our crew will share their local knowledge of the area and the famous stories that gave each of the valleys its name. Guest Voyagers will also have the opportunity to practice basic way finding techniques that have been used by Navigators for centuries throughout the Pacific.
Born and raised in Maunalua Bay, Oahu, Austin Kino has been a crew member aboard Hokule’a since 2006, sailing around the world in the Malama Honua voyage as an apprentice navigator. Drawing on his paddling and voyaging roots he started Holokino Hawaii which offers canoe sailing experiences to customers seeking adventure and an understanding of traditional way finding.
Based out of the Kahala Hotel and Resort just a ten minute drive out of Waikiki, the Holokino Hawaii Sailing Experience will take you outside of the reef and into the waters of Maunalua Bay.
