You'll meet with a cultural guide in the Kualoa area, one of Hawaii's most stunning bays. You'll head to our launch point, one of Hawaii's historical voyaging ahus (shrines), to learn about the history of voyaging in the islands. Then, you'll get familiar with our kayaks and head out on the water. We'll be exploring the beautiful waters of east Oahu, talking story and even stopping to snorkel in these protected waters. We will often see green sea turtles and a variety of fish in relatively shallow, calm waters. You'll paddle home with a sense of the history of voyaging, the cultural significance of the area, a new understanding of traditional Hawaiian practices, and a look above and below the water. *A minimum of 2 people are required to operate this experience. If 2 people are not booked 24 hours prior to scheduled departure the tour will be cancelled and guest will be issued a full refund.*
