Description
Learn about the Hawaiian history, culture, and see the Hawaiian green sea turtles while on the Cultural Outrigger Canoe and Turtle Tour in Maui, Hawaii. This is a learning experience designed for the whole family. As the canoe gently glides through the water, learn about the tribal chefs that paddled these same water. Watch as the sea turtles guide right beside the canoe or get into the water and enjoy swimming along next to them.

Maui is full of history and culture. The guides will tell stories about the Hawaiians past who shared these same waters. Learn about how Hawaii's government was illegally overthrown. The guides will teach a Hawaiian chant to use while paddling the canoe. Learn about celestial navigation that the Polynesian Voyagers used to sail these waters.

Take notice of the beautiful views of West Maui Mountains, Haleakala, and more. The next stop is Turtlepoint located off of Wailea Point. The Hawaiian Sea Turtles and the Hawksbill Turtles are curious creatures, and they will come up to the canoe. Get into the water and swim along with them for an unforgettable experience.

Maui is a beautiful place and what better way to see its beauty than from the water. Learn about how Hawaii became to be so enriched in history and culture. Make sure to bring a camera to get pictures of the friendly sea turtles and all the beauty that surrounds the island.
We invite you to relive a part of Hawaiian History and walk in the footsteps of the Ali'i (Chief, Royalty) as you experience a traditional Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Tour! Learn about the illegal occupation of Hawai'i and the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy in 1893. Participate in traditional Hawaiian Chants (oli) as you paddle our canoe (hoe wa'a) along the south coast of Maui...breathtaking views of Haleakala, West Maui Moutains, Lana'i, Kaho'olawe/Kanaloa, and Molokini! Paddle our canoe to Turtletown off Wailea Point and see the honu and honu'ea (Hawaiian Green Sea & Hawksbill Turtles) that frequent this beautiful area! Swim with the turtles if you'd like or watch as they swim alongside the canoe!

Learn about the Polynesian Voyagers as they sailed the Polynesian Triangle (New Zealand to Rapa Nui to Hawaii) using Celestial navigation/wayfinding.

In honoring the wisdom and knowledge passed on by generations from our ancestors, we are inspired to share the wisdom, values and traditions that sustained the Hawaiian culture in the past...and into the future...!
