Kihei Canoe Club information
This paddle club invites visitors to share in the mana (spiritual essence) by joining members in paddling their outrigger canoes on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from about 7:30am to 9am. No reservations are necessary; just show up at the wharf at 7:00am. It’s first-come first-served, and spots fill quickly. The donation helps offset the cost of maintaining the canoes.
