Authentic Hawaiian Sailing

Sail Away with Hawaiian Ocean Edventures

Join us aboard our double-hulled Hawaiian sailing canoe Kiakahi, and experience the natural wonders of the coasts of Keaukaha and Hilo Palikū. Hawaiian Ocean Edventures "HOE" (Hawaiian verb meaning "to paddle"), the only Hawaiian Sailing Canoe service offered in Eastern Hawai’i, provides a fun and exciting way to experience Hawaiian culture and natural history.

Fashioned after the Voyaging canoe, Hōkūalakaʻi, our Sailing Canoes offer the unique experience of seafaring in the tradition of our Polynesian ancestors. With skilled, passionate local guides, you will learn about the history of Polynesian wayfinding while exploring Hawaii’s beautiful coastline and marine life.
