About Hawaiian Ocean Edventures
Hawaiian Ocean Edventures was established in October 2015 in Hilo, Hawaiʻi. HOE is owned and operated by Kalani Kahalioumi. Kalani builds the double-hulled sailing canoes using traditional methods and local hardwoods.
Inspired by Eddie Aikau, Papa Mau, Tava Taupu, and Chad Kalepa Baybayan, Kalani is eager to share Hawaiian voyaging and the aloha spirit with visitors. Of his many voyages, most notable to Kalani were those to the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands of Mokumānāna, Nihoa, Kaʻula, Niʻihau, and a round-trip voyage to Aotearoa (New Zealand).
H.O.E. is proud to be affiliated with the Keaukaha Community Association and Keaukaha Youth Development.
