Aloha mai kākou,

After two years of Covid-19 we are finally back on the water.  Our 2022 paddler orientation is Saturday, May 14, 2022!  If you have keiki’s between the ages of 8-18 who love the water and want to learn more about the Hawaiian culture, then you owe it them and yourself to come check us out.

The first 5 ʻOhana to sign-up for our orientation on Saturday May 14, 2022, will get a free club t-shirt for their keiki!  That’s a $ 20.00 value and is our makana from us to you just for checking us out, ya!  But you have to email us right away and say “I want Da Kine T-shirt offer”!   Offer good while supplies last and only applies to potential new members.

Sign-Up now by emailing us at:

Why Nā Koa Kai Canoe Club?

  • We have extensive cultural resources in the state of Hawaiʻi which allows us to provide a very rich and culturally deep experience for our youth.
  • We are the only Mainland-based cultural immersion program for youth based around the Hawaiian canoe.
  • Our coaches are Safe Sport Certified which is a certification required by the U.S. Junior Olympic Committee to promote youth safety in coaching environments.
  • Our coaches are life-scan certified which include FBI and DOJ background checks.
  • We are charter school approved for both physical and academic education
  • We are the only Hawaiian cultural immersion program on the U.S. Mainland whose program
