Aloha e na keiki,

Our Hanohano Keiki team provides  the opportunity for kids to experience paddling and racing in our 6 man outrigger canoes.  Our “Hanohano Ohana” (family) welcomes all levels of experience! (Swimming ability required.)

This is a great opportunity for all youth/keiki ages 5-19 years to experience our “Aloha Spirit”,  learn about Hawaiian and Californian outrigger canoe culture as well as the art of canoe paddling and teamwork.  We’re looking forward to meeting you, your families and friends!

Parent participation is necessary to move boats and sometimes paddle.
