Have you ever checked out the Kihei Canoe Club?

Kihei Canoe Club in Maui, Hawaii  

Kihei Canoe Club was established in 1973 by Moki Kalanikau, Ben Abierra, and George Ferreiera and is one of the 4 oldest canoe clubs on Maui. Our first coach was Dutchy Kino who led us to county titles in 1976, 1978 and 1979. Dutchy’s innovations and contributions to outrigger canoe paddling made him legendary in the sport.

Expanding from those early days, we now have over 20 canoes, over 300 members and several coaches. We continue to be one of the most innovative clubs in Hawaii. We have strong programs for Na Opio (youth), racers and recreational paddlers – all steeped in Hawaiian tradition and culture. We offer many educational opportunities including – stroke technique in our training tank and on the water, classes for ho`okele (steersman) and strokers, paddle making, Hawaiian navigation techniques and much more.
