we got to join the canoe club on a Thursday morning for a 2 hour adventure---it is now a $30 donation to paddle but since the money supports good causes, it was well worth it---all run by volunteers, we paddled a few miles out, got a chance to swim with the turtles and paddle back---great way to start the day

The first people who saw Hawaii came by wind and paddle. As an Hawaiian who now lives on the mainland I paddle every chance I get when I return to the islands. It's a way I can stay connected with my ancestors who came before me. The Kihei Canoe Club respects the past and shares it with Aloha to visitors... More

I saw in the Maui News that the Kihei Canoe Club takes visitors out canoeing in their outriggers on Tuesday and Thursday for a $30 donation to support their cultural activities. We were staying at the Kealia Resort (on Sugar Beach) and easily walked along the beach to the Canoe Club. We arrived around 7:00 AM and signed up. They... More

Check it out-you can go out paddling with the locals from the club. They ask for a $30 donation. After a quick lesson on the beach, out for about 1 1/2 hours. Saw turtles, stingray and had a history lesson. Can't beat it and was a good work out too.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays of every week, you can go to Kihei Canoe Club to experience a piece of Hawaiian culture. Located on S. Kihei Rd and Uwapo - look for the gold and red canoes. The reason I choose this over other canoe adventures is the fact they take a $25 donation to help the youth community and work... More

Weather permitting, Tuesdays and Thursdays are guest days at Kihei Canoe Club. For a $25 tax deductible donation for first time paddlers, you get a single or double outrigger with club members in key positions and other guests. Check in begins at 7 am . The club promotes the Hawaiian culture and the experience starts with a Hawaiian cultural explanation,... More

The cost of this outing is a $25 donation made to the club, much of which is used to support programs for local children with financial needs. It is an... More
