Truly a great experience! This is a morning excursion, and it works by providing a donation to this non-profit organization, which focuses on preservation of Hawaiian culture thru preservation of the fishpond ("revitalizing a wall, revitalizing a culture"). Our family of four adults (not teens, but certainly appropriate) met our guide on the beach by the fishpond at 8 am, and he started by providing background on traditional Hawaiian appreciation of the land and sustainability. He was great! We then launched the canoe (yes, the four of us with our guide), got in, and started paddling. We participated in some Hwaiian chants as we paddled, caught a few waves, and helped to seed the fishpond with specific types of seaweed that are attractive to certain fish. We were back on the beach by 9:30. We got a workout (although our guide did a lot of the work), learned a lot, and helped a good cause. Highly recommend!
