A donation ($ amount determined by Fishpond ) per person is made through PayPal prior to booking. The best $ you will spend on Maui as it all goes to a good cause! A maximum of 5 people can go out on the outrigger canoe with the guide. I highly recommend this activity! Skip the luau and do this!

Want to learn a bit about Hawaiian culture AND paddle an outrigger canoe (no experience necessary)? This activity is for you. We first learned a bit about how ancient Hawaiians corralled and nurtured ocean fish here in what is an original fish farm! Then our guide, Kimokeo Kapahulehua, showed us the work this organization is doing to restore the lava rock walls of this ancient Hawaiian fish pond site. Finally, the three of us paddled out a ways in an outrigger canoe to view the second ring of the fishpond. I can't say enough good things about Kimokeo's expertise about Hawaiian culture AND about his gentle manner and patience with us, two canoeing clutzes. Kimokeo is also a major outrigger canoe expert (next year he and 13 others will paddle a double outrigger from Hawaii to Tahiti -- a mere 2000 miles away - to reenact ancient Polynesian canoeing skills!!). And he has some awesome tattoos of his Hawaiian "totem," the sea turtle. Check it out!
