Who We Are

We're a community-oriented Hawaiian canoe paddling club located at the Anahola river on the East Side of Kaua'i. Our goal is to strengthen our Anahola community by providing the opportunity to be part of a close-knit crew. Most practice days are conducted on the Anahola river, but we take the canoes into Anahola bay when the conditions are right. Both offer the chance to be an important part of a team and to grow in skill, strength, confidence, and endurance.

More About Us
If everybody pitches in, the work is quickly done.

E lauhoe mai na wa'a; i ke ka, i ka hoe; i ka hoe, i ke ka; pae aku i ka 'aina

Everybody paddle the canoes together; bail and paddle, paddle and bail, and the shore will be reached.

Hele Mai

Come join us! The only thing you'll need in order to participate is the courage to show up! Come see if you like what we have to offer. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
