 Huaka'i Nā Mokulua 

3 Hour Private Sailing Canoe Tour to Na Mokulua (Twin Islands)

Take an adventure on a 3 hour guided tour in a Hawaiian Sailing Canoe! Sail Kailua with local watermen on the wa’a (canoe) while learning about the history and cultural significance of it to Hawaiian and Polynesian Cultures. Join us for Hawaii’s most traditional ocean experience unlike any other in the world!

During the tour, you will be given the opportunity to explore the ecosystem as we snorkel through the glistening, clear coral reefs of Kailua with honu and other native species of fishes. Enjoy the views of the Ko’olau range surrounding us as our watermen tell the mo’olelo (stories) of various Ahupua’a (land divisions) that make up Kailua and the Ka Iwi coastline. Watch as the indigenous seabirds such as ‘Iwa (Great Frigate) and ‘Ua‘u kani (Wedge-tail Shearwter) visit us flying close by.

On Mokulua Nui, hike to the backside of the island with us as we go for a swim in the Queen’s Bath for a truly spectacular view that words can not describe! Back on the beach, join us for some of the local treats as we relax and take in the serenity of the isolated beach.

Following the tour, join us for some ono grindz (delicious food) from our long time local establishment- Buzz’s Steakhouse. Located right across the road from Kailua beach, Buzz’s is the hidden gem of the east side serving up locals for 55 years. Work up your appetite on our 11am adventure for some beach burgers or cap off your 3pm sunset tour in style with pau hana drinks and a steak dinner.
