If you’re looking for a true cultural outing and are interested in learning the rich history of Kā‘anapali, there is no better way to start your day than with a guided outrigger canoe paddle.
This is a fantastic, often overlooked activity that is great for all ages and skill levels. Each time I get the pleasure of going out in the wa’a (canoe), the local guides never cease to amaze me with their knowledge, their passion, and their willingness to share the history of the land that both locals and visitors consider paradise.
Guided paddles are offered every morning from North Kā‘anapali Beach in front of The Westin Kā‘anapali Ocean Resort Villas.
Space is limited and fills fast, so let us know if you want to make a reservation.

"Outrigger Canoe, whales and more whales!"
Outrigger ride right off the beach. We are seniors but had no trouble with the paddling. Two young island guides were friendly and interesting but the highlight was WHALES! Many right around us, one went right underneath our canoe! A sea turtle also popped up to say farewell as we left.

This is one of our favorite activities on the island. The guys that run the outrigger canoeing are so knowledgable and very friendly. Last time out we had spinner dolphins all around us. Always see a turtle or two. Just a great activity
