Paddling With Kawaikini
Join us for Sunday Cruising. All Year-Round
See Events for all Race Results & a Schedule of upcoming races. All are welcome!
Kawaikini Canoe Club encourages all men & women to
come join us at the
Kawaikini Competitive paddlers meet, starting in February, every
Wednesday, at 5:00 pm for warm-up and in the water around 5:30 pm.
The coach determines the type of practice and skills practiced dependent
on the type of events coming up.
We also meet on Sundays at 8:00. This is a relaxed paddle day for those that are in the competitive program and for those that are not. Also, this day we meet afterwards at Olympic Cafe for Bloody Mary Sunday and breakfast most weeks.

All paddlers are welcome. Members are assigned as much as possible into canoes as cruiser or competitive preference. If you are looking to see if you would like to join us this is the best day for guests as weekdays are reserved for our race practice. We welcome people to come for 2 weeks as a guest before they are encouraged to join Kawaikini Canoe Club.
Off-Island Guests are Welcome on Sundays. Donations are welcome but not required.
