Established in 1996 and paddling out of Tacoma, Washington, Kikaha O Ke Kai Outrigger Canoe Club is a 501(c)3 Non-Profit organization dedicated to the sport of Hawaiian outrigger canoe paddling. "E Komo Mai" and welcome to our paddling 'Ohana (family)!

Our season runs from April through September and we feature short and long distance races for both novice and skilled paddlers. We have a full Coaching Staff for Keikis (children), Juniors, Women, and Men. Those new to the sport will learn paddling technique, race rules, the cultural aspects to Hawaiian canoe paddling and enjoy an active lifestyle. And for those wanting a greater sporting challenge and to improve their fitness, this is a low impact sport with tough competition.

Kikaha is a wonderful experience for the entire family and/or for a group of friends! Contact us today!
