Our Approach


Kikaha o Ke Kai is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit Organization dedicated to maintaining and perpetuating Hawaiian culture through the paddling of Outrigger Canoes. Formed in 1996, we paddle 6-person canoes on Tacoma's Foss Waterway and around the Pacific Northwest and beyond!

We invite all paddlers from age 5 to 75 to join us! Our season runs from March through September, though you'll find the most dedicated paddlers continuing through the cold winter months.
