Outrigger Canoeing Rocks!

Thursday, 7/22, found me and the kids up bright and early for an 8 a.m. outrigger canoe adventure. Outrigger canoeing is the number 1 sport on Maui (and I think in Hawaii overall).

Maui Paddle Sports totally rocks. They know so much history about the islands as well as about outrigger canoe as a sport (and before it was even a sport) that it is just amazing. Not to mention that they are great with the kids. There were 6 of us in our canoe – me, Max, Mara plus 3 guys from Maui Sports. Thank goodness they were paddling!
We saw several sea turtles plus the clearest water. Highly, highly recommended. (Good thing we went in the morning…it rained all afternoon!)
