Admission fee is $30, with proceeds being used to support Pu‘uwai Canoe Club adult and youth programs that help and support Pu‘uwai’s mission of encouraging athletic endeavors based on Hawaiian traditions of aloha, ho‘ihi (respect), and ikaika kakauha (athletic strength).

The entry fee qualifies participants to prizes and random drawings.

Pu‘uwai Outrigger Canoe Club was founded in 1992 at the mouth of the Wailua River. “Pu‘uwai” is Hawaiian for “heart.”

the club strives to teach paddling skills, perpetuate the cultural significance of canoe paddling, and preserve the traditions of the past. The club is committed to enhancing the well-being of its members and the community.
