Welcome to the home of the Maui Nui Canoe Race.

The Maui Nui Canoe Race is an ambitious undertaking that will challenge the skill and endurance of all participants.  With over 100 miles of paddling this race will span a length of 3 days.  At an affordable price this is not only a great value but will one day garner interest from ocean enthusiasts around the globe.

The first leg of the race is a 42 mile run from Maliko Bay, Maui to Moloka’i.  One of windiest channels in the Hawaiian Islands, the Pailolo Channel takes the trades that funnel between Maui and  Moloka‘i and transforms them into perfectly spaced bumps that offer rides virtually all the way from the start at Maliko Bay to Molokai.

The second leg of the race is a 38 mile run from Moloka’i to Hulopoe Bay, Lana’i.  The Kailohi Channel is known as one of the least treacherous channels between islands in Hawaii. However,  strong winds and choppy ocean conditions will offer a challenge at the beginning of the course.  Depending on the strength of the trade winds the course will either continue to be challenging or open up to a calm ocean on the backside of Lana’i, at Ka’ena Point and all the way to the finish at Manele Bay.

The third and final leg of the race is a 20 mile run from Hulopoe Bay, Lana’i to Hanakaoʻo Beach Park, Maui.  This leg of the race starts in the Kealaikahiki Channel and ends in the ‘Au’Au Channel.  The ‘Au’Au Channel is one of the most protected areas of ocean in the Hawaiian Islands.  Not only does it lie between Lana’i and Maui, it is also protected by Moloka’i to the north & Kaho’olawe to the south.

E hele mai! Come and join us!
