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 about 70 miles of paddling this race will span a length of 2 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 52 mile run from DT Fleming, Maui to Lanai. 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 DT Fleming to Kaena Point, Lana’i.
The second leg 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!
