The first sailing canoes emerged in ancient Polynesia over 1,000 years ago. The canoes were built from island materials and the sails were made from plaited leaves. The manned paddled sailing canoes explored the vast Pacific Ocean. The tradition of canoe sailing is very much alive in the Hawaiian Islands, especially here at Kukuiʻula. A day spent traversing Kauaʻi’s South Shore waves on Kailele, our stunning sailing canoe is truly a day well spent.
