Our 45 ft traditional Hawaiian sailing canoe was built by hand right here in Hawai'i and sailed throughout all of the islands. We started from humble beginnings about 18 years ago, and sought to design a business around a lifestyle that suited us best. A typical lifestyle to beautiful Hawai‘i for those of us that have grown up here is one with the ocean. With us, we want to share with our guests a real Hawaiian adventure. Experience what we experience, growing up here. A typical day in the life of a local watermen or woman on Kaua'i, both today and in ancient Hawai'i.

We love what we do and where we live; and we want to share it with you.

The "Kuupaaloa", allows us to share a piece of Hawai‘i's culture with you whether your a visitor or kama'aina. Our goal is to provide culturally rich "eco-tours", fit for the whole family: keiki to kupunamalahini to kama'aina. Through a fun sail we are able to educate and share a unique experience blending our history, culture and values into each tour.

For the past eighteen years, Island Sails Kaua'i, has been committed to providing quality cultural and educational tours here in Hawai'i. Our goal is to share our aloha & canoe with everyone, and through that, create an awesome opportunity for our guests to discover a new connection with Hawai'i.
