Disaster Relief-Kauai Canoe Clubs

Severe flooding has caused an enormous amount of damage to some of our canoe clubs on Kauai. Hanalei Canoe Club and NaMolokama Canoe Club were hit the hardest. They have lost most of their canoes and equipment. We don't even know the full extent of the damage yet, but we'd like to get started helping them recover.

If you've been there or dream of paddling Hanalei Bay, it is a magical experience. The only way to have that experience is for Namolokama or Hanalei Outrigger to give you a seat in one of their six-man canoes, or for a local paddler to take one of the one-man canoes off one of these racks and take you out. The local paddlers are very generous with the magic of this Bay. The new OC6 costs $20K, a one man is $5K. If you can help even a little, please do.

First Polynesian Heritage Night at the Sharks Tank

The NCOCA Leadership was touched by how many of our Ohana made the drive on a work night to support the very 1st Polynesian Heritage Night at the Sharks tank. All around smiles and Aloha spirit, we are so very proud of NCOCA!
