Holokai He'eia Fishpond Adventure



Daily: 9:00 am
Monday - Saturday 
Duration: 4 Hours



The Guided He’eia Fishpond Exploration is just that, an exploration of an ancient Hawaiian pond built for sustainable fish farming. This is truly a one-of-a-kind Hawaiian activity, an authentic cultural experience that’s off the beaten path. Your pre-trip briefing includes the basics of kayaking and ocean safety, and then take to the water to learn the cultural significance of ancient Hawaiian fishponds. Your guides will talk about the importance of their “sustainable” existence to our ancestors , why we need to learn from them and how we can apply the same type of thinking to our current times. You get to play an active role in restoring this once flourishing pond by fishing the predatory fish out with a Hawaiian-style bamboo fishing pole!
