O Ke Kai Series


Outrigger was founded 70 years ago in Hawaii. And so we’re proud to share authentic Hawaiian culture with our Waikiki guests today through partnerships and programming. 

As part of this, we’ve pledged our support to further the mission of the Polynesian Voyaging Society’s (PVS) Worldwide Voyage. The crew stayed at Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort during their travels in the Indian ocean and the resort helped them to store and source food for the next leg of the journey. 

We partnered with Kahala Shirts to create a limited-edition PVS and Outrigger aloha shirt and met them when Hokulea came to New York. 

And we continue this partnership today with our O Ke Kai Series - Celebrating Hawaii's Great Canoes.

The O Ke Kai Series supports the continuing efforts of the friends of Hokule'a and Hawai'iloa to ensure the traditional Hawaiian canoe building and restoration skills are passed on to future generations. 

The event is held quarterly at Outrigger Reef Waikiki Beach Resort. Details on the next one can be found here. We invite you to join us.
