The Moloka’i Hoe 41-mile outrigger canoe race on October 7, 2007 brings plenty of local color to Honolulu. It starts at Hale O Lono Harbor on Molokai and ends on Duke Kahanamoku Beach in Waikiki, Oahu.
This cultural tradition is supported by the Oahu Hawaii Canoe Racing Association and others who want to continue and enrich Polynesian customs.
