Kamali'i O Ke Kai

Kamali'i O Ke Kai meaning "Children of the Sea", has found its success by several island spirited individuals whom have life lined their passion for the "aloha spirit" through the expression of paddling.
Kamali'i O Ke Kai offers a variety of levels of paddling, from beginners to the most experienced, from same sex teams to co-ed, and from young to the young at heart. Whether a season or a life of paddling - you can discover that this appeases the island spirit that lives state side that are not so fortunate to live in the islands.
Kamali'i O Ke Kai is 1 of 20 Northern California Canoe Clubs that competes at diverse Lakes and Oceanside surroundings. Our mission is to spread the "Aloha Spirit" through outrigger canoe paddling and encourage the quality of many cultures through family oriented gatherings at our competitions.  Kamali'i O Ke Kai's home is at Lexington Reservoir in Los Gatos, CA. We are plenty strong and we will make room for plenty more. If you are interested in joining our Ohana, or want more information about the Club, please contact us.
