Hui Wa'a Kaukahi



None of the sites presented below, commercial or otherwise, have solicited a listing with HuiWaa.Org - we are merely offering their links as a convenience, and do not assume any responsibility for them. Inclusion here is not to be construed as an endorsement of any company, or its preference over any other.

This list is by no means complete - most of this information is gleaned from search engines, and we all know how that goes. If you have a good experience with an unlisted operator or outlet, find a useful resource site, or launch your own personal kayaking page, please email the link to me. Also please let me know ASAP if you find a broken link, 'cause these sites constantly move or close.

Catch-22 applies to commercial sites - they can't ask to be included, they have to be referred, preferably by a member. (They can, however, contact me to update an existing listing). I reserve the right to be totally arbitrary with my choice of listings.

Kayak Fishing

There are so many fishing sites out there now (see the remarks on our own Fishing Page) that I have only included Pacific and tropical sites, and occasionally some others of particular general interest. At the moment, I'm trying to avoid commercial and retail-only websites.

General-interest Sites

(These sites may have absolutely nothing to do with kayaking, Hawaii, or even the ocean - I just found them interesting, and in my capacity as Sitemaster, I merely offer them as a pleasant diversion)
