- About Us
The 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 instructors 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! After thoroughly exploring the fish pond guard house you’ll enjoy a nice paddle back to He’eia State Park and be welcomed by our Hawaiian BBQ lunch!
