Push beyond the protected cove and explore the coastline of Lanikuhonua, a sacred spot that served as a retreat for ancient Hawaiian chiefs and royalty. Part of the Four Seasons Resort Oʻahu curator program, this serene early morning experience blends exercise, education and meditation, thanks to its leader Anu, a kahuna (shaman), and his band of merry watermen. "Too often modern life drowns out engagement with nature," he explains. "We give too much time to our gizmos and forget the ocean can bring health and peace of mind." Suitable for all levels of paddlers.
