The Koa Kai Canoe Club started in 1979 as a hui of Honolulu Police officers who wanted to paddle together. Simply put, they saw paddling as a way to extend the camaraderie they had in the workplace to a water sport that they and their families could enjoy. Despite the obstacles of their work schedules, their resolve rang true: some way, somehow they were going to paddle, and they were going to paddle together. There was enough support among this group of HPD officers to form two practice sessions: one in the morning and one in the late evening. Thus, armed with a lot of enthusiasm, commitment, and determination, the Honolulu Police Department Canoe Club was born.
