Na Kama Kai
Na Kama Kai is an organization that conducts monthly ocean clinics around the island which are "designed to instill an awareness of the ocean and provide the keiki [kids] with safety tools necessary for ocean activities. Through the expertise of professional water men and women the keiki are given one-on-one ocean instruction in a hands on environment." Na Kama Kai means "Children of the Sea" in Hawaiian. Among the activities that the kids participate in are paddle boarding, canoeing, and marine life classes. Here, one of the double canoes launches, full of smiling faces.
