The Outrigger Canoe Club is located on the Diamond Head side of Waikiki. It's a beautiful facility with amazing views of the Waikiki Beach. They provide dining with indoor and outdoor seating and a bar with a hand made outrigger hanging overhead.

The core of the club of course is their canoeing activities and events. However, it's interesting to note that beach volleyball originated at the Outrigger Canoe Club.

The club was first established in 1908, and has had many notable members. Most significantly to Hawaii was surfer and Olympian Duke Paoa Kahanamoku. He was a member from 1917 until he passed away in 1968. There are about 4000 members worldwide. Membership is by invitation only. The Admissions and Membership Committee is responsible for determining if the candidate shares the values of the club.

I've been to several functions at the Outrigger Canoe Club, and my experience has always been pleasurable. It's a laid back atmosphere of old friends and new ones that come together to enjoy a beautiful place in Hawaii.
