Seas the Day
Today’s attendees want authentic cultural experiences; stakeholders want to build strong teams. Why not both? The Hawaiian Outrigger Experience in Wailea, Maui, teaches participants about the tremendous, pre-GPS journeys of the islands’ Polynesian ancestors. Groups of six will survey the mountainous views of Maui’s southern coast from a timeless perspective, and will likely spot endemic fish, dolphin, sea turtles, even whales in season. During the 30-, 60-, or 90-minute tours, they’ll learn the folklore, chants, ecology, and history of the islands—all while pulling together to ply the Pacific. Rates from $69 per person. www.hawaiianoutriggerexperience.com —Susan Campbell.
