Think you are ready to try your hand at a traditional island survival skill? With our new spear throwing activity you can experience this exciting and challenging sport, Travaasa-style!

Hawaiian spear throwing began as a way to train young warriors for combat and food gathering as the experience teaches the importance of patience, a steady hand, and a trained eye. Today, spear throwing is enjoyed by many Hawaiians for enjoyment and exercise.

During the 45-minute experience, your guide will teach you about the technique of ‘ō‘ō ihe (spear throwing) and the ways of the young warriors. You’ll get a feel for how the spear needs to be held, and practice throwing it accurately to hit a target. Learning techniques like arching your throw to allow it to fall with speed to the target will help you master this ancient art.
