LEARNING THE ROPES OF POLYNESIAN VOYAGING IN THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS
Hokulea, Hawaii’s traditional Polynesian voyaging canoe, has set sail on a three year worldwide expedition covering 47,000 nautical miles, 85 ports, and 26 countries. Crew members, continuing their ancestor’s voyaging traditions, will only use the stars, waves, wind, and birds for assistance to map their way on this incredible journey. Enroute, Hokulea will spread the contemporary message Malama Honua or caring for our island earth, which has historically been part of Polynesian and Hawaiian culture. For more information on the Hokulea or to track its voyage, visit Hokulea.com.
Visitors to the Aloha State can find their own inspiration, channeling the wayfinding spirit and learning the ropes of the trade at attractions and activities across the islands.
Visitors looking for a first-hand experience can travel the open ocean in a traditional sailing canoe.
