47,000 NAUTICAL MILES. 85 PORTS. 26 COUNTRIES.
Now two years at sea, delivering a mission of Malama Honua (to care for our earth), Hōkūle‘a, the revered traditional Polynesian double hulled voyaging canoe, has made a historic global journey using ancient methods of oceanic navigation. The Hōkūle‘a will visit 100 ports in 27 nations, across 60,000 nautical miles, demonstrating the importance of making a change for a more sustainable future. This spring and summer, the Hōkūle‘a will make its way to the East Coast of the United States, including a voyage up the Hudson River to Manhattan. We are proud to support the Polynesian Voyaging Society through our non-profit Ama OluKai Foundation. The Hōkūle‘a and its sister canoe, Hikianalia, are vital pieces of living history and embody the spirit of a boundless aloha.
OluKai is honored to partner with the Worldwide Voyage and support the crew in their ambitious endeavor. The Hōkūle‘a represents a large part of OluKai’s company mission – honoring and preserving Hawaiian culture and traditions.
