Hikianalia Update | July 3, 2015

The Polynesian voyaging canoe Hikianalia is on a journey to the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Crewmembers will be sending frequent updates so that educators and students can track her progress in conjunction with the Worldwide Voyage Tracking Map


We departed Nihoa late Friday night after conducting science experiments with NOAA and the Nature Conservancy including ʻopihi counting and fish surveys.

Last night we encountered the vessel Makani ʻOlu on the open sea, and they drove up to us so we could exchange oli and mele. 

Please help keep us sailing for future generations. All contributions make a difference for our voyage. Mahalo nui loa!
