Hōkūleʻa Update | May 29, 2016

Aloha, we are in Cape May, New Jersey where we arrived last night. The weather is a little cloudy. Today, we took care of canoe maintenance and preparation for our journey up to New York. It has been an awesome journey so far. We left Chesapeake City yesterday, came up with the Delaware River where we had some headwinds for a while but good currents. We were able to make good time and arrive just before sunrise. It has been an amazing journey so far and wherever weʻve gone, the people have been very kind and open to us. Even when we pulled into Chesapeake City at 11pm, people were shouting “aloha!” Itʻs just amazing this far from Hawaiʻi, someone recognizes Hōkūleʻa. Weather permitting, we will depart in the next couple of days and make our way to New York City. The crew is really appreciative of the experiences we had in Washington DC all the way up to Chesapeake City and now in Cape May. Itʻs really amazing, so please join us on this journey at Hokulea.com. Aloha!

More than Adventure

Beyond a daring expedition, the Worldwide Voyage is quite possibly the most important mission that Hawaiʻi has ever attempted. As people of Oceania, we are leading a campaign that gives voice to our ocean and planet by highlighting innovative solutions practiced by cultures around the planet.

We could not have begun this great journey without your support, nor can we continue to its completion.
