The crew had clear skies to see stars Hokupaʻa and Hōkūleʻa to steer their way. They also saw some bioluminescence, lightening and many Manu o Kū before spotting Kauaʻi. The crew then headed toward Niʻihau to position themselves to find Nihoa.

their natural and cultural environments. For more information about the Polynesian
