Hokulea, the traditional double-hulled voyaging canoe that helped revive Hawaiian seafaring culture, will be docking tonight at the Kaunakakai wharf.
Unless the weather creates navigation problems, the boat will be in Kaunakakai this evening. From Tuesday through Saturday, the public is invited to receive tours of the boat built in 1975.
Over the past 38 years, Hokulea has traveled 135,000 nautical miles, promoting its message of aloha ‘aina and sustainability around the word.
Hokulea now plans to embark on its longest journey ever. The trip will take three years and is planned to cover 46,000 miles and 21 countries. It is scheduled to make 21 stops during its voyage.
In preparation for this worldwide tour, Hokulea will be visiting five Hawaiian islands.
