Hōkūleʻa will start the new year on her Mahalo, Hawaiʻi tour with two January engagements at Ko Olina Resort. Weather permitting, the legendary voyaging canoe will be docked at Ko Olina Marina, Jan. 3-10, and return for a second visit Jan. 21-Feb. 3. During the two engagements, the Polynesian Voyaging Society and Ko Olina will be welcoming the general public and school groups to the marina to tour the canoe, meet crew members and participate in events highlighting the recent Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage and the 42 year history and legacy of Hōkūleʻa.

“We want to give all of Hawaiʻi’s children and communities an opportunity to step on the deck of Hōkūleʻa and be a part of our voyages,” said Nainoa Thompson, president of Polynesian Voyaging Society. “This stop at Ko Olina will allow thousands of students, residents and visitors to visit the canoe and crew, learn about voyaging, and bring light to the community of Ko Olina and West Oʻahu to elevate the work being done to perpetuate culture, environment and education through multiple pathways,” he added.
