Aloha kākou from the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, this is Shawn Kanaʻiaupuni signing in from Stuart, Florida. We just came in from the Everglades through the inner waterways, actually through a canal system. So it’s a bit of a first for us and a new experience where we went through five locks. I think we’re ready for the Panama Canal. We went through brides and overpasses, we had freeways going over us. We went through Lake Okeechobee and learned a lot about it in Stuart. Since arriving here, we’ve had wonderful community experiences, lots of families from Hawaii who have been so excited to see us, welcoming us, and inviting us to their homes. There have been tons of kids on board almost everyday we’ve been here. We are here for one more day, and will leave Sunday morning. So join us in Titusville, Florida on April 5 at 3pm. Can’t wait to see you there, and keep following us at Hokulea.com.
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.
