2015 Worldwide Voyage Recap

2015 Worldwide Voyage Recap

Forty years after launching from the sacred shores of Kualoa, Hawaiʻi on March 8, 1975, our Polynesian voyaging canoe Hōkūleʻa continues to make history.

In the second year of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, we left our home waters of the Pacific and ventured into the Tasman Sea and Indian Ocean. In communities across Aotearoa (New Zealand), Australia, Indonesia, Mauritius, and South Africa, our crews on board Hōkūleʻa and her escort vessel Gershon II found strong commonality with the people and stories we met.

Now at the end of 2015, Hōkūleʻa arrived on the eastern shore of Africa, marking the return of the youngest culture on earth to the origin of humanity. With Cape Town, South Africa, as the halfway point of the Mālama Honua Worldwide Voyage, every mile we sail from now on is a mile closer to home.
