An ʻŌiwi TV film crew joined a NOAA research vessel in September 2012 to document Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. Very few people are allowed access to this protected marine sanctuary and witness first-hand the abundance of wildlife and cultural sites throughout the island chain. The video, pictures, and stories sent back by the ʻŌiwi TV crew is aimed to give everyone a chance to see and learn about this amazing place.

Through Digital Channel 326, ʻŌiwi TV reaches over 220,000 households across the entire State via Oceanic Time Warner Cable’s network.
