The Polynesian Voyaging Society is holding open houses for Hokulea and Hikianalia before their worldwide voyage.
The public is invited to visit both canoes at the Marine Education Training Center at 10 Sand Island Pkwy. from 4-7 p.m. on May 9, 12, 13 or 15.
Visitors will not be allowed to board the canoes as crews are prepping them for the voyage, but tours will be given dockside and crew members will be present to share information and stories.
The open houses are free and open to the public.
Once they depart for Tahiti later this month, the canoes will not be back to Hawaii in more than three years.
