Provided by Polynesian Voyaging Society

Hawaii’s voyaging canoes Hokulea and Hikianalia have been on the move again, within New Zealand, but not before exploring.

“The crew got to do hiking, fishing, diving and kayaking and now we are on our way to Whangarei,” said Moani Hemuli, a Hokulea crewmember.

In Whangarei, they’re conducting community outreach, canoe tours, teaching navigation and spreading the word of Malama Honua, caring for earth, as well as learning how how others do the same.

The canoes arrive in Auckland Dec. 7.
