Hokulea is in Mauritius now, and preparing for the Indian Ocean leg of its worldwide voyage with the help of new partner Outrigger Resorts. Bitsy Kelley, vice president of corporate communications at Outrigger Enterprises Group, shared some of the crew’s agenda.
“Outrigger organized a number of activities for the crew, one of which will convene ambassadors from the US, Australia, United Kingdom, and South Africa, as well as government officials from Mauritius to learn more about the worldwide voyage and its mission,” she says.
The event coincides with Outrigger’s Founder’s Day, which celebrates the hotel’s roots in Hawai’i and its global reach. It’s a theme applicable to Hokulea as well, says Kelly.
