Hokulea Arrives Home

(KHNL) - After a five-month journey to Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Japan, the Hokule'a finally returns home. This was Hokule'a's first voyage to all three island nations and first voyage into the Western Pacific.

Shipped safely home on a container ship, the Hokule'a has come full circle. She is greeted by the crewmembers who called her home for nearly half a year, and crowds eager to see this voyaging canoe.

The Hokule'a travelled a good 9,570 statute miles since her departure on January 13. Her voyage length was 175 days before arriving at her final port on June 9.
