If you're planning to be in Hawai'i this month, something special is happening, and you're not going to want to miss it. Hawai'i will welcome home the Polynesian voyaging canoe Hokulea and completion of its around-the-world voyage, Malama Honua.
Between June 17-20, Hawaii residents and visitors will be able to share the spirit of aloha with the Polynesian Voyaging Society, Master Navigator Nainoa Thompson and Hokulea’s crew.
