It’s been two years since Hōkūle‘a left the islands and has traveled more about 30,000 miles. We checked in with crew member Nā‘ālehu Anthony… as part of our ongoing coverage…Hōkūle‘a: Voyage  of Aloha.

The canoe will depart the nation’s capital later this week…with plans to reach New York City in June for World Oceans Day on June 8.
