Legendary Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hokulea will be stopping in MDI

Jul 22, 2016

Somes Sound will be an exciting stopover this weekend for a sailing vessel on an unprecedented voyage.

The legendary Hawaiian voyaging canoe Hokulea will be stopping in Mount Desert Island where crew will honor and engage in cultural exchanges with Native Americans and share about Polynesian wayfinding and sustainability efforts with the Mount Desert Community.

According to a press release, Hokulea is sailing the earth’s oceans to visit and learn from those who are working to solve some of the greatest challenges facing the world today. The sail is part of an historic worldwide voyage covering more than 60,000 nautical miles, 100 ports, and 27 nations. The ship voyages without the use of modern instruments; using stars, winds, and waves to navigate from destination to destination.
