Home / News / [JUN 17] Hōkūleʻa returns to Hawaiʻi

On June 17, the 62-foot-long double-hulled traditional voyaging canoe Hōkūleʻwill sail into Magic Island in Honolulu, completing her global circumnavigation – the first-ever round-the-world voyage by a traditional Polynesian vessel.

The trip began in May 2014 when she sailed westward from Hilo on Hawaii’s Big Island, and went on to navigate across five oceans, traversing more than 40,000 nautical miles to visit 19 countries before returning home.
