Hōkūleʻa Update - Chesapeake City to Annapolis

See an update from the Hōkūleʻa Worldwide Voyage as the waʻa makes her way from Chesapeake City to Annapolis, where it continues to connect with visitors, even kamaʻāina who are away from home. The voyaging canoe is traveling back down the East Coast of the United States as she makes her way back to Hawaiʻi, returning in June 2017. For more updates, visit

Hōkūleʻa is on display at the Mariner's Museum in Virgina while it completes vital maintenance work.

The waʻa was lifted out of the water earlier this month for the dry dock before continuing her historic journey next month.
