Seems like just yesterday when the fleet of Voyaging Canoes gathered in Maui.


Tomorrow is the beginning of the Mahalo celebration for the Hawaiian Canoe Hokulea and her crew.   For three years the canoe has been at sea voyaging and now she has returned.  What a special day indeed.

Standing next to me is relief Capt Aunofo Havea from Tonga, whom I have known since 2006.  Not only is Aunofo a great Captain but she has more knowledge of whale behavior than anyone I have ever met.   This image is several years old already and now Aunofo is back in Tonga and has a new whale watch boat. I could not be happier and look forward to chartering her boat every season.
