Hōkūle’a Arrival Ceremony to Dana Point Harbor
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 4, 2023
Join Dana Point OC Sheriff and Ocean Institute as they welcome the Hōkūleʻa with a water salute, then watch it be escorted by canoe clubs to the Ocean Institute’s dock. The public is invited inside the Ocean Institute for a welcome ceremony in the courtyard with speeches, cultural tributes, and ceremonial dances. You can reserve a seat in the courtyard online.
The Hōkūleʻa is a symbol of the Hawaiian cultural renaissance and a vessel that pays homage to the ancient Polynesian navigators who used the stars, winds, and natural signs to navigate the vast expanse of the Pacific Ocean.
The Moananuiākea Voyage was an expedition that began in 2013 and aimed to sail around the world using traditional navigation methods. The voyage sought to promote environmental sustainability and raise awareness about the importance of protecting the world’s oceans.
