Our vaka crews are travelling throughout Pacific Ocean. Seven vaka are sailing as one, channelling the wisdom of their ancestors and voyaging forward into the future, bringing together both ancient and modern wisdom to heal the injured Pacific Ocean. The vaka, the equipment and the training of the crew was funded by Okeanos – Foundation for the Sea.
If you are interested in sponsoring a Vaka, please contact the Foundation. Funds should be sent to the Oceanic Nature Film Production, Ltd. with distinct identification (i.e.: “For Pacific Voyagers“ or “For Vaka Motu“ or the name of the specific voyaging society the funds should go to)
