The Polynesian Voyaging Society is hosting a three day exhibition and open house for Hokule’a at the Hawaii Convention Center. The exhibition started on Sunday June 18 and runs through today, June 20 finishing at 5:00 p.m.
The highlight of the exhibition is seeing the Hokule’a up close and getting a chance to climb aboard the fabled vessel for a few minutes. This is being done online as well as at the convention center on the second floor. Media reports have stated that the online reservations are filled. As luck would have it, I was able to reserve a space in person and got to board Hokule’a for a short time after waiting in line for about 45 minutes yesterday.

The only paid events are the lectures being presented by a number of people in the sailing, Hawaiian and intellectual community.
