Non-instrument navigation on the open ocean is a treasured skill
that few possess. In 1973, there was only one known deep-sea
navigator. Today, there are nine with more in training. The
Polynesian Voyaging Society seeks to restore this ancient
tradition so that present and future generations will continue
gain knowledge through lessons learned out on the sea, while
preserving the ancient voyaging traditions.
Discover the ancient voyaging
traditions of wayfinding as well as modern wayfinding
techniques. Study the Hawaii Star Compass, which has been used
to guide Hokule`a on her voyages for the last 26 years.
