11 Years Experience Providing & Supporting

Pacific-Designed Sustainable Sea Transportation


Building a Pan-Pacific Vaka Network

Our Pacific-designed sailing canoes, ‘vakas,’ use green sources of energy – wind and sun – and operate in 11 Pacific countries.

Okeanos-built vakas have collectively sailed more than 500,000 nautical miles of open ocean
serving as passenger- and cargo transport for health-service, education, disaster relief and research.

Working in partnership with Pacific Island governments, Okeanos manages vaka motu operations providing professional training and oversight

while supporting a systematic transition to independent, locally-run, sustainable sea transport infrastructure.
