11 Years Experience Providing & Supporting

Pacific-Designed Sustainable Sea Transportation


Building a Pan-Pacific Vaka Network

Our Pacific-designed sailing canoes, ‘vakas,’ use only green sources of energy – wind, sun and coconut biofuel – and operate in 10 Pacific countries.

Okeanos-built vakas have collectively sailed more than 400,000 nautical miles of open ocean.

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.
