Empower Pacific Island people to implement traditionally based sustainable sea transportation to ensure independence, cultural revival and ocean stewardship.
Supporting Pacific Islands’ traditional knowledge as solution, adaptation and mitigation to climate change.
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.
