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 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.
