Halfway around the world, Hōkūle‘a crew members are making preparations to depart Cape Town, South Africa. The voyaging canoe is currently in dry dock, where repairs are being made before it sets off on its next leg. We caught up with Hokulea captain Kālepa Baybayan as part of our ongoing series Hōkūle‘a Voyage of Aloha.

The next destination for Hōkūle‘a is Brazil. The new crew plans to depart South Africa in two weeks.
