Explorer, navigator, cultural revivalist, educator, and storyteller: Nainoa Thompson has led the rediscovery and revival of the ancient Polynesian art of navigation.

Through his voyaging, teaching, and engagement, he has opened a global, multi-generational dialogue on the importance of sustaining ocean resources and maritime heritage.

Nainoa has dedicated his life to exploring the ocean, maintaining the health of the planet, and ensuring that the ancient marine heritage and culture of Polynesians remain vibrant into the future.

SeaKeepers will be presenting the NextGen Award to Lehua Kamalu, captain, navigator, and Voyaging Director at the Polynesian Voyaging Society. We will also feature programming from our educational outreach and 2022 expeditions aboard vessels from the DISCOVERY Yacht Program.
