EXTENDING OUR 

OCEAN CONNECTION

THROUGH ADVENTURES AT SEA

The Kanaloa, a 55-foot catamaran sailboat, washed ashore in Santa Cruz, California.
Through the inspiration and personal vision of sailor and boat-builder Deyess Payne, it is being restored to full and useable condition.
 
The vision: Once restored and launched, the Kanaloa will provide passengers the opportunity to experience the wonder and magic of the ocean. It's size, stability, and capacity to sleep 12 people make a variety of sea-faring activities possible, including: wildlife sails in the Monterey Bay, community music and dining events, ocean clean-ups and citizen science, surf and dive adventures, expeditions to local California island spots, and longer sea voyages to Hawaii, Mexico, and Alaska. 
Learn more about the unique journey of this boat and the inspiring work being invested to bring it to life!
