When restored & launched, the Kanaloa will offer a variety of activities to inspire ocean connection, including sailing adventures, community sailing experiences, and cleanups/citizen science. 

Sailing Adventures

  • Whale watching/wildlife

  • Santa Cruz Harbor sails

  • Community music and dining events

One of Kanaloa's hallmarks is it's berthing capacity. It can sleep up to 12 passengers, making live-aboard adventures and multi- week passages in comfort possible. 

​Once launched, the Kanaloa can carry groups to some of the most beautiful geographies, for guests to experience the magic and wonder of longer ocean voyages!

Ocean passages with a citizen science focus: 

On longer passages, we plan to collect water samples to measure ocean chemistry and microplastics, to help monitor ocean pollution levels. 


These experiences will bring first-hand awareness of the pollution challenges our ocean faces.
