When most people envision Hawaii, they may conjure up ideas of surfing, pineapple, the island of Oahu, and other tourist-brochure inspired images. Turning some of those ideas on their head is this intriguing voyage (sponsored and documented in part by the Honolulu Advertiser) to the sometimes-neglected northwestern Hawaiian Islands on the voyaging canoe Hokule'a. On the website, visitors can learn about the crew of the Hokule'a, view a Flash-enabled map of their progress and route, and learn about their educational mission for the trip. The site also features some nice material on the formation of the oldest Hawaiian islands, including a series of graphics that document the creation and transformation of these land forms. Finally, Honolulu Advertiser staff writer Jan TenBruggencate is providing a daily journal and a question and answer section for the website for the consideration of visitors to the site.
