Our vision is to develop, educate and promote all aspects of waka voyaging within Aotearoa, Ngāti Kahungunu and the Hawke’s Bay community, so that the knowledge is passed on to future generations.
Te Matau a Māui Voyaging Trust was formed in 2013 by a small group of experienced ocean voyaging sailors trained in the practice of traditional navigation and polynesian sailing.
The Trust operates Te Matau a Māui a waka hourua (traditional double-hulled sailing vessel), which is permanently berthed in the Ahuriri Harbour, Napier.
Waka Experience has been developed to offer a unique cultural and sailing experience for organisations and groups including schools, youth, iwi, community, corporate groups and visitors to Hawke's Bay.
