Scientific Expeditions

Alongside ocean conservation, assisting scientific expeditions are part of Okeanos’ missions. Either to promote, assess or explore, our Vaka Motu is the ideal tool.
This traditional Polynesian canoe has been designed especially for inter-islands journeys and is entirely environmentally sustainable. It runs on wind, solar panels and coconut oil-powered engine.

Scientific-, assessment-, rescue- and awareness-missions or campaigns which care to use an ecological transportation are more than welcome onboard.

Let us know what your itinerary would be and we will advise you on the time required and the feasibility of such journey. Onboard you will find accommodation and food on a daily basis, almost like a floating lab.
