The Tongan Seafaring Center will be located on the beautiful island of Eueiki also know as Treasure Island Resort in the Vava’u group in Tonga.

The Center has recently aquired the special logs from Fiji required for restoration and workers are in the process of restoring the MILLENIUM KALIA . It is anticipated that the Millenium Kalia will be ready for the King’s Coronation in 2008 as well as the Pacific Island Festival being held in Samoa in 2008.

We believe that Polynesian Seafaring is more than a historical artifact. Sailors from other cultures have much to learn about the science of sailing and navigation from techniques developed in Polynesia. Our goal is to make the Polynesian Seafaring tradition accessible to sailors from all nations.

We are accepting contributions of your time and talent. For further information, please contact:
