Okeanos Sustainable Sea Transport Ltd. is an extended innovative venture of the Okeanos Foundation for the Sea, located in Majuro, Republic of Marshall Islands.

Our magnificent Walap (Vaka Motu) is environmentally friendly, fused with known best practices on Pacific Islands‘ traditional knowledge and modern designs and running purely on green energies (wind, solar and coconut oil).

Our vision for the future is to constantly grow the fleet of canoes and have one canoe for each atoll to service the Outer Islands to continuously improve the livelihood of all communities.

In using traditional canoes as sustainable sea transportation, our mission is to:
  • Provide regular transportation for food, medical and school supplies to the Outer Islands
  • Provide inter-island transportation to assist the Outer Islands‘ economy
  • Assist sustainable development in the communities
  • Keep practicing and promoting our own traditional culture and knowledge
  • Advocate for our precious environment
