The Northwest Hawaiian islands include ten islands: Nihoa, Necker Island, French Frigate Shoals, Gardner Pinnacles, Maro Reef, Laysan Island, Lisianski Island, Pearl and Hermes Atoll, Midway Atoll and Kure Atoll.
Our plans call for a September-October 2013 activation period / multi-island expedition.
With start point of Kauai potential stops are: French Frigate Shoals, Laysan Island and may be Lisianski Island or/and Pearl & Hermes Atoll. End point is Midway Atoll with charter flight back to Honolulu.
All plans & destinations are subject to approval of Special Use Permit application & subject to change.
Besides activating very rare and possibly New-One IOTA islands, our group will include a world leading wildlife cinematographer, who shot many Emmy Award-winning films to meet one of the goals of the National Monument.
