Te Toki Voyaging Trust was established over 30 years ago through the vision and leadership of tohunga waka, Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr (Tainui). Hoturoa's whakapapa links him deeply to Kāwhia Moana, the ancient settlement of the Tainui people and Canoe. Since its inception, Te Toki Voyaging Trust has built a vast fleet of various sailing and paddling waka.
