Papah?naumoku?kea National Marine Monument
In the course of the years, submarine film-makers have travelled with scholars to the northwestern Hawaii islands to record the place and the work of the explorers. Immerse yourself and bathe with the marine archeologists as they view the shipwrecks on the seabed at Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument. They will help you learn about the vibrant sailing environment that makes the secluded island of Northwestern Hawaii a challenge for all!
It is the tale of a whaling accident that took place on a secluded cliff, a very unfortunate skipper and a crew of archeologists who discovered a life. On the midnight of February 11, 1823, Capt. George Pollard Jr.'s maritime life came to a tragic end in the secluded northwestern Hawaii.
After surviving the most notorious maritime disaster of the Essex and the real living experiences that inspire Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick, Pollard once again sails with optimism for the Pacific in the whaling ship Two Brothers, thinking with all his might "that it was an old saying that lightening never hit the same place twice".
Pollard's rewarding stint as a whaler commander came to a dramatic end on an unknown coral island in the world's most distant island, today's Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument. During 2008, a research unit of NEAA marine archeologists uncovered the first evidence of the whaler Two Brothers and began to uncover the secret of the only nantucket of whalehsip on the seabed.
Staged by Stephani Gordon of Open Boat Films, the documentary footage of marine archeologists at Papah?naumoku?kea Marine National Monument aims to record and interprete the naval history and shipwrecks and sunk airfields on the northwestern islands of Hawaii.
