Karaka is looking for crew! Karaka is a 53 ft black steel ketch. In an effort to share, learn and grow, the boat is operated as a non profit cooperative, welcoming as crew anybody motivated to join with an open mind. The crew is usually but not always composed of a healthy mix of nomadic dreamers, musicians, philosophers, anarchists, wanderers and assorted non-conforming individuals, as well as less radical people, regardless of nationality, age, gender, worldview, background, or financial status. Attitude is what matters. We will have one or two bunks free after december, to join us in Kavieng, New ireland, PNG for the trip north to micronesia, then onward toward the phillipines.
