The Hawaiian Islands are an archipelago of eight major islands, several atolls, and numerous smaller islets in the North Pacific Ocean, extending some 1,500 miles or 2,400 kilometers from the island of Hawai’i in the south to the northernmost Kure Atoll. Formerly the group was known to Europeans and Americans as the Sandwich Islands, a name that James Cook chose in honor of the 4th Earl of Sandwich, the then-First Lord of the Admiralty. The contemporary name of the islands, dating from the 1840s, is derived from the name of the largest island, Hawai’i Island.
Yes, these islands have become a real tourist attraction and as you know, to go from any part of the world, you will have to travel by plane. But what about the transportation between the Hawaiian islands? The future of travel between those islands could be moving from tens of thousands of feet in the air to just a few feet up. Boston-based electric ”sea glider” maker
REGENT announced that Hawaiian Airlines made a major investment in the company, in support of the development of a sea glider that would transport up to 100 passengers from dock to dock, traveling just above the water’s surface. The sea gliders produce zero emissions and travel just over the water’s surface, rather than thousands of feet in the air like traditional planes.
The planes fly at the speed of an aircraft, but with the operating cost of a boat, according to RECENT. Currently, the company’s sea gliders called the Monarch, can travel up to 180 miles using ”next-gen batteries” to get a range of up to 500 miles. Oh man, just imagine going from Kona Harbor, on the Big Island to downtown Honolulu, on Oahu, in less than 55 minutes door to
door. Pretty amazing, right?
