Uncle Snake

Ships collect colorful characters, not just in fiction, but in real life.

The Hawaiian voyaging wa’a Hokule’a has a number of fascinating people aboard at any time, but “Uncle Snake Ah Hee” is one of the veterans.


Uncle grew up in a fishing family that also surfed, dived and paddled canoe all the time. By the time he became a lifeguard at the hotels on Maui, uncle was known for his water skills and humble personality.

I have noticed that the best leaders are the ones with the most humility.
