New Commemorative Aloha Shirt Celebrates 50th Anniversary of US National Marine Sanctuary System


The National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Office of National Marine Sanctuaries have announced a partnership with clothing brand Reyn Spooner to create a commemorative Aloha shirt in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the National Marine Sanctuary System and to support the Foundation.

To create this print, the Reyn Spooner design team combed NOAA’s photo archive for inspiration. The final product features 15 species of marine life that frequent Hawaiian waters, including humpback whales, green sea turtles and spinner dolphins.

The limited-run 50th anniversary Aloha shirt is available to purchase now at and at all five Reyn Spooner stores in Hawaii. The purchase of the shirt enables the company to support the National Marine Sanctuary Foundation and the National Marine Sanctuary System.

The shirt, which retails for US$119.50 (~€119.86), is available in three different styles — button front, pullover and tailored — in sizes XS to 3XL.
