A Bay Area kayaker, who spent 92 days crossing the Pacific Ocean, finally reached Hawaii.

Cyril Derreumaux of Marin County completed the incredible journey Tuesday afternoon. He started paddling in June from Monterey and made landfall at Hilo. 

He explained why people could relate to his journey.

"I think people connected with the human spiritual journey," he said.
