Since publishing The White Ships in 2009, Duncan O'Brien has given live presentations about the Matson Line ship era to audiences in California, Hawai'i and Canada. He has presented in dozens of museums, book stores and schools. He has also appeared in numerous TV interviews and documentaries. 

In 2023 Duncan brought his extensive archive of Matson Line era content to audiences at sea, as an Enrichment Presenter aboard PRINCESS CRUISES ships. 

On selected cruises between California, Hawai'i, the South Seas, New Zealand and Australia, Duncan shares his personal collection of vintage photos, videos, and stories, celebrating the memories of the golden age of steamships on the Pacific.
