travel in the South Pacific

If you’ve enjoyed sharing our journey so far, you’ll be excited to hear that I’m now able to communicate with you while we travel through the remote South Pacific. Our social media accounts may have gone dark, but YOU can still receive photos and stories from the middle of the South Pacific in real time as Zia 🐶 and I sail throughout French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, and Niue… not to mention there are multiple exclusive satellite tracking maps that allow you to track our progress and read up-to-the-moment messages about our experience! All you have to do is sign up here for the journey.

By becoming a supporter, you will also be enabling us to continue on, meaning more adventure in the future for you, too! I’m really excited to be able to share it all with you.

how to ship out with us

 

stowaway

Become a part of our journey across the South Pacific this year as a Stowaway, receiving access to our exclusive tracking map displaying up-to-the-minute details on our location, as well as my little “message in a bottle” status updates.

join the crew

Crew will not only have access to our tracking map, but will also get a peek into the Peregrina’s Log! I’ll write to you with our stories of the South Pacific this year, and share photos with you so you can experience the unique beauty of this remote part of the ocean.

become a mate

The skipper takes special care of her officers. As we travel, I’ll capture details in photography and words just for you and share them with you via satellite e-mails. You can also reach out to me while we sail, and I’ll answer your questions about our journey. I’ll post international letters and postcards to you from the islands (along with the benefits of every other rank).

 

a peek into what you’ll get

During our previous passages, these photos and stories were exclusively shared with our crew and mates and have never been posted since! Experience views like these and much more by shipping out with us this year as we travel through the South Pacific.

that one time when my first dophin passage companions ever showed up and swam just beneath my toes, and i wept at the magic of it all…

On my second day in the North Pacific High, I had my first ever visit at sea by a pod of dolphins. They swam with me, dancing through water under my feet at the bow. I couldn’t believe I was standing on top of dolphins. I wrote, “…their color through that blue blue water was incredible!”

one offended bird and a half-digested fish…

I adjusted a line from the cockpit and heard an offended “SQUAWWWWK”. Zia started barking, and we went forward to discover a bird on deck that had vomited up a half eaten fish, and was stuck in the space on the deck between the windows and the fuel cans! This was the beginning of an adventure to get the bird off the boat…

i was so cold by this point, how on earth did this guy in need of warmth survive 26 days?!

It had been cold and grey for days, and we were only a couple of days from the end of our journey. But on this day, the sun came out and Zia and I were basking in the cockpit. I looked up to check for ships, and saw this little stowaway basking in the sun with us! This led to a funny chase all over the deck and up the mast for us…


come along with us

I hope you’ll join us and share our experience on the high seas. There will be highs and lows, stories of what we find out there on the great blue and in the islands, laughing and crying… I promise a great adventure with us on this first leg of our westward journey around the globe!
