(Nuku’alofa, Otu Tolu Group, Tonga) The cupboards are stocked, the sails are ready, and the engine is started. We’ve been watching the weather for ever and today is our day to set out for New Zealand! There’s 1000 nautical miles of South Pacific Ocean between us and our destination. Not that long compared to our […]

(Rautoanui Pass, Raiatea, Society Islands, French Polynesia) The surf’s up and the living is easy! The sun is out, the paddle boarding is sweet, our friends are rad, and a bunch of other things are equally fantastic, though that doesn’t sound near as cool so I’ll just stick with my initial statement. Some awesome days […]

(Rautoanui Pass, Raiatea, Society Islands, French Polynesia) Today was filled with a cornucopia of necessities, manoeuvres, and good times. We loaded up on fuel and food in the town of Uturoa. We moved Oceanna around the north end of Raiatea to post up along a western facing pass which has been endowed with two mirror […]

(Uturoa, Raiatea, Society Islands, French Polynesia) Three months has already passed, I can hardly believe it. Today marks our 90th day “officially” in French Polynesia. Which means, those in charge would now like us to vacate their country. When checking into French Polynesia, cruisers are granted a 90 day stay visa. Way back in Panama […]

  (Fare, Huahine, Society Islands, French Polynesia) This whole post is just going to be an excuse to share this great shot from Joe. Bobbing out in Huahine’s anchorage with her friends. Oceanna sits real pretty under a rainbow with Fraya, Swell, and Full Circle.

(Fare, Huahine, Society Islands, French Polynesia) Fool me once… shame on no one! I’m totally down for a little lie if there’s cake involved. Therefore Ceasar remains squarely filed away in my good books. Yesterday, before we all parted ways, Ceasar let it be known that today was his birthday. A factoid we cheerfully accepted, […]

(Fare, Huahine, Society Islands, French Polynesia) Through an invitation from Kuhela, we spent today with the boys and a local guy named Ceasar. The aim of the day was to hike to the top of Mouatapu, or as Ceasar simply called it, Tapu. Tapu is the third tallest mountain on Huahine rising up to 429m […]

(Fare, Huahine, Society Islands, French Polynesia) Here’s a shot from today unlike any other I’ve been able to share. Thanks to our mate Joe, armed with his sweet freediving skills and awesome camera equipment, we get a glimpse of Gregory in his underwater happy place. Probably 40-50 feet underwater Gregory hangs out, custom gun in […]

(Fare, Huahine, Society Islands, French Polynesia) We’ve been in Huahine for three days now. Regrettably the weather has been less than enjoyable. The strong winds charge up and over Huahine’s peaks, barreling through our wide-open, not so protected anchorage, and then eddy around sending us spinning on our anchor. While things above the water have […]

(Underway, Moorea – Huahini) Farewell Moorea, you were oh so fine. We surfed your waves, ran your roads, swam with your sea life, and got lost in your forests. Our gratitude is genuine. Another thank you goes to the Hilton Moorea Lagoon Resort and Spa. We loved the comfy chairs in your beautiful lobby, and […]
