Sailing the Middle Pacific


Leaving French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Tonga and Fiji were ahead for Inspiration.

Aitutaki clearly deserves its award of most beautiful lagoon in the World.  No large tourist infrastructure there.   The Atoll is the most authentic we visited so far in the Pacific.  A true jewel !  In addition, the Cook Islanders are extremely friendly and welcoming, which adds to the entire experience !


The Vavau group of islands in Northern Kingdom of Tonga is well known to be great place for whale watching.  Despite us being late in the season, we were able to sight a couple of humpback whales while sailing in the channels between the islands.

Inspiration then sailed on to Fiji.  Landing in SavusSavu was amazing.  This is a secret little paradise.   So much to explore in Fiji, we are only scratching the surface.
