Program Description:
 
SM Logo with tag   S/Y Argo
 
Caribbean to Tahiti
90 Days aboard S/Y Argo

 
  • Academic courses (12 credits): oceanography, marine biology, basic seamanship, leadership
  • 6,500 Nautical Miles via Panama, Galapagos, The Marquesas

Sail to Bonaire and awake to flocks of Venezuelan flamingos flying through a misty sunrise. Toss the dock lines up to the lock workers of the Panama Canal, cross the lake and prepare to enter the Pacific Ocean. Watch the latitude hesitate on zero as we cross the equator. See blue-footed booby birds hitching a ride on deck back to the Galapagos Archipelago. Linger no more as every day of the next 20 will be spent at sea until we make landfall in the Polynesian Islands of the Marquesas, the place where Paul Gauguin found his inspiration and love. You too will love arriving in Tahiti in the Society Islands, but, after all, that's just a place to secure the schooner. You will have secured lifetime memories along the way.
