In Spring of 2002 we transited the Panama canal taking Ventana from the waters of the Atlantic and Caribbean into the mighty Pacific for the first time.
Our route across the Pacific in 2002 included visits to Isla Cocos, Costa Rica, the Galapagos islands of Ecuador, the Marquesas, Tuamotus, Tahiti, and the Society Islands of French Polynesia. In 2003 we continued on in French Polynesia to Huahine, Raaitea, Tahaa, Bora Bora & Mopelia. From there we traveled to the Cook Islands of Aitutaki and Palmerston, and on to Samoa, Tonga and then Fiji. Our final legs in the Pacific took us to Vanuatu & New Caledonia before arriving in Australia in late 2003.
