​@ParlayRevival and @david_shih take me to a HIDDEN 200FT WATERFALL in Fatu Hiva but first we have to sail 50nm there from Tahuata in the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia. Be sure to check out their channels!! Thanks for sharing your footage David!

Fatu Hiva is home to the absolutely stunning Bay of Virgins, where many sailors first land after their Pacific crossing (including our friends Colin, David + the rest of the Parlay crew) as it's the southernmost inhabited island in French Polynesia. While it's dramatic basalt peaks are jaw-dropping, they make for tricky anchoring as they plummet into the ocean quickly reaching depths not suitable for anchoring. We eventually manage to find a spot to drop the hook but we're not super comfortable leaving Wanderlust unattended so Fabio stayed on board while I headed out with the Parlay crew to search for the hidden 200 ft waterfall. Join us for the adventure!

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin & Fabio Potenti, & our dog Yoda. We're a small family living aboard our catamaran, SV Wanderlust, sailing to Harbors Unknown. Exploring the world, connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how great food can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. Seeking to balance the desire to explore and travel to beautiful, remote locations while leaving no footprint, minimizing the Hawthorne effect of the observers who change the environment she or he observes.

We hope to inspire people and showcase the possibility of living an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment, all while keeping it real. Sharing the trials and tribulations of living off-grid, acknowledging the discomfort of detoxing from the modern world, finding pleasure in the subtleties of nature and joy in simplicity. Attempting to understand what makes the world tick and tock but also trying to gain a deeper comprehension of ourselves and identify what will satisfy that hunger for further exploration, for purpose. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world! Subscribe now to join our sailing adventure.
