Traveling off the grid by boat through some of the wildest reaches of the earth means that sometimes luxuries like a perfectly plump tomato are beyond our reach. And here in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia you can’t exactly hop into the car and head to the store to pick up a few snacks. But it’s a small price to pay for what we gain in return, and luckily there is an abundant food supply of huuuuuge crabs all over the island. So we grab a bucket, a hard hat, and a big machete (YES our techniques are a bit unconventional 😂 ) and we set off on the HUNT!

With our fridges and our bellies full, we pull the hook and head off to another anchorage with some truly unbelievable history. This is the site where the Kon-Tiki Expedition made landfall after 101 days drifting across the Pacific Ocean on a balsa wood raft. We learn all about the fascinating story (seriously, this is an UNBELIEVABLE tale) and see firsthand where they crashed through the reef right here in Raroia.

You can find all the camera gear we use, our must have cruising essentials, tools, recommended reading, safety gear, and more at our amazon storefront!
