Depart: Kiritimati, Kiribati
Arrive: Honolulu, HI, USA
Length: 17 days
Focus: Remote Island Communities
This expedition will start with a survey of Christmas Island itself. A point of interest will be how the marine ecosystems have been affected by obstructions to the lagoon interfering with the pattern of currents.
A few short hops of 1-2 days sailing to Teraina and Tabuaeran. The team will stop on these islands to visit local communities and go diving, then a week-long sail to Hawaii.
