The downside? Long distances between atolls; very meager provisions on Majuro (the outer islands have only coconuts); some very uncomfortable anchorages; some very tricky launches; considerable risk of violent squalls; and some very sharky reef passes. We recommend the Marshall legs for those members who really are seeking some epic adventure but also everything that goes along with it- the good and bad. This is one of the hardest places we operate and it's just impossible to guarantee conditions. Logistically it doesn't get much more difficult.
This trip begins in Majuro- a dry dirty place that is typical of poor ports the world over. Nothing special and a place to quickly exit. From Majuro we head on a long overnight passage...downwind. And that's about all we can say. When we get there in the morning, well you'll see why we like to keep our mouths shut. And you won't want to leave. This trip in particular demands very strong kiting and wave skills and a strong stomach for the sailing. We recommend this one for only the most adventurous.
Inbound and outbound airport is Majuro (MAJ), which is serviced directly from Honolulu by United Airlines. Getting you back to Majuro from where we are going...yet to be determined.
PLEASE bring some gifts for the children- school supplies, books, etc. Do NOT bring candy and plasticky junk as it will cause fights and trash cannot be recycled.
