The Cabrinha Quest specializes in remote. We often go where very, very ever have before. Well on this trip we're going where even WE haven't been. Want bragging rights for going to a place pretty much no one has ever heard of? This baby is WAY out there. I have spent a lot of time in the Pacific, and the Mortlock islands (Satawan Atolls) have always been little more than a name for a place that sounds like something out of a science fiction book. Well, here's our chance. We begin in miraculous Pohnpei, one of the most fabulous places we found during the Best Odyssey Expedition. Pohnpei is known for their virgin reefs and pristine waters, visibility up to 200+ ft. and thriving hard coral society. We'll spend a couple days hopefully ripping P-Pass, one of the best right handers in the world, then head off 300 miles WSW to the Satawans where we'll find...who knows?

From Lonely Planet: "The Federated States of Micronesia sits in the heart of the Caroline Islands Archipelago, a vast seascape that extends from Palau in the west to Kiribati in the east. Situated within a rich center of biodiversity at the convergence of the major currents of the Indian Ocean, the Philippine Sea and the great Pacific Ocean, it is home to the world's greatest coral reefs and the best pelagic fisheries remaining in the world today."

Please note- we may need to adjust the dates on this voyage to accommodate flights from Satawan to Weno, in Chuuk. And, we might need to add 2-3 days to the trip so it's not such a rush on arrival to Satawan = more time to explore.
