We explore one of sailing’s most sacred stops and leave our mark! We also anchor by drone, feed sting rays stranded in a decaying resort pool, witness the migration of butterflies, avoid military target practice, sail into the Whitsunday’s and Pierce turns 8! It’s a jam packed, sailing packed, episode to bring 2021 to a close.
This will be our last episode for 2021 so we can spend time with our family over the holiday season. But don’t worry, we will be back in 2022 with more adventures in the Whitsunday’s and beyond!
We want to thank everyone for supporting us during 2021. Our little channel went from 30,000 subscribers to 66,00 in just one year! We’ve loved reading your comments and meeting viewers along the way. Many of which have now become lifelong friends (you know who you are!).
So, Happy Holidays world! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you in 2022!

We are posting live updates on our social channels:
ABOUT US: We are a family of five sailing around the world on a performance catamaran named “Archer” and sharing our adventures in family-friendly episodes every Tuesday!
OUR ROUTE: We departed the Boston area of the United States and sailed south to the Caribbean and then west through the Panama Canal. We have dealt with massive repairs in the South Pacific, the Coronavirus lock down in New Zealand, a Category 5 Cyclone in Fiji, and now we are cruising in Australia.
OUR PAST: You may remember us as “SV Honeymoon?” Ten years ago (“before kids”), we sailed a Lagoon 380 named Honeymoon halfway around the world to Sydney, Australia. Along the way we shared our experiences via YouTube and, by happenstance, created one of the very first “sailing channels.” We also realized what an incredible experience we were having and that someday we wanted to do it again, only this time with kids.
FAQ: More questions? Check out our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website or answers to many of your questions in this 40 minute episode:
