So we’re technically checked out of the country, but we can’t seem to tear ourselves away from Mo’orea. It’s so nice here. We can swim with whales every day, dive, have friends over every night… it’s magical here. We’ve even been invited to go hiking by the guy we stole our dinghy from (lol, long story, we’ll get to that later).
Sailing Zingaro | Diving with Whales in Mo’orea
We’re planning our journey towards Kiribati. We’ll be sailing to Makatea (the only raised atoll in French Polynesia) then heading towards Raiatea and Bora Bora before we jump off towards the Line Islands.
Can you see what’s wrong with this picture? Find out in this week’s adventure sailing around Costa Rica on a plywood catamaran. The where, why, and when of one of life’s most intriguing questions: When will Zingaro’s dinghy die??
In this episode you’ll see “the incident” that finally killed our outboard. We ended up giving it away to a dock worker when we arrived in Ecuador. Funny enough, I needed some parts off of it later on and we were able to track it down and get the little pieces I needed for the new one.
Hope you like! This is a LONG episode, and took us quite a while to make. We think it’s got just about everything you’d need to get your sailing/maintenance/adventure fix today!

After a lot of work we decided to go back to what we do best: Sailing! In the last few days we found a bunch of great spots on the Ecuadorian coast. We’re very much in love with this part of the world!
