Big Boat, Big Family, Big Adventures! (Sailing Fiji)

What’s it like living on a big 58-foot catamaran with a family of 7 (including us) sailing around Fiji?

It’s like herding cats!

At least that’s what Keith says every time we’re all scrambling about and he’s waiting in the dinghy.  Which happens a lot.  Because most everything done on this boat, is done as a family.  Not by force, but by choice.

It’s a beautiful thing to see.  And believe it or not, it’s a common experience when it comes to nomadic families. No one wants to be left out or left behind and age differences don’t matter nearly as much as common interests do.

We’re picking up right where we left you last, in the Yasawa Islands of Fiji.  We’ve already introduced you to the Whitaker family and their big beautiful sailboat Zatara.  So now, its time to dive into the adventures.  Giant manta rays, sunken ships, and salty friendships!




Ups, downs and all arounds, we share it all. We’re able to do so because people like you show up each week, read, watch, comment, share, shop our gear store, and toss a tip in our production jar. If you like what you see, there are lots of FREE ways you can show your support.

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    They look like A LOT of fun to hang out with, good to see you were able to meet up. I quite enjoy both yours and Zatara’s channels.

  • Paul Reynolds

    Great to see you having such fun and good company too, it will be quiet when you get back to yours though !

  • Mary

    Looks like fun! Snorkeling and diving all in 1 day! Glad you are having some fun!!

    I was counting back to see how long it’s been since you guys have been out for a meal-at a restaurant?

  • Larry

    Likewise on seeing the laughter. I’ve been in isolation since my Jamaica trip was canceled in April. Was in the Navy but Submarines, well…Now I live through your eyes and enjoy your channel better than anything on t.v.

    Adventures and Under the Sea romance, this video story has it all. And ditto to the hula girl shirt, I want one. Very stylin! Those youngsters are going to wear you out. I don’t know if was coral, the first growth on the sunken ship, but it was beautiful. Light green and kind of lacey looking, amazing. You should have the young girls show Nikki how to do a cart wheel, she looks athletic enough to rock that! Enjoy that sea air, nothing like it.

    Look like yall are having a blast. maybe a trip to Tonga is in order seeing there is nothing else to do and you two could jump ship 🙂 Good luck.

  • Alan Solomon

    You guys were having such fun this video.
    Those Rays were HUUUGE. That Ray was the size of the dingy or bigger.
    I heard Jason, when he said “we are not people that hurry or are rushed”. Kids want it NOW!!! Lets GO NOW!!!
    When you guys got to the restaurant and that wooden deck area, I could see those kids were having fun being kids.
    Pizza looked great. The deep water from the drone looked better. Jason was smiling ear to ear. Awesomeee!!!….

    Great video with lots of fun! We are fellow Texans living in CA and when we come across other Texans we seem to have a lot in common! Part of that is having fun in what ever situation you are in and getting to know people for who they really are! Can’t wait to see the next big adventure.

  • Roger B

    What’s better than making friends that share a common interest and sharing those interest?

  • Marge Nehlsen

    That pizza looked SO good. The video showed that you all seemed to be having a blast. You are certainly keeping super busy
    Thanks and happy adventures to you.

  • David H

    You guys are so awesome! This was a great video! I’m inspired to do all kinds of stuff today! I was just going to watch re-runs of Wicked Tuna today but you have motivated me to go out and do! Thanks again!

  • Cathryn
