Explore Family Adventuring
From January until November 2013 the Schafer Family, with 7 children from age 1 to 18, took their most adventurous trip ever. With basic sailing experience they will traveled from California to Australia with stops in the islands of French Polynesia (Marquesas, Tuamotu and Society Islands – including Bora Bora), the Cook Islands, Niue, Tonga, Samoa, Fiji and Vanuatu. Thanks to a Ham radio you can see view a history of their GPS locations which were transmitted during their adventure.
Over two months the Schafer’s discovered the Cook Islands and French Polynesia as they slept on floors, stayed in over-water bungalows and explored the Marquesas Islands on a freighter ship with their 5 children.
