  • 2010 Talisker Bounty Boat, McIntyre Adventure

    One of the greatest open boat journeys in maritime history For over 20 years, Don had dreamt of recreating William Bligh's epic voyage of survival, with 18 of his crew, once cast adrift during the Mutiny on the "HMS Bounty" in 1789. Bligh sailed that open long boat ,nearly 4000 miles, over 48 days from Tofua, in the Kingdom of Tonga, all the way to Kupang in West Timor. It is considered one of the greatest open boat journeys in maritime history. While Building "ICE" his new 15.2mtr expedition vessel in China, Don decided it was now or never. Three years of planning and preparation saw him ready to set sail on April 28th 2010, with a crew of three. The "Talisker Bounty Boat" was a 7.3meter open whale boat, loaded to just 40cm of freeboard. It would be an attempt not to be historically corr...

    This film tells the story of a group of doctors who went to the South Pacific islands of Tonga to immunize people against smallpox, using an experimental vaccination device. The narrator, one of the doctors, gives a brief history of Tonga, explaining that the small population is peaceful, isolated, and has no history of smallpox. He then explains the new jet injection gun, operated by foot pedal, which is much cheaper and more efficient than standard vaccination methods. Doctors first vaccinate the royal family which sets an example for the rest of the population, who willingly accept the vaccinations and are pleasantly surprised by the relatively painless process. After vaccinating everyone on the main island, the doctors take fishing boats out to the smaller surrounding islands to vaccin...

There in the anchorage at Big Mama's, we met about 15 other boats, all preparing for the storm that was still two days away.

Australian detectives said international law agencies had been monitoring the 13m (42ft) vessel, called JeReVe, from when it left South America until they lost contact with it last month. Two divers discovered the boat off Tonga's Vava'u island group and found a man's body when they went on board. "Also located on board that vessel were 204, 1kg (2.2lb) blocks of cocaine destined for the Australian market," acting national manager for serious and organised crime David Sharpe told a news conference. The yacht, which Tongan authorities were unable to search initially because of difficult tidal conditions and its remote location, was event...

The "Talisker Bounty Boat" was a 7.3meter open whale boat, loaded to just 40cm of freeboard. It would be an attempt not to be historically correct, but simply to try getting close to Bligh and his men. They too would live with only the things Bligh had in his boat, no toilet paper, no charts, a tiny amount of food and only two weeks of water. Many people thought they would not survive! Don and his crew faced certain death on one occasion and were capsized four times filling the boat with water. They did survive, arriving in Kupang just three hours after Bligh. Don lost 18kg through starvation rations on the voyage and suffered kidney stones that he said at the time made him more scared than he has ever been in his life! It was during the one month of final preparations in Tonga for this voyage, that Don heard "roomers" about the many wrecks supposedly in Tonga!

In April 2017 we chartered a 38ft catamaran in the tiny island nation of Tonga. Crystal clear blue water, protected anchorages and perfect wind made this an ideal sailing location! This is the result from our 10 days in the beautiful Kingdom of Tonga! Give it a thumbs up if you enjoy!

After departing Tonga for New Zealand on October 30, 2012, we saw a low depression forming to the south. We were only 150 miles away from Tonga so rather than weathering the depression in the open ocean, we headed back to Nuku'alofa. There in the anchorage at Big Mama's, we met about 15 other boats, all preparing for the storm that was still two days away. When it hit, we were so glad to be safely on two anchors rather than in the open ocean. Here's a taste of what we experienced for 48 hours...

Police in the South Pacific are investigating how a yacht carrying a decomposed body and £78m worth of cocaine washed up on a deserted tropical island. Australian detectives said international law agencies had been monitoring the 13m (42ft) vessel, called JeReVe, from when it left South America until they lost contact with it last month. Two divers discovered the boat off Tonga's Vava'u island group and found a man's body when they went on board. "Also located on board that vessel were 204, 1kg (2.2lb) blocks of cocaine destined for the Australian market," acting national manager for serious and organised crime David Sharpe told a news conference. The yacht, which Tongan authorities were unable to search initially because of difficult tidal conditions and its remote location, was eventually found to be carrying the drugs in its hull. Police and customs officials launched an investigation in August after being alerted that a vessel was en route from Ecuador to Australia. They formed a special group with US authorities to examine vulnerabilities in the South Pacific being exploited by international organised crime syndicates. "Vessels transiting through the Pacific into Australia have been identified as a high-risk area of drug smuggling," Mr Sharpe said. In late 2010, Australian police said they had arrested four men in Sydney over a plot to smuggle almost 700kg (1,540lb) of cocaine into the country via Tonga.
