Tasman Sea: one of the most diverse Oceans in the world, from tropical to polar waters.
Lying between Australia & New Zealand, stretching from the Auckland Islands to Norfolk Island, fed by the Coral Sea, Pacific & Southern Oceans & Weather systems. Tasman Odyssey will traverse 15,000km of the Tasman Sea; in a Kayak, Solo & Unsupported, through millions of waves, in all weather; conducting research & recording a plethora of marine species: Whales, Sharks, Orcas, Dolphin, Tuna, seals, Leafy Sea Dragons… Fear & Loneliness will be constant companions. Seven times longer than a single Trans-Tasman crossing, a massive undertaking. A world first; a Nine month journey that will take almost five Years to conceive & complete.
Planning, Preparation, Protocols, Practice = Prepared.
