Captain Olivia O. Wyatt takes to the seas solo with her 34-ft Ta Shing Panda, Juniper. Her most recent expedition was a transpacific crossing from San Diego to Hawaii, a journey of approximately 2,269 nautical miles. That trip was just the first leg of a solo voyage around the world, guided by humpback whale migration patterns.

The Arkansas-native has travelled to more than 25 countries, creating ethnographic films along the way which focus on preserving the traditions of indigenous communities. A recent film was used as the official music video for Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s song “This is Far From Over.”
