45 men and women set sail from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia in October of 2000 on a epic voyage of discovery aboard the 180-foot, three-masted barque that, when completed, will have called at 47 ports in 22 countries in three oceans.
Since the voyage commenced a year ago, the majestic Picton Castle has called at Panama, the Galapagos Islands, Pitcairn Island, Tahiti, the Cook Islands, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, the Solomon's, Papua New Guinea and Australia, before sailing into Bali's Benoa Harbor last week.
The journey and the adventures of the crew are recorded at its own website and in a 16-episode reality TV documentary. The TV series, already being shown on Canada's Life Network, will continue through the Fall of 2002, several months after the ship's scheduled return to Lunenburg in July of next year. Plans are for the series to soon be syndicated for a larger world-wide audience.
During the layover in Bali, Captain Daniel Moreland and his crew will be filmed diving on Bali’s north shore with Yos' Diving Center, white water rafting with Sobek Adventures, visiting one of Bali’s most remote villages with the East Bali Poverty Project, visiting a dance school for children in the village of Blahbatuh, receiving a Mandi Lulur traditional massage at the Ubud Sari Health Spa, getting cooking lessons with Chef Heinz von Holzen at Rumah Bali, visiting local temples and cultural sites, and attending a special palace dinner in their honor at the Royal Puri Anyar Kerambitan.
Local arrangements in Bali were organized and coordinated by Bali Discovery Tours.
