Pacific Puddle Jump
From the Americas to French Polynesia

Crew List

The Pacific Puddle Jump registration is now open for the 2018 crossing season.

Members of the PPJ begin their crossings anytime between February and May from a variety of places along the West Coast of the Americas.


Ever since we coined the phrase ‘Pacific Puddle Jump’ 23 years ago, the staff of Latitude 38 magazine has been intimately involved with the annual migration of cruisers from the Americas to French Polynesia.

Not only do we report on each year’s fleet in both our monthly magazine and online in our ‘Lectronic Latitude postings, but we host annual pre-departure parties in Mexico and Panama, and we co-host a three-day post-arrival celebration in Tahiti. In addition, we maintain an archive of articles, fleet lists and photos on this site.
