Welcome to the 2020 PPJ fleet.

By signing up, your boat will be included in our fleet 'safety database', and your daily positions recorded. You will also be eligible to receive substantial discounts from our sponsors including a discount on a special package offered by a Tahitian yacht agent that includes clearance in and out, repatriation bond exemptions for your crew, and duty-free fuel access beginning in the Marquesas. You will also receive an official PPJ burgee and other PPJ 'swag'.

Registration for the 2020 Puddle Jump requires a per-boat participation fee. The standard entry fee is $75. Boats shorter than 35 feet or owners younger than 35 years of age pay a discounted rate of $60.

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’ 25 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.
