Welcome Aboard Yacht Teleport!

Ahoy there! Chris Bray and Jess Taunton here - two young Australian's, sailing the adventure of a lifetime! Having bought a tired old yacht in Canada in 2009, we spent three months in 2010 rebuilding her, named her 'Teleport', fell in love, and are now sailing her home to Australia, as slowly as possible, via the world's coolest & most remote places. In 2012 we became the first junk-rig (& youngest couple) to sail the infamous Northwest Passage in the Arctic above Canada! Considering as Jess had never sailed before, and Chris had to read up on junk-rig yachts and rebuilding and hand-starting single-cylinder boat engines, we've learnt lots already but can promise the next few years will be just as exciting, scary, heart-breaking and hilarious!

Although we have only been home for two weeks in-between running photo safaris on Kangaroo Island, Australia and on Monday we are setting off to run a safari in the Galapagos / Amazon, we have managed to edit TWO new teleport videos! Video Update #24 – Nelly’s Rest to Seldovia, July 2014 An amazing few weeks exploring the wonderful Prince William Sound, beside huge calving glaciers, seals on ice, orca, reversing tidal waterfalls, an unexpected gale and a visit from Aussie adventures and ...READ MORE >>

It's been a while - we've been busy - but we're very excited to have finally finished the next little video update for you guys! VIDEO UPDATE #23 covers our journey from Seward to Nelly's Rest, Alaska, back in July 2014. This was when, brand new shrimp pot ready, we headed around into Prince William Sound for the first time (like the popular Inside Passage' but more wildlife, and less people!), went hiking, watched humpback whales bubble-net feeding, were investigated by pods of orca, anchore...READ MORE >>

Black bear catching salmon in Anan Bay - Click for full-size.

So it turns out that two and a bit weeks isn't enough to do much more than simply pick one of endless possible routes through the maze of islands that forms SE Alaska's popular 'Inside Passage'. We plotted a fairly linear path from our entry at Elfin Cove, down and out through to Prince Rupert in Canada, leading us via many of the not-to-be-missed hotspots recommended to us by various boaters. It's certainly a beautiful area, with a good number of whales, bears, berries, 4G cellphone receptio...READ MORE >>

Chris on his birthday passing Cape Saint Elias - Click for full-size.

Exiting Cordova on 19th June, equipped with a wonderfully instant butane gas canister stove and stomachs full of excellent halibut burritos (from a Mexican food 'van' that's now enveloped by it's own restaurant) we were faced with a choice: We could turn left and attempt the tantalizingly short yet perilously shallow Orca Inlet out to sea, or turn right and retrace our route 50 miles (a full day sail) back up Orca Bay around Hawkins and Hinchenbrook Islands and exit Prince William Sound there in...READ MORE >>

Teleport for sale - Click for full-size.

S/V ‘Teleport’ for sale $39,950 USD, in Prince Rupert, Canada from August 2015 onwards. After months of contemplation about what to do with Teleport next year we have made the very hard decision to put her up for sale! It's not an easy decision to make, we really have been 'living the dream' for the past 5 years being able to take months off work each year and sail her that little bit closer back to home. However, we dream of other adventures too, like kayaking around remote islands, cycling...READ MORE >>
