Voyages of Captain Cook

Map showing the three voyages of Captain James Cook

With the first version in red, second in green, and third in blue. The route of Cook's crew following his death is shown as a dashed blue line. This historical map shows the sea routes of 1700's as well. 

Cook's voyages by sea kayak?
I have heard that some guys from Australia and Britain are planning to complete the same voyages by sea kayak. They aim to design their own sea kayak for this kayaking expedition. Good luck to them!

Captain James Cook (1728 – 1779) was a British explorer, navigator, cartographer, and captain in the Royal Navy. Captain Cook made three voyages to the Pacific Ocean, during which he achieved the first recorded European contact with the eastern coastline of Australia and the Hawaiian Islands, and the first recorded circumnavigation of New Zealand.
