Postcards from Fanning Island

I managed to snap off a few shots on my way to assist in a crew beach cleanup event at Tabuaeran, Fanning Island. This small Coral atoll is located halfway between Hawaii and Australia and only 228 nautical miles above the equator.

    We visted Fanning Island in 2004 and have the same photo of the rusted boat . . . I most remember the lack of ocean movement . . . the calmest seas ever. Thanks for the “remembery”

    We loved Fanning Island visited in October2011 on Rotterdam. It was the best part of our Tahiti Cruise.

    We visited the tiny island while on a Hawaiian cruise. It was so lovely, and we’ve often thought about just staying there for a month or two. I will never forget it. And the rusted tug boat – is a Pearl Harbor veteran.

    We were on the Westerdam when it stopped here in October. It was the highlight of our month long trip through the South Pacific. Will always remember this spot. And we also have the same picture of the shipwreck.

    Unfortunately, our cruise on the ms Amsterdam last year passed Kiribati in the middle of the night, and we didn’t get the chance to stop!

    Fanning Island has always been a must visit for me every year. You must try to get there!

    I remember working on Ncl and this was a stop I will never forget, the lovely people, sand, and the calmness of the ocean. We had a barbeque for patrons and islanders. Take me back!
