The Viracocha Expedition is a series of reed raft voyages that aims to demonstrate the vast capacity of South American reed rafts. The Viracocha III Reed Raft will be attempting to cross the entire Pacific Ocean from South America to Australia and will further demonstrate that ancient South American civilizations could have crossed vast areas of Pacific Ocean in ancient-style vessels and that reed rafts could have possibly been one of the key factors in human migration in the Pacific.
Viracocha I Expedition (2000) was the first primitive vessel of any kind to reach the Easter Island in modern times. The Viracocha II Expedition, an entirely different raft, reached Easter Island once again with most of the same crew in the year 2003.
The Viracocha III will be crossing the entire Pacific !!
