On his second voyage, he circumnavigates and maps New Zealand (not portrayed here). On his third voyage, he explores the South Pacific, and becomes the first European to explore the Hawaiian Islands. He then ventures up the west coast of America to Alaska. Returning to Hawaii for the winter, he is attacked and stabbed to death on the beach at Kealakekua Bay.

Our resources encourage interaction and fun while introducing locations, weather/social conditions, cities, countries, seas, oceans and continents.
