Captain Cook's Three Pacific Voyages

Captain James Cook (27th November 1728-14th February 1779) was a British explorer and Post-Captain in the Royal Navy. He was also a navigator and cartographer, making detailed maps of Newfoundland as well as mapping the Pacific from the Antarctic to Arctic Circles during his three famous voyages of exploration. These voyages provided the scientists on board – and those back home - with important new information about the Pacific Ocean and the people, plants and animals they encountered on its islands and shores. Cook’s first voyage (1768-1771) was in HMB Endeavour, the aim of which was to observe the Transit of Venus in Tahiti then sail south in search of Terra Australis Incognita.
