Petite Tabac 360 Panorama

I’ve mentioned Petite Tabac in recent posts. It’s a beautiful island located just outside the horseshoe reef protecting the main anchorage of the Tobago Cays – a marine park which is part of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Petite Tabac was used as the island where Elizabeth and Captain Jack Sparrow were stranded and Elizabeth burned his stockpile of rum in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie.

I had been on the island once before, so I knew we had to go again and take some pictures. We took a 360 panorama from the deck of Tahina in the small anchorage. Surprisingly, four catamarans managed to squeeze in there for a few hours that day. I had never seen more than two. We also went ashore and took some kite aerial photos, but you’ll have to wait a while to see the results of those (which will show up in Google Earth someday).

So, imagine yourself on the deck of Tahina and view this panorama. Make sure you zoom in (choose full screen too) and tilt your view up to look at the mast. Turn around to see the Tobago Cays, Canoun, Union Island, and many other islands and boats. (NOTE: The anchorage was choppy, so Tahina was bobbing on the seas. I tried to keep things level, but there are some stitching problems with the horizon if you look closely. Overall, I think it works though.)

    Your right, you can see some of the stitching but it still looks great – still I’d rather see it in person. :-) Maybe some day.
    Take care guys,
    P.S. It finally starting to warm up to around 40 or so here. 😉

    My brother and I are trinellavg from Sydney to Perth over the top of Australia, about 6,000 miles middle of next year on a 26ft RIB. We are doing it to raise awareness of prostate cancer testing and raise money for research. This kite camera is a great idea as we are doing a documentary of it as we go. While there will be some professional production crews from time to, this will be great for video and still camera work. To be also able to contribute to Google earth and maps would also be excellent. Can you give me any advice or guidance on building a system?
