Meet the daCunha team


In the 16th century, Portuguese explorer Tristao da Cunha caught sight of a group of volcanic islands in the south Atlantic Ocean. As we all know, old-timey explorer types loved to christen their discoveries after themselves, and Mr. da Cunha was no exception. Though briefly known, during the 19th century, as the “Islands of Refreshment”, today, this almost unimaginably remote place is officially called Tristan daCunha. Population? Last we heard, 265.

We think it's fitting that we’ve named our bold venture after a tiny, faraway archipelago that appeals only to the most curious of people, who are rewarded for the journey. You won't find feeds, recommendations, or chatter here. daCunha.global is an online experience that is all yours.
