Cook's Ships


Captain Cook's most famous ship is Endeavour, in which he sailed on his First Voyage round the world.
On his Second Voyage he sailed in Resolution accompanied by Adventure.
And on his Third Voyage he sailed in Resolution, again, accompanied this time by Discovery.
The names of these four ships are said, by some, to summarise Cook's own character. But they weren't the only vessels he had commanded, nor in which he had sailed. There was Eagle, Pembroke and Grenville, whilst he was in the Navy, and Freelove and Three Brothers, amongst others, whilst he was learning the ropes before that.

Freelove Cook's first taste of life at sea was in this collier

Discovery The support vessel on the Third Voyage. The smallest of Cook's Pacific ships

Adventure Sailed on Cook's Second Voyage, captained by Tobias Furneaux.

Resolution Cook sailed in her twice, but with different escort vessels

Endeavour Only vessel on Cook's First Voyage.  Not a ship but a Bark.
