The ships traveled to Virginia using the favorable southerly route across the Atlantic Ocean, taking advantage of trade winds and stopping at numerous islands to resupply. Cramped, unsanitary conditions and unrelenting boredom created tension and conflict among the passengers. After 6,000 miles at sea and the loss of only one passenger in the Caribbean Islands, the voyagers arrived off the coast of Virginia. On May 13, 1607, they decided upon James Island as the site of their new settlement.
