The migrations of Austronesian peoples and associated archaeological cultures involved a long chain of island hopping voyages across the Pacific Ocean

Island hopping is the crossing of an ocean by a series of shorter journeys between islands, as opposed to a single journey directly to the destination.

During World War 2, the island hopping strategy was used by the United States to expedite the War in the Pacific Ocean.
