After the Mugiwara crew reached the Sabaody Archipelago, they decided to take a "break" for 2 years.

But, before this break, how many month or years did it take for them to reach the Archipelago? How long was it after Luffy was released from the barrel?

According to this World Timeline and this other one, in total we're between the 2 and 3 years. In the first chapter, Luffy was 17, now he's 19.

The break took 2 years, but before that we have some months of Morgan (first antagonist) then Captain Kuro, Don Krieg, Arlong, etc.

  • So it's more or less 2 years and a couple of month from the start to nowadays ?! Dec 28, 2012 at 20:50

    I'd say more than a literal couple. But yeah, not more than three years. :)

When they reach the Red Line, the halfway point on the Grand Line, the crew celebrate and comment on what a year it had been. This is just before the Sabaody Archipelago Arc. So with the two year break, it is a little over 3 years in total.

This information is from the manga, not sure if they mentioned it in then anime.

According to the best One Piece timeline I've seen so far, it took Luffy and his crew something like 70 days, give or take like 20 days, from the time he left his barrel to the time he arrived at Sabaody Archipelago.
