Driven by passion and purpose for the love of the ocean, we explore the exciting and natural ways to travel oceans and create regenerative lifestyles.

We are a mix of ambitious adventurers, entrepreneurs, alternative lifestyle seekers, self-sufficiency enthusiasts, water sports fanatics, and wannabe liveaboards.

We’ve tested Twisters sea worthiness, met the lovely owners, skipper, and mate, and experienced the performance and potential of this vessel. She’s beautiful. She’s solid. She’s big. She’s spacious. She’s super comfortable. She’s got soul. She lasts. We’re super excited to take her on an offshore voyage this autumn.
This is not just an expedition you join for a week and that's it. This is an experience that will change the way you approach life, nature and the ocean. We believe our expeditions are just the beginning for plotting the next course in your life. By jumping on board this voyage, you will also join our expanding global network of impact-driven travellers, ocean entrepreneurs, sailors, (free)divers, surfers, and active salty souls passionate about the ocean and eager to do good. It's the people who make the trip and we walk the extra mile to get a diverse but like-minded adventure-spirited bunch together.
It's a hands-on trip and everyone is expected to join all duties on board. It's ok to not have sailing experience. We also take professional crew and we'll be teaching it all.
Originally we planned to sail across the Atlantic. And maybe we still will if the situation allows. At any case, we can't wait for some serious sea time and we start with the sail from the Netherlands to the Canaries to just be connected to nothing but nature and an epic bunch of adventure seekers, lifestyle designers, ocean entrepreneurs, and eco-minded salty souls.
Please note that to be able to do the trip a contribution is required. It's not cheap but it's really cheap for what you get and compared to anything similar out there. We just want to make it happen :) But we have no rich owner owning the boat here ;). We do provide a discount for Ocean Nomads members.
Please read the description as well as our profile carefully to explore if it's for you. It'll answer most of your questions. If it's a hell yeah, we welcome your application! We'd love to chat with you on the phone to align expectations and see if we're a great fit. It's the people who make the trip :) and we walk the extra mile to pull a beautfful crew together.
Welcome on board!
