We created a network to accelerate all of that
Ocean Nomads is home for the free spirits living or after an eco-minded active healthy outdoor lifestyle in, on and near the sea.
There are other humans in this world with your way of living, with similar ocean travel and lifestyle dreams. Often hidden in the wild somewhere. But here we unite.
We get you and your lifestyle choices. And we are here to support, team-up & meet-up for more fun and ocean impact.
We live nomadically or aspire to do so. And we support each other at each step of our journey.
Some of us live as an ocean nomad already for decades (age is just a number;)). Others are just dipping their toes. It doesn’t matter. We were all once newbies. What unites us is our passion for the sea, our health and the health of the ocean and our need for more community and making a positive impact in our wild lifestyles.
We connect ocean people, resources, boats, adventure opportunities, ideas and knowledge to realize ocean travel, accelerate our eco and passion projects, and adventure with more fun, impact and nature connection.
Hola! I’m Suzy! I didn’t grow up near the ocean, but during the now +15 years of nomadding, I learned to dive, surf, and freedive. Superpowered by the ocean sports, driven by curiousity, and with an urge to learn and explore more, I just had to move to the sea. I discovered sailing boats as way of travel. More accessible than I thought was possible. Since, I’ve travelled +40.000 miles, 5 Atlantic crossings, and on dozens of sailing vessels in every ocean. I then got the captains papers so I can also take others sailing and share what the magic is all about. Over the years we’ve been hosting numerous sailing adventures. To keep the momentum and connections going of these beautiful weeks at sea, and to facilitate more ocean adventures between all of you, whether you joined a trip or not, I set up the Ocean Nomads membership. Because I believe to get the ocean truly in your heart, you need to experience the ocean. With Ocean Nomads I’m excited to connect more of you to each other, the sea, and a more conscious way of life on and near the sea. A safe and supportive and purpose-driven community is what I’ve been missing in my sailing journey, so I created it to got your back on your journey.

So far we have +300 members from +35 different nationalities. We have +70 members with vessels who are occasionally looking for ocean nomads valued crew and therefore prefer to find within our network.
Our members are liveaboards, adventure travellers, (aspiring) sailors, people working in the sailing, surf or ocean sports industry, eco project initiators, impact entrepreneurs as well as surfers and (free)divers looking to design their lives around the ocean. We have a growing group of vanlifers and overlanders as well who navigate the coastlines. We’re a varied mix of salty souls with a shared drive to live pure, simple, free and protect planet ocean.
Our members are young by heart. We do not exclude someone because of their chronological age. We have members in there 20s up to maybe even someone in their 80s! We all have a lot to learn and give to each other. It’s about the mindset and drive for ocean adventure and making a positive impact.
On our membership portal you can sea who is near you. On the Ocean Nomads map we feature members, vessels, basecamps, projects, friends and other local happenings ocean nomads should know about.
Yes! While big focus of our community is on life AT sea, most of us also love the land. Our common interest in a love for nature, cultivating conscious living. and connecting with other freedom spirits creating a lifestyle around this. Besides many member living on boats, also many of us live off grid, in our van, just with a backpack OR are curious to learn more about all it. As sailors we also need places and people on the land to visit, and as land people we also need adventurers in our life :). If you align with our values, you’ll find beautiful connections in our network.
At the moment we offer two memberships:
Nomad Membership (65 euro / year) And Vessel Membership (119 euro / year).
We don’t have monthly memberships for the reason that relationship building takes time. We do our very best to create meaningful personal connection and therefore we simply got to know each other a little bit. We go for quality over quantity.
We believe with a little barrier-to-entry membership fee, we attract those truly determined. And it helps us do what we do. We don’t want to mess around on social media too much. It’s too shallow, too noisy, and not real. Via the ocean nomads membership we can do more and become more.
Pan pan! Membership fees go up later in 2023. Lock in the current rate today.
We are not an online community. We’re all about sharing, exploring, and thriving in the great outdoors. We host a couple off facebook groups, started initially to simply enhance the sharing economy by sharing and posting relevant ocean adventure opportunities. But we intend to move away form the big corporates that can sell your data or delete your efforts with a click, and have fake profiles. We’re not actively managing the facebook groups. Life is too short for that. And we don’t want to encourage scrolling while the outdoors is waiting for you. All our efforts are going into cultivating a kind, safe, and adventure community offline. We have a dedicated membership platform set up using a platform called mightynetworks with the goal to create more meaningful connections, support each other with questions and answers, so at the end of the day we have more time for the important stuff: connect to nature. By becoming a contributing member we can contribute to your journey. Oh. and we will NEVER sell your data. Welcome to the family!
Hell yeah! But away from corporate giant infrastructure. We don’t want to facilitate scrolling, we want to facilitate outdoor action! We like to be independent and the whole idea behind the online platform is for us to spend less time online and on the dream realization distracting socials. That includes us who manage Ocean Nomads. Our members are our top priority! And outdoor play. If there’s time left or the weather is bad we connect to social media now and then.
Safety and Kindness first. Membership can be denied or cancelled if we feel reasons to do so. We automatically accept member requests but all gets reviewed. Especially when it comes to sailing we want to do what we can to connect you to kind, responsible, happy people. We have experienced 1 case where we declined and of course then refund the fees. We also just rolled out a verification system where members can leave references to each other.
Of course! Through the member network you can reap the benefits of more adventure, impact and community in your life all year and near you. As long as you align with our values and vision you are welcome to join!
We have pulled all our community management into one place to be able to focus on YOU. We are using a tool called Mightynetworks. You can access our network via their app or via desktop. Also, it works in the browser. The APP though is really good so we do recommend you to download that. You’ll have like your personally nomad journey advisory board in your pocket! No advertisement, no data being sold, just you and community.
Spent time with people who live or are looking to live the lifestyle, adventures and missions you dream of. Before you know it, you live it too!
