“The future is in the hands of those who explore… and from all the beauty they discover while crossing perpetually receding frontiers, they develop for nature and for humankind an infinite love.”
Jacques Cousteau

Explore The Ocean

Ocean Nomads is a community of impact and adventure driven oceanminded lifestyle designers looking to or living a nomadic lifestyle around the sea. We are a mix of sailors, liveaboards, nomads, entrepreneurs, hitchhikers, expeditioners, surfers, (free)divers and other adventure souls in which we can’t be boxed. Our mission is to build a thriving movement for low-carbon ocean exploration & action. We connect salty souls, share insights, help each other on our journeys, establish relationships and develop solutions to save our oceans. 

“I always had the dream to go sailing one day. But, like many, I did not grow up with sailing and I thought it’s something for the very wealthy. Now, thanks to the Ocean Nomads, I know different..
Last summer I had my first sailing experience on an Ocean Nomad Sailing Trip in Spain. I initially signed up for one week, but ended up staying 1,5 months, and sailed as part of the crew from Northern Spain to the Canaries Islands. On this trip, I met a lot of like-minded people with similar goals and dreams. I also realized that it is possible to learn sailing in a low-key, affordable way. After this trip, I got so inspired that I decided to buy my own sailboat. After some research, I decided to buy a previous sailboat of an Ocean Nomad friend that I just met through the network, and together we sailed the boat from Ireland to Spain. Thanks to him I gained enough confidence to continue on my own. Without Ocean Nomads this would not have been possible. So if you are slightly interested in sailing, the ocean, meeting like-minded people and perhaps want to join a sailing trip in the future, have a look into Ocean Nomads!” – Nadiem

How It Started

I didn’t grow up near the ocean, but during the now +13 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 an alternative means of travel.  Since, I’ve boathitchhiked +30.000 miles of on a variety of sailing vessels in every ocean. I then got the captains papers so I can take others sailing and share what the magic is all about. Because I believe to get the ocean truly in your heart, you need to experience the ocean. With Ocean Nomads I aim to connect more of you to each other, the sea, and a more conscious way of life on and near the sea.
