Trips values and expectations
About the Ocean Nomads Events & Expeditions
Ocean Nomads events and expeditions connect people to each other and to the ocean. Nothing brings people together like actually bringing people together. And nothing inspires us more than real experience. We provide ocean adventure and encourage low-impact travel. We add nature and adventure into the mix, with our recipe for creating a big dose of positive energy and accelerating change for a common good.
The goal of ON Events & Expeditions is to connect you with the natural world, to build relationships with other impact-driven salty souls, and to facilitate knowledge-sharing to learn from each other. We share our dreams, journeys, and collaborate on projects for positive change. We live up to the Ocean Nomads slow sailing philosophy. We strive to have an onboard environment that inspires adventure and play, with a strong emphasis on health, simplicity, teamwork and local & environmental consciousness.
Vibe & Expectations
Each Event or Expedition has a different angle, destination or element – we send more detailed information tailored for each adventure. Here are the common elements:
ADVENTURE | Depending on the destination, the event includes action, outdoors, play and fun. Except for offshore events, our days include a mix of sailing, jumping in the sea, snorkelling, exploring islands, finding treasures, hiking, SUPping, while chatting and sustaining life. We try to avoid marinas, so we can be closer to nature, while keeping the trip as affordable as possible.
SPONTANEITY | We run our trips rather spontaneously on purpose. We’re dependent on the weather. We go with the flow, and we may change course to explore what we find on the way. We embrace the art of getting lost. We don’t plan out our routes. On purpose.
SAILING | You don’t need sailing experience. The Ocean Nomads skippers are professionally qualified and can teach you the basics, helping you become a competent crew member – or building upon any existing skills you do have. We can sign off miles and give you a reference if you need one. We take care of onboard duties as a group.
COSTS | Unless otherwise indicated we generally run our trips on base of trip contribution going towards boat rental and trip organization + sharing costs. Each boat shares the costs for fuel, moorings/marinas, and food. Depending on the trip and destination, this is between €100 – 150 per person/week. Per boat, the crew also takes care of feeding your skipper.
VESSELS | We rent boats, selecting our partners to give preference to local and sustainably-minded charter companies, this doesn’t always go hand in hand but we try our best. Boats may differ slightly in size/model but all are equipped with necessary safety equipment. We try our best to work with skippers running the boats with our shared values to minimize negative and maximize positive impacts.
