Overview
We only take 10 guests and offer a unique personal experience with 20 years taking guests on our beautiful live-aboard yacht and we still love it!! We share our passion for what we do and love meeting people from all over the world and sharing stories from our travels and lifestyle. We have sailed to many countries on many different boats, so come along and hear the tales of adventures far and wide. We raised our son on the boat while sailing from the Caribbean and throughout the South Pacific and New Zealand for many years.

Great day sailing out of Russell with hosts Robin and Rick. They have a lifetime sailing all around the world with many tales to tell of their adventures,so you know you are in safe hands. Plenty of time for a swim and delicious vegetarian lunch. Highly recommended
