We strongly believe that bringing people closer to the sea, is the most effective way to trigger individual action against the current threats challenging our oceans.
Atlantic Explorers’ team presents solid background training and sea experience that will keep you safe and confident enough to head for unknown seas. We also encourage our members to develop those special soft skills that make the difference under challenging conditions. No matter its size, a boat might seem never big enough during sea crossings.

So, you become part of the crew, either you aim for a first sailing baptism, to increase your nautical miles with an offshore sail, or improve your skills further because you feel your previous training failed to provide you with the experience you need to set sail autonomously or even amongst a flotilla in a paradisiac holiday destiny.Set sail with us
