WHO WE ARE

Introducing the company and the crew

We are an independent expedition sailing operator, incorporated as a limited company in Oslo, Norway (BRREG, No. 956449060). Our yacht sails under the Norwegian flag.

Vision:

We strive to contribute to an integrated understanding and awareness of our planet, with a perspective from the sea. To achieve this, we want to be a preferred partner for schools, NGOs and research institutions and we plan to carry out and participate in research, documentation and educational projects and offer sustainable and custom-tailored yachting tourism.

Mission:

To create a platform for private and public expeditions in remote areas of the seas with a focus on sustainability, the environment and scientific topics of interest. We want to organise expeditions for education, conservation, documentation and research. These findings will be disseminated through school projects, public talks, multimedia- and written publications.
