EXPLORE | EXPERIENCE | ENJOY
SeaWind Adventures offers active sailing trips to the most extraordinary and often remote places in the world. We like sailing between deserted islands and make our way through narrow, glacier-carved fjords. We head to the polar regions, make a warming stopover on a volcanic island and take the time to enjoy the peace and space at sea.
People who sail with us experienced how unique it is for a small group (no more than 6 persons) sailing through areas where you often can only come by ship. We make sure that everyone feels safe and quickly at home on board. As a guest you may help with raising and lowering sails, steer and moor. Meanwhile, you can enjoy the luxury and comfort on board. The atmosphere is informal but professional.
Sail with us! For the world has to offer countless scenic spots that we like to show you. In recent years we sailed from Svalbard to Antarctica – via ‘laid back’ Cabo Verde, the remote archipelago of Fernando de Noronha and across the mysterious Patagonia.
But also the thousands of Swedish and Finnish islands, the trio Jersey, Guernsey & Alderney, and the sunny Azores have stolen our hearts.
What we mean by: Explore, Experience, Enjoy!
Explore, experience and enjoy is the motto of our sailing trips. Because traveling is more to us than vacation. Traveling is to explore, to find cliffs, open seas and distant islands. Discover what it does to you when a killer whale suddenly you look straight in the eye, or an albatross swoop is right ahead.
Traveling is experience how glaciers creep from the mountains painfully slow towards the sea and how a group of dolphins swims for hours with you. Experience how satisfied you feel – after a few days at sea – to sail the ship into a tiny harbor. And how nice it is for 1 or 2 days later to cast off the ropes and leave the civilized world behind you.
Traveling is feeling how great it is being outdoors all day, with the sun on your head and the wind in your hair. Enjoying conversations with people you met only a few days ago, a – temporary – life without wifi, moving without haste, with a covered table and a comfortable cabin within reach.
Explore, experience and enjoy: three elements that you’ll find in each of our sailing trips.
What drives us?
After all these nautical miles is one thing we now clear: the world is beautiful, but incredibly vulnerable. The impact of us as human beings is huge. That could be a reason not to travel. But just to experience how impressive the earth is and how much you can do (or rather leave) to maintain it, we hope to achieve that we all together will provide a little better for this impressive nature.
Therefore, we make maximum use of the wind to get from one to place to another (instead of burning liters of diesel), we will respect the nature and keep proper distance from animals (instead of disturbing them in their habitat).
We use for our tours conscious purchasing and try to put as much as possible sustainable and organic products on the table. That’s why you’ll eat vegetarian meals with us, or locally caught fish. And if possible, we’d serve a local organic wine with it.
Taking good care for the world, taking good care for you
At SeaWind Adventures, we not only take good care for the world, but also for you. You can completely surrender to the relaxing life on board. No rushes from one place to another, no stress or hurry. There is plenty of time to photograph the (sea)animal life, take a walk along the coast or in the mountains, or to learn the ins-and-outs of sailing at sea. You like to do nothing all afternoon? That, too, is on the program!
