We are always on the water and at Sea, however, at this stage we do not yet have enough assignments to keep busy non stop.
To make up for the time we want to give people an experience of WHY it is we care so deeply about the Oceans as we do and take you for a trip aboard SY Independence and share with you the impressions that make us care!
We will be cruising the Mediterranean sea all summer long and welcome up to 4 visitors at a time (in 2 double cabins) on board! If you are interested please get in touch!

Just as a hint if you are interested, consider supporting us on Patreon, all our Patrons are in a constant raffle for free spots to join us aboard!

Join as a Researcher

Do you have a Project in mind you would like to conduct at Sea? Do you really need a big Research ship or could all the work and/or Data collection be done from aboard a 13 meter Sailing Boat on a much smaller footprint?
If you can answer these questions with yes, please do get in Touch with you, since we want to offer our SY Independence to enthusiastic people who care about the Oceans and their inhabitants!
The only associated costs are a share of constant running costs and a pocket money for everything we need on board. Please send us an E-Mail for any inquiries and don't hesitate to ask questions!

Current Schedule - only confirmed or reserved trips shown

With a new Mediterranean Sailing Season on the Horizon we slowly start our planning phase of the when and where.
The rough idea is to start in Datca - Turkey by the End of March and slowly work our way up to the northern Adriatic with a good look around the Greek Islands and also the Turkish Coastline, as well as the Croatian islands along the way.
However for the exact schedule we are not yet set, which means we are open for suggestions, wishes etc.
So if YOU want to come along for (part of) the trip please get in touch! All costs aboard will be shared amongst everyone on board and our supporters from Patreon always get preference (sorry everyone else, but it is easy to sign up right away) With those supporters we can cover the costs for Researchers who might want to join along the way as well!
