And frankly, you’re great, so why wouldn’t people want to be your pal? From bonding over sunset cocktails to forging friendships atop majestic volcanoes or during an evening of stargazing out at sea, you’ll quickly learn that a simple “Hi, how are you?” can lead to lifelong connections.

Go Your Own Way

It’s kind of our thing to make sure everyone gets to have the sailing trip of their dreams with us. Whether you want to lounge on a beach with a cocktail in hand for a week or get involved with every activity, you can go your own way when travelling solo.

You Are Capable

Solo travel will give you the time and the space to discover just how confident and capable you actually are. It’s normal to feel a bit scared sometimes, but it’s super important not to let any trace of apprehension stop you from doing the things you really want to do. And this new-found confidence will see you through countless important occasions in your life. Job interviews? No problem. Promotion opportunities? Easy. Exams? No sweat.
