It seems like you are a passionate globetrotter! I'm sure you are always looking for unique trips and adventures 🌎 I might have something for you ;) Do you feel like an exciting sailing trip on a great sailboat along the Portuguese Algarve coast? Find the most beautiful places to surf, drop anchor in secluded bays and sleep out on deck under the stars! If you're lucky, you might even catch a fish and watch dolphins or whales. Guitars and ukulele are definitely on board! In addition, clean up the ocean a little bit on your trip and collect trash together with us. Don't worry - you don't have to know how to sail! Just bring along the desire for adventure and the passion for extraordinary journeys 🌏. However, long fingernails and make-up have no place on board with us - so better leave all the knick-knacks at home :) On board the 'Ohana', everyone helps out and lends a hand, just like in a real, small family. And if you feel like it, we'll teach you everything you need to know about sailing. It is our firm belief that it is the goosebump moments and encounters with other people that make travel special. That's why we want to make it possible for everyone to see the world with their own eyes. Sailing is probably the most beautiful means of transportation surrounded by the wonderful nature. But above all, we pay attention to our ecological footprint when we travel. 👣 We use the wind to get around, the salt water to make our own water and use solar energy for our electricity. On board our own boat, we live completely self-sufficiently and in harmony with nature. For us Oceanlover it is infinitely important not only to keep the sea clean on our travels, but also to make it even cleaner. 🌊 On our adventure trip you can connect with like-minded globetrotters and share your experiences and learn something from the others while traveling! 🚀 WHERE DO WE SAIL?🗺️ The Algarve is the beautiful southern coast of Portugal. It is a region of stunning beaches, high cliffs, sea caves, gorgeous bays, sandy islands, picturesque fishing villages and a wonderful climate. Surrounded on two sides by the Atlantic Ocean, it is a surfer's paradise and offers some of the best surfing in Europe, with great waves to learn to surf. OUR BOAT:⛵ We are cruising with our own catamaran (Lagoon 380). This boat offers plenty of space for eight people with 4 spacious cabins each, a salon with kitchen, sofa and stereo. The Algarve coast is a very relaxed sailing area, there are no big waves, so it also rocks very little, so you don't have to worry about seasickness :-) 🏄♂️🏄♀️ The trip includes surf lessons on two to three days (depending on the weather) at a local surf school (3 hours each). For fun besides sailing we also bring 2 stand-up paddle boards, snorkel sets and a projector for beach cinema. And if the waves are not good, we just go longboarding (skateboarding) on the beach, what do you think? We definitely have a few boards with us too! THE CREW: I'm the skipper, Ben. With a buddy I sailed around the world for about 5 years. On our trip we experienced a lot, met great people and made a lot of music (we are musicians and studied sound engineers). We filmed the whole thing and our travel documentary "Blown Away" was shown in many German cinemas in 2019. More on www.blownaway-movie.de And I'm Elena. Once on board a boat and I never left the sea. Together with Ben, I now live on our beautiful catamaran in the most beautiful place in the world in southern Portugal. "Life is too short for sometime" - I just love to live crazy, free and different and to follow a path that fulfills you. For 3 years now I work with social media and capture our different life on photos and videos. www.instagram.com/elenamarisa_ So, be part of it! Together we will explore the beautiful Algarve coast, sail, surf, swim, dive, fish 🐟 , do yoga 🧘♀, watch our new cinema documentary "Blown Away" in the outdoor boat cinema 🎬 , soak up the sun☀ , clean the ocean 🌊, chat and music, music, music🎼 And when we anchor we can make a campfire on the beach and grill our self caught fish! Ditch the car and sail right into the middle of the adventure. That's what it really means to get away from it all. Are you with us? 😊 Then send us a message in a bottle! :) We look forward to seeing you!
