The Ocean Nomads philosophy
We share and care for the Ocean Nomads ‘slow sailing’ philosophy. The focus is on simplicity, health, local food and community connection, active, adventure and sustainability mindset, walking the talk, and collaboration.
Ocean Nomads is a tribe of young (by heart:)) adventurous ocean lovers that are after an active outdoor ocean lifestyle. We share the fun, ideas & projects on low-budget, mindful, self-sufficient positive impact ways to live and travel sustainably at sea.
"It’s amazing how us all, people from different places, got along with each other so well. We’ve made definitely long lasting friendships. Thank you for bringing us together. – Marcin (Ocean Nomads Crew Lanzarote 2019)"
