Day 1 - Saturday 2nd March - Arrival and greeting

Your journey starts in Male. You will join on Monday afternoon where you will be welcomed aboard the yacht.

After meeting your fellow crew and the skipper and settling into the yacht, we will run a safety briefing and start prepping for the adventure ahead!

We will stay overnight on board and may eat ashore


Day 2 - Sunday - All prepared

After a relaxing nights sleep and breakfast on board, we will ensure we are fully prepped and ready to go - aiming to slip lines in the afternoon, or the following morning and head for the open ocean.


Day 3 - Monday

Finally, today we slip lines and sail gracefully out of the marina and into the open ocean. The next 10 days will be spent cruising our way North towards Mumbai

You will be fully involved in life aboard - preparing meals for the crew, sailing at night and keeping track of progress - all part of a fully 'hands-on' expedition crew.

You may spot, whales, turtles or many other marine diversity on the journey and will surely have time to relax, enjoy the endless Ocean and talk to your crew.

We may also stop along the way, visiting some of the magical islands of the Arabian sea.


Day 13/14 - Saturday

Arriving in Mumbai is a wonderful experience - the hustle and bustle of the city is a huge contrast to the open Ocean we've crossed until now.

Our last night will be spent in the comfort of this club - a beautiful and relaxing end to an incredible adventure.
