Thanks for your support!
As you know by now, Sabali Expeditions is a threefold initiative aiming at sailing across the planet promoting a slow and low-consumption lifestyle, whilst carrying scientific research expeditions and documenting the great work achieved by so many communities around the world to protect the marine environment.
But we would not be able to carry the work without the great community supporting us throughout this adventure! You can join our community in many different ways and before you go, take a few moments to scroll through this section and see what part you could play in the adventure!
Join the Community
If you want to know more about our sailing and research adventures, make sure to subscribe to our Youtube channel and our social media. In the upcoming months, watch us refitting our boat, learning how to sail and slowly adapting to our new way of living. You will soon be able to discover our encounters around the world and learn more about marine preservation initiatives through interviews and portraits of the ocean heroes we will meet.
Our expeditions will take us to remote places and it will sometimes be impossible for us to post our weekly updates, but worry not, we will return shortly afterwards with tons of stories to share.
Joining our community is also the best way to just reach out and have a nice chat with us should you have any question or advice!
Become our partner
Sabali is not only the perfect platform to launch short-term expeditions but also to establish long-term partnerships with ocean research labs and institutes. It is easier, cheaper and more sustainable to charter a sailboat rather than a fuel-thirsty trawler. Sabali also allows more flexibility as she reaches both off-shore and coastal waters making her virtually a “go-everywhere” research vessel.
If your research requires data from a region that we are currently exploring, we will be happy to help you out. Moreover, Sabali is equipped to welcome you and your gear aboard for a few days or weeks at sea. If you want to apply for a partnership with us, send us a brief explanation of your research project and highlight how we can support you. We will get back to you shortly afterwards.
Join a mission
The idea of joining an expedition awakens your adventurous and nature-loving instincts? Perfect! It is time for you to reach the next level and get involved in one of our citizen science projects. We can welcome up to four people aboard for short missions of three to seven days. Throughout the trip, you will be directly involved in Sabali’s day-to-day life and will learn the basics of navigation, data collection, and marine environment observation. No technical knowledge is required. You just need to be dynamic, curious and… able to swim 50 meters.
While some programs can be carried out only in specific locations, others can take place anywhere. Check out our expeditions section to find out which programs are currently available, and contact us to enroll. The oceans are waiting for you!
Maintaining a healthy boat, investing in reliable data collection devices, renewing communication materials that are frequently roughened up by the sea: all of this comes at a salty price and involves a lot of work. We want to keep producing impactful research and quality content without compromising our crew's security.
A sailboat needs constant and costly maintenance to withstand the elements. Also, a single expedition takes months of preparation, from its logistical set-up to the actual data or sample collection process. Finally, a single video takes dozen of hours of filming and editing to uphold to good quality standards. At Sabali Expeditions, we think you deserve no less but we also need your help!
