OUR MISSION

Our planet is covered in more than 71% with oceans and smaller seas and all this water makes up for 90% of our total biosphere.

We strive to contribute to more awareness these waters and their peoples. It is our aim to work as a team, while each of us  has their own focus area to explore and share about.

Moreover, we accommodate young journalists to offer them experience and travel, as it can be difficult to come by while young.

Expedition Fearless Too will be a learning experience for all sailors who choose to join our exploration, virtually or in real-life.  and maybe for you too.

  • Are we, as a people, aware of the importance of the sea and of the state that it is in?
  • Who are the people that depend on the sea?

  • What are their stories about living with the ocean?
  • What can we learn from them?
  • In what way can we improve connection to all this water?
