We’re roughly male to female, although in recent years we’re seeing more ladies joining our crew and on certain trips, e.g.our Christmas Extravaganza, we try and ensure an even mix – it does tend to keep the banter light!Our range of expert-led adventures are ideal for solo divers, affording you not only the camaraderie of being with a group, but also benefitting from the knowledge and experience of our carefully chosen experts.Budding underwater photographers are bound to enjoy our Wonders of Wakatobi adventure with marine biologist Dr Richard Smith.We do also accommodate couples, but they aren’t our main clientele.More than 90% of our guests travel solo and willing to throw themselves in with our other motley crew on arrival 🙂 People come with us because we offer an inclusive, comfortable environment of like-minded people, sailing beautiful, powerful boats in turquoise water and a warm wind.
All of our sailing trips are suitable for singles and solo travellers, and it’s important to note that it’s a shared adventure rather than a dating service….although who knows, you might just meet someone who ignites a spark!
Maybe you’ve sailed when you were younger, or have taken a sailing course a while ago but not put it to much use since.
Our trips help to bring back those buried skills and memories and help develop new ones.
In the Philippines and some parts of Indonesia, the diving is not only world-class, but the accommodation is cheap, so travelling alone still need not break the bank even if single supplements apply.
Liveaboards are well-suited to solo travellers and generally will be happy to waive single supplements if you are happy to share a cabin with another guest.
