Wadden Sea, North Sea, Markermeer, Ijsselmeer, or Het IJ

Let’s unite & organize an expedition together

Expedition member


Being confronted with the plastic pollution that threatens our oceans while enjoying the beauty of the sea, made an unforgettable impression. This experience makes you want to act.

Organize a group expedition together

With our expeditions we show our expeditionmembers the beauty of the waters and at the same time confront them through (citizen) scientific research directly with the plastic waste that threatens them.

A sailing boat is the perfect place to work together, encounter true nature, and experience a beautiful adventure. This provides the perfect circumstances for an important ecological message about plastic pollution.  Additionally, you are helping us to spread our message and add to our research!

Are you organizing a sailing trip and do you want to increase the positive impact of your sailing journey? Add a plastic-component to your on board program. Out at sea is where blurred minds are cleared and hearts start pounding faster with excitement over our beautiful planet. And the need to preserve it.

Experienced crew

Our dedicated marine biologists and expedition leaders have years of experience leading research programs and expeditions on board a variety of sailing ships. Our team with strong communication skills are professionals and able to serve any audience.

Don’t wait – the time to tackle the plastic problem is now!

Sailing our seas and looking for a valuable and life-changing addition to your on board program? Let us train your crew for lasting impact on your journeys!

We will sail again as soon as possible! 

You can help us with that and  organise a group of friends or collegues.
