Who we are



To create hope & balance for future generations by connecting people to the seas through informative sailing trips.



We seek to show our guests the beauty and realities of our natural water world for the sake of all life on our planet.  We set sail whenever there is good wind conditions, and stand by the highest level of quality, safety and environmental sustainability.  Our food is local & organic as much possible and our meals are lovingly prepared from scratch.

Sachi Maekawa

Operations Manager, Owner

Sachi has a degree in International Business Management.  She worked in the corporate world for 15 years, far removed from the outdoors but felt a longing to be at sea.  Over time, this longing became stronger, so she joined many environmental organizations, studied whales, became a divemaster, a freediver, and is a certified ships crew.  She loves being in and on the water and has a passion for marine conservation.

Kenneth Tårnes

Sea Captain, Owner

Kenneth is a world class Sea Captain, the highest international designation by SOLAS, for over 25 consecutive years. The breadth of his experience at sea aboard various types of ships in the Norwegian coast and world wide is astounding.  He holds the world record for sailing a (42ft) sailboat from Tromsø to Kristiansand (963 nautical miles) done in 5 days 28 minutes.  Sailing is one of his favorite things to do.  He has a profound passion for bringing peace to the seas and all life on this beautiful planet.
