Pangaea offers adventure sailing, global exploration, and science on SV Sea Dragon, our 72ft ex-Global Challenge sailing yacht.

Between expeditions, Sea Dragon sails the world with our guest crews on voyages of adventure and discovery. Depending on the voyage, our crew can gain offshore miles, learn celestial navigation, experience tropical islands, or delve deeper into our scientific work, testing the world’s oceans and seas for pollutants and micro-plastics. Data collected with our partners is recorded and shared with academic institutions around the world. Our guest crews are a key part of both sailing Sea Dragon and taking part in our scientific activities.

We can provide a complete program suitable for experienced sailors, scientists or novices alike. About 80% of our guests have never been on a sailboat before, let alone completed an ocean crossing. Anyone can go sailing, and anyone can comb their local beaches for indicators of ocean health, but with our partner organizations, Pangaea brings these things together in a way that provides adventure, exploration, and science globally. So take a look at our upcoming trips and join us to make a difference in both your own life and the health of our oceans and seas in a meaningful and lasting way.
