Year 3

We begin Year 3 getting as far away from the problems of the modern world as possible, and return to the island of adventure- MADAGASCAR, where some of the strangest flora and fauna on Earth calls home and importantly for us- where some of the Earth's most reliable tradewinds blow steadily and strong. After exploring the North of the island we'll return to a place we visited in 2010 to shred one of the best lefts in the world down south, then round the Cape of Good Hope and sail a long 4,500 miles to the Cabo Verdes, a mystical place filled with vivid colors, friendly people, perfect waves, reliably strong wind and some of our best memories from the Best Odyssey expedition back in 2011.PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 is being monitored and this schedule will be updated frequently.

Year 2

Year 2 represents vividly why we are in this business. We begin in the French and strongly Creole archipelago of the Seychelles, a haven for wildlife including the Giant tortoise, found only here and the Galapagos (46% of the country is protected, including a huge chunk of the ocean). The outer islands of the Seychelles are mostly uninhabited, and off limits to most travelers...unless you have a vessel like Discovery! Then we sail south to Northern Madagascar where some of the strangest flora and fauna on Earth calls home and importantly for us- some of the Earth's most reliable tradewinds blow steadily and strong. Then back across the Mozambique channel to visit the Quirimbas Archipelago in Mozambique (via Mayotte!), which is the definition of wild and untamed. Then back across to Madagascar to shred one of the best lefts on Earth, visit the Baobabs and lemurs and towns lighted with Kerosene, then we'll finish in the Bazaruto archipelago, one of the prettiest places we've ever visited, and we'll be there right during the Humpback migration, a sight to behold! PLEASE NOTE: Due to Covid-19 Year 2 from May, 2020 onwards has been cancelled and rescheduled for Year 3.

Year 1

Here we go! Our third expedition into the unknown! For the first year of the Quest we will begin near Sulawesi, Indonesia, plying the wicked waters around Wakatobi. Unspoiled, remote, crystal-clear water, world-class diving, reliable wind, and zero, zero crowds. From Sulawesi we'll head southwest and anchor up for a month and a half in Sumbawa for their prime wind and wave season at one of the greatest lefts on Earth to kite. Then we'll head back north across the equator and spend the winter in the Maldives, one of the prettiest atoll archipelagoes on the planet and one that is seriously threatened with sea level rise. Waves, manta rays, whalesharks...did we mention waves?
