Sailing is the ultimate freedom
It allows you to travel wherever you want, using only the wind.
Spending time on a sailboat broadens your perspective,
connects you to your wild selve
and attunes you to the rhythm of mother nature.
It also challenges your biggest fears,
requires empathy and cooperation
and teaches you discipline, presence and self-reliance.
to us, it is the perfect place to step out of the comfort zone of everyday life
and explore new horizons. or how we call it: to sea beyond

learning to See life through the eyes of the ocean
Sea Beyond is a floating school for self-development. We believe that spending time on the ocean teaches us a set of values, that help us to navigate through life with more passion, presence, self-reliance and light-heartedness. we call these values the OCEAN EYES - a way of seeing life through the eyes of the ocean.
Starting in July 2019, we will Start sailing up north until Fernando de Noronha (ca. 1500 nm). On this half-year journey, we will invite so-called ocean masters - skippers, fishers, divers, paddlers, mechanics, electricians, doctors, etc. - to join our crew and teach us the essence of what they have learned from living on the ocean.
During this time, mintaka will also turn into a kind of Art Residency, where FILMMAKERS, Photographers, DESIGNERS, MUSICIANS, PAINTERS, Writers, etc. are invited to spend time with us and help us capture the Ocean Eyes. The outcome will serve as the foundation of our floating school and help us FUND our NExt GREAT PIRATA ship.
while we are building our dream at sea, we also offer opportunities to work with us on land
“why fear is our best teacher”
”feeling alive is the new revolution”
”the ocean a school of life”
Are some of the topics, we like to talk about - to students, at conferences and in public events. our customized speeches combine personal experiences, thought-provoking stories and interactive exercices.
