Pangaea Explorations (Panex) – known across the marine conservation and scientic world for exceptional work in the ocean’s farthest corners – is opening up sailing expeditions for guest crew. This is a unique opportunity to go sailing, cross an ocean, and be a part of something bigger.

Panex is led by a distinctive crew with phenomenal experience and a passion for teaching and teamwork. Our team consists of Ocean Yacht Masters with decades of combined experience – single handed circumnavigations, dozens of ocean crossings, marine science research sailings and a string of amazing stories from places like Ascension, the rivers of South America, Africa, Iceland, and the Baltic. These are true “good people” that love the sea.

Our vessel Sea Dragon is one of the legendary Global Challenge expedition race boats with extraordinary capability at sea. At 72’ (22m) and 48 tons, she is a powerful sailing platform design rated to handle the world’s toughest conditions – the upwind Southern Ocean. She is impeccably maintained and constantly rated by the British Maritime and Coastal Authority at the highest standard of “Category Zero – All Oceans”. Her design strength and our relentless attention to detail make Sea Dragon unquestionably one of the most capable, safest and secure vessels at sea. We can sail the roughest waters of the world and bring the crew home safe and confident.

Building on our experience and legendary story, our team has created a unique calendar of Sailing Expedition trips open to guest crews. Exploring a range of exceptional routes in the Caribbean and the North Atlantic, our 2017 journeys center on real sailing experience for all levels. At just 6-10 days in length, these create fantastic opportunities to truly “go to sea.”
