Over the last couple of years we have been working hard to make our sailing and salty dreams come true. We also wanted to figure out some of the ways that we can do something for our Oceans to give back as we sail the West Australia Coast and take on other adventures
In May 2016, we departed on our first longer voyage on Lady C. We spent 8.5 months cruising the West Australian Coast.
We chose Citizen Science as a way to do something about a massive issue we care so much about – The Health of our Oceans.
We know the issues facing our Oceans, but it feels like the issues in our Oceans are easy to disconnect from. We can just go on with our surfing, sailing, diving and Salty life and pretend that everything is fine.
We don’t want to stick our heads in the sand, we want to do something!
This is what we believe:
If You Learn about A Place
Then You Will Care About A Place
Then You Can Fall In Love With A Place
If You Love A Place, Then You Will Protect it.
Below are some of the projects we have been doing and the results that we have found.
During our first voyage our main focus was Marine Debris.
In 2017 we took on a 280km kayak trip to look into the Health of the Ningaloo Reef. – Its called A Salty Voyage Ningaloo Reef.
We are busy making a film about this adventure and You Tube series to follow.
In our daily lives we have been working on reducing and keeping our footprint on the planet as light as possible.
You can learn a bit more about how we keep our boat and lifestyle Eco Friendly.

Find out more about our Marine Debris Surveys from our 2016 Sailing Voyage.
36 surveys, 3 marine debris hot spots identified, and key observations on Marine Debris along the West Australian Coast!
Observations on marine life from our time at sea.
Find out more here. ( will be updated soon!)
Phytoplankton is responsible for absorbing carbon from our atmosphere. It provides us with every second breath we breathe! We have been taking measurements to add it to a global database on phytoplankton research

How healthy are our Reefs?
We work with Reef Check Australia and help monitor the health of our reefs!

We love sharing our passion for the Ocean with other.
We love telling stories about our adventures out at Sea!
We share how others can get involved in Citizen Science and why our Ocean needs more warriors!
