1 Month ALONE On A Deserted Island (NO OTHER HUMANS) 🏝️ Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 444

Enter to win a piece of Delos History! http://svdelos.com/newsletter

The life of a sailor is often marked by periods of solitude…but THIS is something else completely. We’re anchored at an uninhabited island in the Tuamotus of French Polynesia. And we’re the ONLY boat here. We weren’t really sure how long we would stay for…maybe a few days if a good weather window came to keep pushing east against the trades…but days turned into weeks, and before we knew it an entire month flew by without spotting another human. It’s been YEARS since we’ve been this isolated…what would it be like to be this alone for an entire month? Would we go stir crazy? How would we stay entertained? Join us in this week’s new episode and find out!

I’m Still In Love With This Sailor Girl ⛵️ 💃 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 443

10+ years into this journey together and I’m even more in love with this sailor girl than ever 🫶 For those of you that have watched our older videos, this one is a little throwback to ep. 46 (just a casual 400 episodes ago 😂 ). Like our time in the Philipines, our stay in Tahanea stands out as a chapter of our journey where we were just so content, so in love, and totally at peace. We really settled into the groove of simple living. But the cyclone season was creeping its way towards us, and we finally got a good weather window to start making some miles east against the tradewinds, so we pulled the hook and set off back towards Raroia (that’s where raced Colin to in previous episodes, saw the KonTiki monument, went crab hunting, swam with mantas…so yeah that made saying goodbye to Tahanea a bit easier 😂 )

When we went back and rewatched that episode, we were so struck at how there have always been a few constants in our life (especially, each other) despite the nature of our lifestyle which is full of change and unknowns. I think that’s one of the things that has allowed us to do what we do for so long…it’s exciting to live everyday not knowing what’s going to happen, but certain aspects of that can be a little draining too. So having each other through all the ups and downs just takes away so many of the question marks and creates security and stability which is so important. We hope you enjoy this episode, and we are sending you all WARM sunshine vibes and lots of hugs!

Day 5,246 of Sailing Around The World (A Video Diary) ⛵️ Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 442

This week’s video rates 10/10 for chill factor and good vibes 😎 We find ourselves in a small, uninhabited atoll in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia…one of the most truly incredible places we’ve ever had the pleasure of dropping our anchor. In our line of living, breathtaking natural beauty is something we’re almost constantly surrounded by. But man, was this place special. Before I sold everything and traded a life of answering emails for sailing, I used to think sailing would be an epic journey. That every day would be an insane adventure. Which it kind of is….but in some ways, it’s also just… living. Not every day is a life or death battle with a squall, spotting land after weeks at sea, or swimming with a baby humpback whale. Some days, we just exist. And today is one of those days. So in this episode, we’re gonna slow things down a bit, and give you the raw and real version of what a day in the life really looks like for us. And today, we invite you to grab a cold one, kick back, and come along for the ride 🏝️

Mastering OFF-GRID Living: 4 Key Things Every Sailor Should Know ⛵️ Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 441

In this video we’re breaking down the systems and technologies we’ve built up over the course of 14 years of full time sailing and living aboard our boat off grid. We will be covering 4 essential pieces of the puzzle that allow us not only to survive out here, but to live our lives comfortably! We will discuss electricity, how we make it, and what our set up is. We will talk about food: how we plan and figure out what we need, and how we store it. We will share how we’re able to turn saltwater into drinkable freshwater, and lastly, how we’re able to get the connectivity we need to stay safe, run our business, and entertain ourselves!

JUST BLOOPERS! 30 Minutes of Ridiculousness 🤣 Sailing Vessel Delos

Get ready for some hilarity on the high seas! Instead of our normal episode today, we’ve got something a little different that we hope you will LOVE 💕 We put together a compilation of some of our silliest moments from the last couple seasons, featuring cameos from Hannah, Conor, Jordan, Taylor, Super Ryan, Mormor, and more! And just wait till you see how little Sierra is in some of these clips 🥹. We did our best to find our favorite moments, but tell us…which ones did we forget??? Let us know in the comments. I’ve already thought of some other ones even since we finished uploading this one (just now I was thinking about when I ripped my pants on a hike and my “coconuts” were popping completely out of the rip in my crotch 😂). We really hope you enjoy this one, it was SO FUN putting together.

Mistakes Were Made….Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 440

It’s been a looong time since we made a mistake like this 🙈 Boat life always keeps you on your toes, and after more than a decade of living full time on our sail boat, we like to think we’ve learned a thing or two…but the ocean has a fantastic sense of humor, and mishaps are bound to arise no matter how much you prepare or think you know what you’re doing. And honestly in this case we kiiiinda had this one coming for us 😂 This week’s episode will have you on a bit of a rollercoaster with us, as it’s full of ups and downs including our big mistake, a super gnarly squall, bommie dodging, one of our coolest manta encounters ever, a life changing discovery involving coconuts, some chocolate cake, and lots more!

Family Preps For Off Grid Adventure! 🫡 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 439

Cyclone season is fast approaching, and it’s time to get out of dodge! We need to go against the trade winds and start making our way back towards the safe haven of the Marquesas Islands of French Polynesia. But we plan to take our time doing it, and we will spend the next months exploring some of the most remote corners of the earth as we make our way east. Going off grid is exciting but it’s also full of its challenges, and that means we need to be prepared. So this week’s episode is all about how we do just that…what does it really take to prepare our boat and ourselves to spend months away from civilization. As stressful as it can be getting everything ready, it’s also one of our favorite times on the boat…that moment when the boat is stocked, and you’re about to embark into months in the unknown where anything is possible. It’s a true feeling of freedom, and it’s moments like these that keep us chasing new horizons and destinations after all these years.

Is Sailing Lonely??? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 438

We’re ready to roll again with this week’s episode, which is slightly different from our usual style. It’s still full of adventure and shenanigans, but we also wanted to have a real talk about a topic that we think is super important in our lives, and something that hopeful cruisers might be able to gain some insight from. Humans are social creatures, and the sailing lifestyle presents a lot of challenges to having a healthy and fulfilling personal life. When you’re constantly on the move and away from family, it can become hard to have a real sense of community. BUT we also have the ability to meet likeminded people who are also looking for connection in a way that isn’t as common on land. So join us as we explore some of these issues, and let us know what other questions you have about this kind of stuff in the comments below. AND let us know if you like this kind of episode!

BROKEN (again)…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 437

Behind the scenes of boat bliss: This is the work that keeps paradise afloat! Traveling around the world by sail has allowed our family to experience moments that can only be described as downright magical. But these moments haven’t come easy over the years, and when it comes to boat life, you gotta pay to play. Keeping our floating home in ship shape is no small task, and something seems to break almost every day. But luckily our ever growing to do list wouldn’t be the only thing we’d be diving into…and when your backyard looks like this, it makes all the blood sweat and tears worthwhile.

What We Found Under Our Boat 🤯 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 436

Dayummmm this place is sooo freaking crazy! It’s definitely been one of our favorite destinations (and we’ve been to some prettttty cool places I gotta say). It’s got the perfect mix of beauty, protected and calm anchorages, wild and rugged but still has easy access to shops and a few creature comforts…and as you will see in this week’s episode, there is a whole world below our keel which is full of surprises that we can’t wait to share with you (Prepare to have your breath taken away 🤯 )

Also, in this week’s episode Sierra goes to summer camp! We didn’t film any of the camp itself, but ohhh man she absolutely LOVED IT! And for us it was a rare treat to have some adult time (which we spend diving and adventurizing of course) and enjoy some of the stuff that’s a little more difficult to do with a 4 year old in the mix. She very rarely spends time away from us (unless she’s with Mormor 💕) so we were so proud of how good she did getting out in the big world without us and making new friends!

Nothing Lasts Forever…Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 435

The only constant in a sailor’s life is change, and after months exploring some of the most wild and remote gems of the South Pacific, it was finally time to switch things up a bit. We’re about to trade isolation for big city livin’ on French Polynesia’s largest and most iconic island, Tahiti. But mother nature has some other plans for us, and the playgrounds and juicy cheeseburgers we’d been dreaming of would have to wait when we get hit by some crazy weather.

We also celebrate Sierra’s 4th birthday, and ohhhh my goodness there is a lot of cuteness to unpack in this one 🥹 Where has the time gone?! Can’t believe what a kind, intelligent, resilient, funny, and sweet little human she is becoming, and we are so stinking proud of her every single day. We celebrate her birthday with some whale watching (a little too close for comfort for Kazza at one point even 😂 ) and a beach day & cake with friends. I can’t wait to see where in the world we will celebrate her 5th birthday!

Would You Swim Here!?! (NOT What We Expected 😱) Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 434

We Were SHOCKED (But We Couldn’t Stop Laughing 🤣) This week’s episode will have you giggling for sure. Join us in our next tropical paradise, the incomparable island of Mo’orea in French Polynesia’s world famous Society Islands (think Tahiti, Bora Bora 🤤 ) We planned to visit a spot that’s known for its more than healthy population of sting rays and sharks. We envisioned a majestic, cinematic moment with these beautiful animals, but what we got was something sliiiiightly different…Check out this weeks latest episode and find out what we got instead 😂

Are We Rich??? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 433

Could this strange, waxy, poo like substance be our ticket to riches?!? While strolling along on the beach Sierra found this very odd looking little blob that we thought could possibly be (FINGERS CROSSED 🤞) veryyyy rare and INCREDIBLY valuable. We don’t wanna give any spoilers here….so all I will say is this…please let us know what you think about all of this in the comments, help us solve this mystery!!!

French Polynesia’s SEXY SECRET 🤐 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 432

Chat with the crew, watch early releases, access exclusive & ad free content at http://patreon.com/svdelos

Once a year on the full moon between June and July, the crystal clear waters here become home to one of the rarest marine events in the entire world, a mass spawning where tens of thousands of grouper get frisky all at the same time (or as I so eloquently put it in the video, a giant fish orgy 😂 ). We’ve sailed to Fakarava in French Polynesia, one of the most remote atolls on earth to try and experience it firsthand. But we won’t be the only ones crashing the party. Hundreds of sharks will share the waters with us as we battle currents, huge waves, and squalls in hopes of witnessing the main event. But the whole thing is totally at the mercy of tens of thousands of wild animals running on instinct, and when the big night finally approaches, we have no idea what to expect.

We Live ALONE On An Island You’ve Never Heard Of 👀 Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 431

If you’ve had a stressful week and need to unwind, we’ve got just the thing for ya…this week’s episode is nothing but pure, jaw droppingly beautiful, magic moments in a place that looks like an illustration in a kids book if you imagined a perfect island paradise. Seriously, this place is so unbelievable, rewatching this video gave us all the feels 🥰 The ups and downs are all special in their own ways and its the richness of the entire experience that has made this journey so meaningful for us….but damn it’s days like these that we will look back on when we’re older and think, man we really lived and we are SO INCREDIBLY lucky not only to be able to experience this ourselves, but to share such a unique way of seeing the world with Sierra. We are so grateful for all of it, and in case we don’t say it enough, it’s all thanks to you guys 🫶 We hope this video brings some smiles and good vibes to your day!

Our Fridges Are Empty, Time to HUNT! Catch & Cook On Uninhabited Island 🦀 S.V. Delos Ep. 430

Traveling off the grid by boat through some of the wildest reaches of the earth means that sometimes luxuries like a perfectly plump tomato are beyond our reach. And here in the Tuamotu Islands of French Polynesia you can’t exactly hop into the car and head to the store to pick up a few snacks. But it’s a small price to pay for what we gain in return, and luckily there is an abundant food supply of huuuuuge crabs all over the island. So we grab a bucket, a hard hat, and a big machete (YES our techniques are a bit unconventional 😂 ) and we set off on the HUNT!

 

With our fridges and our bellies full, we pull the hook and head off to another anchorage with some truly unbelievable history. This is the site where the Kon-Tiki Expedition made landfall after 101 days drifting across the Pacific Ocean on a balsa wood raft. We learn all about the fascinating story (seriously, this is an UNBELIEVABLE tale) and see firsthand where they crashed through the reef right here in Raroia.

So Freaking Gnarly Out Here 🤯 WTF Were We Thinking?? Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 429

It’s been a while since we got ROCKED like this 😳 After setting off on a 3 day open ocean race against our rivals Parlay Revival, we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into. The camera just doesn’t do it justice, but it was SO gnarly out…days like these make us question why we do this, (and wish we were snoozing away all cozy in a non-moving bed somewhere 😂 ) . But we press on towards the finish line we are faced with our next big challenge…. an absolute MINEFIELD of uncharted bommies that litter the inside of the lagoon. And of course we finally answer the question that everyone’s been waiting for….WHO WON THE RACE????

3-Day OPEN OCEAN Race (It Gets ROUGH 😱) Part 1… Sailing Vessel Delos Ep. 428

The race is on, and things get WET and WILD out there! Our intentions were innocent enough…to have a friendly race against our buddy/rival Colin on Parlay Revival. But mix in our competitive spirit, some SUPER rough conditions, and some battles with proper sea monsters, and we find ourselves pushing the limits out there as we go head to head in the longest race we’ve ever done on Delos. We have 3 grueling days of sailing ahead of us as we make the voyage from the Marquesas Islands to the Tuamotu Islands in French Polynesia, one of the most remote and beautiful destinations in the entire world. Join us in this week’s episode for part 1 of our epic battle!

 

You can find all the camera gear we use, our must have cruising essentials, tools, recommended reading, safety gear, and more at our amazon storefront!
