Embark on Tánana means to become a full member of the crew. 

Don't worry, you don't need to have a long sailing experience.

Life on boat is also living together means sharing space.

You will participate in maneuvers, keepwatches (under the guidance of the professional crew) and life on board.

We will share this adventure and our passion for the Deep South with you!

Everything will be done to ensure that the cruise goes well, to respect the program and to be on time, but it must be kept in mind that we will navigate in areas where nature is queen and the wind sometimes capricious. The itinerary proposed in the day by day is therefore purely indicative, it will be necessary to accept any change.
