Reviews

Some of our expedition crew members are kind enough to leave us a review. We hope they may give you some insight into life on board, our passion for sailing and our love for the Tecla.

 

Have you sailed with us before and would you like to leave us a review as well? Please send us an email! We would love to hear from you! 

The crew Gijs; Sam; Jet and Loes were sailors open to talk yet hard of work, they consistently work with a passion for the vessel they loved so much, this could even be seen by the comments written by previous attendees.They were hospitable and kind treating us often like little children with candies and chocolates, it helped a lot , as this raised moral and bonding chances. All said I’d recommend them for anyone with the money and a need of something real.  

An unforgettable week sailing the Tecla in Iceland.
We sailed around the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve and every day was a delight.
In the evening we anchored in beautiful places at the bottom of a new fjord and in the morning, coming up to the deck was always a surprise. Dreamy atmosphere, stunning landscapes, and every time something new to catch the eye, magic reflections on the water, seals, birds…
We went ashore for fantastic hikes which proved to be not only invigorating but also a new source of surprises as the arctic fox in its summer colours in the tiny Hesteyri.
On our way to Aedey Island everybody was on deck basking on the sun when someone shouted WHALES!!! And there they were, the amazing whales. Splashing, coming up and down, wagging their tails …
It has been such a fabulous week, sailing the beautiful Tecla and with its wonderful crew! We are looking forward to the next season!
A big hug for all!

Even better! Last year we were sailing the Hornstrandir fiords on Tecla, it was fantastic! This year our three-week voyage to Greenland has been even better. Awesome!!! We've been sailing through the ice, passing massive icebergs, seeing magnificent glaciers ... with the tranquillity of being guided by an experienced skipper and his great crew, in the company of a group of friendly and funny guest mates. Thank you for this wonderful time!

A fantastic trip! Of course, sometimes you look around/think about what your doing and wonder - "what the hell am I doing here?!", but it was a great feeling, to learn a completely different skill, to be thrown into a very different world, away from technology and the daily grind - I really enjoyed it!

It was such a privilege and a pleasure to sail with you all and to be on Tecla. I keep thinking about the amazing sailing and the beautiful places we visited. I especially loved exploring St Kilda and the awesome sail we had back from there, and being at anchor at Loch Scavaig with the mountains and the seals, and then the absolutely brilliant day tacking down the Sound of Mull and exploring Aros Castle. I’ll treasure those times for a long time to come. Thank you all for your wonderful company during the trip and for putting up with me getting under your feet on deck all the time (I was so excited to be sailing again that I wanted to haul on every line, but I’m sure some of them didn’t need hauling on at all…) I learned so much on the trip and I’m really inspired to try and do more sailing again now.
