Meridian Adventure SAIL prides itself on delivering a world-class experience for all its guests. This is achieved through regular drills and highly purposed accreditation, ensuring qualified crew not only have trusted navigational expertise of oceans but also firm knowledge of all adventure activities and best practices to ensure a safe and enjoyable trip.

We do this through the Meridian Adventure Academy

The best candidates are offered a contract with the Meridian Adventure Charter Fleet to operate our yachts in up to nine regions around the world.
