Experience an unparalleled scuba diving and sailing adventure…

Discover island cultures – immerse in local customs

See the remote wilderness of the beautiful South Pacific Ocean
…All from the vantage point of our 36 meter sailing expedition vessel Infinity.
This is NOT your regular cruise. Infinity is a community based voyage for adventurous and active people of all ages and walks of life. If you enjoy sailing, love our living planet, and appreciate community and friendship then this is probably for you. We live an active lifestyle.

-beach clean-ups and sunbathing

-relaxing yoga and playing capoeira

-cooking and tasting delicious local food

-laughing and hanging out with newfound friends

 

Join Infinity in American Samoa for a journey along the beautiful reefs and lush mountains to Independent Samoa. Enjoy the Samoan way of life while having an opportunity to go diving, surfing, and sailing.

 

This is your chance to immerse in both of the Samoas and since we are sailing around several islands, you can truly soak up the scenery, coral, surf, and local vibe. Whether your calling is the reefs and tropical waters, or the fantastic hikes through the jungle mountains, or hanging out with the Samoans, you will not be disappointed.

 

Ashore you may want to listen to the local chorus in Sunday morning church or marvel at the abundant traditional tattoos, rich with artistry and technique. The patterns and shapes are bold, black, symbolic, and fitted to the curves of the body. The artists still make their own instrument to apply a traditional stick-poke tattoo. You can explore the beautiful diving, snorkeling, and wildlife. Scuba dive, freedive, and snorkel the beautiful reefs. The gorgeous waterfalls range in intensity from neck massage to powerful cascade – there is one for sliding down, another to bathe under. You can visit a giant swimming hole and the Piula cave pool, and see endless views of the bays. Walk among the trees at the Falealupo Canopy or through local markets with fruit, handmade wood carvings, colorful fabrics, and tasty fresh fish. Enjoy the surf at different breaks from beginner to expert on the islands of Upolu and Savaii. Ride the “Dragon’s Breath” wave, Pudding Rock, or ominously named “Devil’s Island” break.

 

You could spend a year on the islands and still wouldn’t have seen everything. To make the most of what both Samoas have to offer, we recommend giving yourself plenty of extra time outside of the voyage or combine trips we offer for a longer stay. We will have a wonderful journey filled with a wealth of unforgettable experiences, but we will not have enough time to do everything suggested above! If your heart is set on some specific activity, be sure to tell us about it so we can do our best to create the opportunity.

 

We leave the itinerary details up to our guests, while taking weather into account. Once you come aboard, everyone will meet to discuss possibilities. We are usually very active in a relaxed manner and we like to immerse in the wildlife and culture of the places visited without having to worry about a strict, regimented schedule. We’ll all talk about what everyone likes and tailor the journey accordingly. We usually end up with a lively itinerary, and include the best dive spots and nature sites of each area. Each island has its own personality and unique things to do.

Everyone works hard for almost free so you can have an incredible experience at the lowest cost anywhere (please reflect your appreciation with a tip!). To Infinity, these jobs are not jobs and these journeys are not trips: it’s a lifestyle.

Travelers reviews

Sonja Dixon 2014-05-10

I crewed on this yacht for eight awesome months. Clemens is an inspiring Captain who knows his ship and the ocean like the proverbial back of his hand. I was treated like family from the moment I stepped on board and look forward to returning to this yacht in the future.

Gyan Almira 2013-09-06

Do not miss … if you want to have an experience for life not miss this opportunity. The family is a unique and wonderful. My experience in this yacht for 11 months, there is no words to describe it, unforgettable. All four of them, a fter these 11 months are part of my life “for ever”. My family.

Chelsea Madden 2013-03-07

I spent 7 weeks upon this yacht in 2012, and it was absolutely amazing. Clemens (and family!) are all super friendly and easy-going, not to mention the boat itself is quite comfortable. I feel like they’ve set my standards quite high f or when I now look at other boats I might be interested in joining. I don’t doubt I’ll be back on this yacht at some point though :)

Georgina Manuel 2012-08-05

A great captain…and a great man…words cannot express my immense gratitude to him and his wonderful family…have a safe trip my friends…I hope I can sail soon again with you.
