Rubicon 3 expeditions sail to the world's most exciting, remote and spectacular places. You can sail to and explore Cuba, Spitsbergen, Belize, Iceland and more. Some routes are simple day sailing and exploration ashore, while others involve a full ocean crossing. Most of the routes require no previous experience. There is a full sailing course built into each one and plenty of time to head ashore and explore these amazing countries. Come and have the adventure of a lifetime.
Come and sail to some of the world's most amazing places such as Cuba, Spitsbergen, Belize or Iceland. Our specialised expedition yachts can go places many yachts cannot. Some of the most exciting sailing you can have.
There are no passengers. You will be encouraged to be fully involved from the start. Our instructors will train you in sailing, navigation and boat handling so that you learn huge amounts during your time with us.
Over 80% of our crew come alone, so while couples and groups are very welcome, if you're coming solo you'll also fit right in. Our crews are usually around 50:50 men and women and many are novices.
These are genuine adventures on expedition yachts and quite different from a flotilla holiday. They are exciting, very involved and probably unlike anything you've done before. Expect the unexpected!
