THE ORIGINAL FLAGSHIP OF THE CONSERVATION ORGANISATION OCEAN AMBASSADORS, MOANA TRANSLATES TO DEEP OCEAN.
She sailed around the world one and a half times, visiting Fiji on numerous ocassions before settling in 2014 to work full-time on marine debris issues and solutions. She is a 38ft, traditional designed double hull canoe, gaff rigged schooner and a stunning example of old meets new.
Ocean Ambassadors was founded by Captain Adrian Midwood from his deep love of the ocean. After spending many years sailing the pacific islands and working his way through different sized vessels and projects, he decided to change course and work to benefit the ocean that had given him so much. As an offshoot of EcoSoul's Green Island Project, the original misson statement 'To create jobs, close landfills and anchor renewable energy systems' still stands true today. Moana Sailing Fiji offers you the chance to enter this world and hopefully be inspired to preserve our greatest natural resources, while having fun in paradise! As the saying goes 'Motivation is temporary, ispiration is permanent.' Welcome Aboard!
