At the end we’ll share some of the most popular sailing hastags on Instagram right now.

Captain Lizzy & Tropicat

Captain Liz Clark left California in 2006 aboard her 40-foot sailboat. Twelve years later she’s still surfing and sailing and sharing her life on Instagram. Living on sailboat allows her to reduce her impact on the earth and live closer to nature and she shares a message of unity and sustainability with her followers and on her blog. She also has a cute seafaring kitty!

Sailing La Vagabonde

Elayna and Riley met while traveling and decided to explore the world together in a sailboat and now a catamaran. They are extremely photogenic and share their adventures on Instagram as well as great YouTube videos. Be sure to follow Riley’s account as well.

Sailing SV Delos

SV Delos is a crew of three fun friends and their floating home on the ocean. They invite others to join them as they explore the planet and share it with us on their Instagramwebsite and YouTube channel.

Sailing Totem

Sailing Totem is a family of five who live aboard their sailboat, cruising the world’s oceans as a family. Behan and Jamie and their three children, Niall, Mairen, and Siobhan, took off in 2008 and have been sailing on Totem ever since. Check out their Instagram account and their blog.

Drenched Divers

Two scuba instructors met in Hawaii and are now on a sailing and diving adventure around the world with a crew of other fun folks. Follow their journey on Instagram and YouTube.

Sailing Tranquilo

In May 2017 Fil, El and their son Aiden started sailing around the world. Follow them on YouTube and Instagram.

Aurora Arktika

You’ll definitely get wanderlust for the north when you see these beautiful Instagram images of sailboat tourism in Iceland’s Westfjords and Greenland.

MJ Sailing

Matt and Jessica bought a boat in 2013 and started sailing the world. A few years later they purchased a fixer-upper and have been working on her ever since to get ready for the next adventures. They share images on Instagram as well as behind the scenes stories from YouTube. I like that they show the reality of cruising by sharing their budget.

Wanderlust Sailor

Follow along on the New Zealand adventures Stephanie Dwan and her little sailboat called Escape. She shares a lot of literary quotes with her Instagram posts.


Sailors will especially love this Instagram account as they share all kinds of photos of beautiful boats.
