Welcome to Unsettled Sailing: Baja California Sur.

Five years ago, the Unsettled story began on a sailboat with 40 friends in the British Virgin Islands. It was one of the most incredible weeks of our lives. Ever since, we’ve been constantly searching for new waters to explore. We’ve chartered the waters off the coasts of Thailand, Croatia, and of course the BVIs many times. This time, we’re setting our sights on Mexico’s Sea of Cortez.

We’ll be setting sail again this October with three to four beautiful sailboats, a gang of 30-40 pirates, and one hell of an adventure ahead of us. We will spend our days sailing from island to island and beach to beach. You will get close with your boat crew, learning the ropes of sailing together, sharing stories under the stars, cooking family style meals, partying under the moonlight, and living every moment to its fullest with an incredible curated community from around the world.

Ready to join us?

"Inspiring" "Unforgettable"

An inspiring, unforgettable experience. I absolutely loved my time with Unsettled and still keep in touch with the amazing people I met there (with reunions in 6 countries so far!). 

-Colin Decker, Creative Director


It was an extraordinary experience, one that left me feeling affirmed, motivated and inspired. I’ve never experienced group travel in the way that Unsettled does it, and the co-curation of our time together made it so much more than just a trip.

-Rani El-Khatib, Managing Director of Dubai-based Creative Agency

If you’ve been wanting to break up the routine… give this experience a try. It just might prove to you that a totally new way to live is not just possible, but possibly right at your fingertips.

I had some of the most interesting, raw, and enlightening conversations of my life at Unsettled. For those conversations alone, the Unsettled experience has truly enriched my life!
