Albany Region for the Aspirational Achievers - Sail the Southern Ocean

Sailing the open ocean challenges your reality like no other venture. ... by joining Southern Ocean Sailing as one of their passengers, you too can feel the thrill of the wind in your sails.  Come along to gain experience and those just looking for adventure will get more than they imagined possible. 

Southern Ocean Sailing has a beautiful 40' yacht 'Panacea' berthed at the Albany marina available for half day cruises, whole day charters, overnight stays at anchor, or just learning how to sail from our very experienced and patient skipper Mark.  Mark's passion is sailing but more importantly introducing you to the wonders of the oceans.

Why not book yourself into HideAway Haven and spend a few leisurely days sailing on our beautiful oceans.  Mark has plenty of options to suit you or will tailor make a tour just for you.

A Life on the Ocean Wave by By Epes Sargent

A life on the ocean wave! A home on the rolling deep!
Where the scattered waters rave, and the winds their revels keep!
A life on the ocean wave! A home on the rolling deep!
Where the scattered waters rave, and the winds their revels keep!
The land is no longer in view, the clouds have begun to frown


And the song of our hearts shall be, while the winds and waters rave.
A life on the heaving sea! A home on the bounding wave!
A life on the ocean wave! A home on the rolling deep!
Where the scattered waters rave, and the winds their revels keep!
