Mazatlan and Isla Isabel – Episode 3

In this episode we begin our journey down Mexico’s mainland coastline, starting with Mazatlan! Join us as we explore the city’s colorful streets and marketplaces. From Mazatlan we head 100 nautical miles to Isla Isabel where we spend a few days with 40,000 nesting birds.

OUR MISSION: Agape means unconditional, self sacrificing love. We love the beautiful beaches, clear water, and great days sailing as much as anyone, but we also strive to help the communities that inhabit and make these places so great to visit. Follow along as we drift around this big blue orb exploring and helping where we can!!! You can help out as well, support us on Patreon and we will in turn give 100% of donations away to the people and communities in need that we find along the way. You can also directly support Agape with PayPal. We hope these videos inspire others to turn their dreams into reality, and our hope is to authentically document the ups and the downs of long term sailing and traveling.

Hard Times on the High Seas – Episode 2

In this episode we continue our voyage south down the Baja peninsula of Mexico, and realize that cruising and being away from friends and family sometimes means missing out on certain life events. For more see our previous post: Darkest Before the Dawn.

40 Days and 40 Nights

We are finally putting together a few videos of our first season cruising! Here is the first one Josh has made of our time refitting Agape before beginning our journey around the world. It ended up taking forty days on the hard to finish most of the work we wanted to get done before leaving. Josh quit his job two months before our planned departure date in order to work on the boat full time. We hauled out in the Ventura Yacht Yard, but with the help of our friends and family we were able to complete the majority of the work ourselves.
