Green Coconut Run is a cooperative sailing voyage, launched by 30 friends in 2015, to realize the dream of sailing around the Pacific. We’ve now evolved into two partner boats, Selaví and Aldebaran.
We are a not-for-profit, focused on affordable expedition sailing for the community, while caring for ocean resources. Starting in 2022, Selaví will also offer charters in the form of adventure retreats. See our new Green Coco Charters website.

Ocean Health: “Cruising with a Cause” :
Along our journey, we look for ways to make a positive impact on ocean health and awareness. We have worked in three areas:
- marine reserves
- micro-plastics research
- solar lights
