Cruisers' Websites

Contents

On this page, we list interesting cruisers websites and blogs. Some have stopped cruising, but their site still holds a lot of very useful information, however, the majority are still underway. As well as circumnavigators we link to cruisers in every area of the world.

Don’t Miss our “Portrait of a Cruiser” feature, profiling regular contributors to Noonsite.

If you would like your website or blog listed here, please send an e-mail to [email protected] with your profile, cruising route and planned onward cruising, the start date of your blog/vlog and a crew photo. We will reply as soon as possible. Please remember to send us updates if your contact details or other information changes, thank you.

For some useful websites with information about cruising with children go to Noonsite/Cruising Information.
