Where you’ll find the ship

Lesser Antilles, Caribbean

Fun Fact

Our new intern, Micah Wisen, spent his semester abroad from Syracuse University sailing aboard Ocean Star during the Spring of 2015. His experience aboard resulted in his desire to continue working in the sailing industry and we are happy to add him to the Tall Ships America team!

The backstory

Originally launched in 1991, Ocean Star has sailed under the Sea|mester  flag since 1998 hosting college-level, semester voyages aboard.  Nearly 400 student sailors have had the good fortune to live, study and sail the Caribbean Archipelago aboard Ocean Star since it was acquired by Global Expeditions Group. This vessel has hosted many newcomer’s to sailing and whose experience crewing Ocean Star were truly life-changing. Let’s hope for their continued success in the sail training industry!
