What is an Expedition?
We are so glad you asked!
Expeditions are journeys and voyages undertaken by a group of people, often with a particular purpose. Everyone is an explorer at some point in their life. And, since not everyone has the opportunity to travel the world, we bring it to you. We create a shared expedition experience through our small groups, expert local guides and handpicked destinations that are carefully selected.

Stewardess, Chef, Freediver, Scuba Diver, Photographer, & Explorer
Let me introduce you to Hannah, not just our Chief Stew, but also the passionate founder of Hülya Swim, an eco-friendly swimwear line. Four years ago, she couldn't ignore the alarming amount of plastic choking our oceans and waterways, and that's when her mission began. Hannah decided to create a bikini collection that would incorporate recycled plastics from the ocean, turning her concern into action. Her designs are a beautiful reflection of her deep connection with the ocean, drawing inspiration from her own experiences with its wonders.
Through her twin endeavors, Hülya Swim and Ocean Outcasts, Hannah aims to create awareness and instill compassion for the ocean. Her desire is to inspire others to join her in protecting our planet and its precious seas. Now, with the support of Motor Yacht Hülya, she plans to unify her vision and drive her mission further than ever before. Together, Hannah envisions a world where everyone takes a stand for our planet and its oceans, leaving a positive impact on the environment for generations to come.
