For nearly 50 years, Greenpeace has been sailing the world's oceans protecting our planet and fighting for environmental justice. From obstructing nuclear tests in the Pacific, to documenting plastics in our oceans; from conducting research into the effects of climate change in the Arctic, to stopping shiploads of illegal timber leaving the Amazon; from bringing humanitarian relief to communities devastated by extreme weather to collaborating with local authorities to arrest illegal fishing operations in West Africa – our ships are fundamental to Greenpeace campaigns.
It’s people that really make the fleet the powerful campaign tools that they are. Our crews, who come from all over the world, from all walks of life, to spend long periods of time away from home taking action and supporting communities on the front line of environmental destruction. And our supporters, ordinary people from all over the world who choose to donate their time and money to make it all possible. The fleet that we sail, is really your fleet.
Have you ever dreamed of sailing on a Greenpeace ship? The ship’s core crew is made up of people from a wide range of backgrounds – ranging from captains, mates, and marine engineers to doctors, cooks and volunteer deckhands. It is hard work. But it could be the experience of a lifetime.
