Expedition Drenched’s Top Youtube Videos
You can catch up on all of Expedition Drenched’s YouTube videos on their channel. But we’re sharing their top three episodes here. Take a look.
Most Painful Experience of My Life – Samoan Traditional Tattoo
While sailing in Samoa, Captain Nate partakes in a once-in-a-lifetime experience. He gets a traditional Samoan tattoo. And let’s just say it’s not for the faint of heart. Warning — there is blood.
Sailors often wear tattoos as a badge of honor. Sea folk tended to be superstitious people in the past, and therefore their tattoos had a much deeper meaning.
In the Samoan culture, getting a tattoo is a mark that you’re ready to serve your people. Watch this episode to see Nate get his traditional Samoan tattoo.
Why Buy a Sailboat and Wear Clothes?
Expedition Drenched hits some rough seas in this video. After a sleepless night, they get in some great diving and see dolphins off the boat’s bow. And when you own a sailboat, wearing clothes is optional. So crew member, Jordan, sits on the bow, topless, to watch the dolphins exclaiming that living life your way is what’s important.
Living on a sailboat isn’t easy, but what it offers can far outweigh the downsides. Freedom is one of its main benefits. The freedom of exploration on the open sea comes with the shedding of judgment, self-doubt, clothes, and more. Jordan demonstrates this through her fearlessness.
Goodbye Blonde Squad!
Crew members, Megan and Kelly, leave Expedition Drenched in this video for their next adventure. Saying goodbye to crew members is always bittersweet.
