Blogging families afloat

family cruising blogs

It’s amazing how many families on boats are blogging their lives afloat. I craved reports from the big blue on what it was really like to go cruising before we left…there just wasn’t much posted back then!

I know how much this helps families making their own plans, so here’s an aggregate of, well, all the blogging families afloat I could find, pretty much. (See this page for a list of YouTubers.)

Most of these are cruisers, but there are a few liveaboards too: we face similar issues, and it’s all good information to help with feeding the dream.

If you’re interested in families afloat that update by Facebook, I’ve created an interest list that aggregates the families here who use Facebook Pages as a substitute (or complement) to a blog. You can find (and follow) that list here:

Blogs come and go so if you know one that should be added, drop me an email. Jan 2019 update!
