The Gifford family left their home in Washington in 2008 to sail around the world. They have not stopped since. We met up with them in the summer of 2016 in Noank, Connecticut to learn their story and to see how they all live on a 47-foot sailboat. Follow the Giffords on their journey. Special thanks to Aline Escalon for providing some additional footage from her own film, "Totem."

5:02 I get the feeling this was the Dads idea. It's nice and all..but there's something to be said about kids having friends and and dating. I'm wondering if The teenage boy has ever even had a girlfriend.

1st thought : skin cancer.
There's many kinds of smarts. Nothing is more educational than experiencing other cultures. At school we learn by study and thought. In life we learn through gut feel and action. Kids bought up on boats have skipped the baleful influence of TV and are more in touch with the elemental facts of life. Street smarts will beat intellectual excellence almost every day of the week.

Look at how odd those poor kids are because of their dumb parents. Smh. Go home on land and put them in a school so they can get the social interaction they are desperately needing!

50 years later they get back on land and they are in the future
Crappy Boi Videos (11 days ago)
No proper education, no communication, no skills on land (where almost EVERYONE lives and does activities) and the kids look very unhealthy, frail, and unhappy. When they need to return to land because their boat fails/parents are too old/illness they will become clueless hermits of society, I’m sorry but with the way life is set up, children shouldn’t live like this, I guess if they enjoy it is okay 😕
anni collan (11 days ago)
The negative commentators live a really boring and meaningless life on land. I know it because I do too ;) But honestly, this is cool.. Fair winds!**

Guys did you see some Books around there house huh? and you're just telling that it could ruined their education, look, books are so useful cause we can learn something from that and it can help us discover around the world and their children can also learn how to save some money or things like what the boy said that he only have 15 shirt but he only used 4 or 5 of them.

I don’t believe this is bullshit
Sanamana _ (12 days ago)
So because the mom and dad had Pervy fetish to play pirate pirate. Their children will now have no education, have a hard life to adjust to society has no life experience and when the parents die yea they can sell the ship and live off the ship money. Sorry I’m being realistic but I’m not sure if the parents looked into the future for their children.

I loved watching your videos and they are so well put together so well done. I am saving up to do what you guys are doing but it will be a bit of time before I get a yacht and sail away but am learning so much from videos like yours. I have set up a blog and with the help from others My dream will come true, maybe there is someone else who has the same idea and we could pair up and do it together, I am going from zero to around the world with that little bit of luck. www.getmikesailing.com keep up the good work and hopefully see you one day .

✉️ PLEASE SHARE: 🔑 SALVATION IS NOT BY OUR OWN GOOD WORKS, BUT BY FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS ONLY THAT WE ARE SAVED! PREVENTING ANY MAN TO BOAST! DO NOT BE DECEIVED PEOPLE! 🔑 IF WE CONTINUE SINNING, GOD WILL PUNISH US, BUT THERE’S NO WAY FOR US TO GO TO HELL; BECAUSE OUR SALVATION IS BY FAITH ONLY IN OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST. 📌 Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV [8] For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: [9] Not of works, lest any man should boast. 📌 John 10:25-30 KJV [25] Jesus answered them, I told you, and ye believed not: the works that I do in my Father's name, they bear witness of me. [26] But ye believe not, because ye are not of my sheep, as I said unto you. [27] My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: [28] And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. [29] My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father's hand. [30] I and my Father are one. 📌 Hebrews 12:5-11 KJV [5] And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him: [6] For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth. [7] If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not? [8] But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons. [9] Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh which corrected us , and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? [10] For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. [11] Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby. 📌 Proverbs 3:11-15 KJV [11] My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord ; neither be weary of his correction: [12] For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. [13] Happy is the man that findeth wisdom, and the man that getteth understanding. [14] For the merchandise of it is better than the merchandise of silver, and the gain thereof than fine gold. [15] She is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. 📌 We ONLY have ONE GOD! The Father “God the Father”, The Word “Lord Jesus Christ”, The Holy Spirit: and these three are ONE. So we only have ONE GOD. 📌 1 John 5:4-7 KJV [4] For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. [5] Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? [6] This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth. [7] For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. ✏️ Jesus Christ is the WORD! ✏️ Jesus Christ is GOD! ✏️ Jesus Christ is the CREATOR! 📌 John 1:1-18 KJV [1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. [6] There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. [7] The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. [8] He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. [9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. [10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. [15] John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me. [16] And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. [17] For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. [18] No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. 🎺 Praise Jesus Christ our Lord God and Savior! AMEN!

[31] And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house. [32] And they spake unto him the word of the Lord, and to all that were in his house. [33] And he took them the same hour of the night, and washed their stripes; and was baptized, he and all his, straightway. [34] And when he had brought them into his house, he set meat before them, and rejoiced, believing in God with all his house. 📌 John 3:16-18 KJV [16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. [17] For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. [18] He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
