I've been spear-fishing for about 20 years, maybe a few more. I can hunt around 40' deep and hold my breath for about a minute and a half, nothing special. I always manage some food (fish/lobster) unless I'm being lazy and just don't want to clean smaller...

  Sail Far; Live Slowly!  


Sailing the world, living simple, and loving it all!

Have you ever dreamed of cruising, or possibly circumnavigating the globe on a sailboat? I'm doing it and I'd like to take you with me. Register today and enjoy the experience through my ships logs, pictures, videos and much more. Registration is free and we will not send you anything with the exception of a newsletter that you can opt out of if you choose.


My name is Alex Dorsey and welcome to Project BlueSphere. 

I left the United States in early 2003 in search of something different. I was unenlightened by a carrier in Hollywood as a filmmaker and the pursuit of material objects and money. I felt trapped in a matrix of credit, bills, rules, societal expectations, and disappointment. I dreamed of autonomy, world travel, and self-sufficiency. 

With next to nothing in my pocket I sailed south from Florida and my adventures have taken me to the Bahamas, Jamaica, Colombia, Panama, the Galapagos Islands, The Marquesas islands, The Tuamotos, Tahiti, Moorea, Raiatea, Bora Bora, The Cook islands, Nuie, Tonga, New Caledonia, Australia, Japan, Bermuda, and the British Virgin Islands. 

After sailing half of the world I realized I was no longer on a “circumnavigation” but a lifetime of international cruising, adventure, and minimalism. However I yearned for a ship that was large enough for me to carry large stores and equipment which would enable me to become more self-sufficient. 

I sold my sailboat “Namaste” (28’ WestSail) in Brisbane Australia. I returned to the United States and bought “Splendid”, a 1973 40’ Cheoy Lee Midshipman Ketch. Splendid was in bad repair, but was affordable. I invested two years of labor into making her seaworthy and once again left Florida for the world. 

Today, 9 years later, I live a very rewarding international life on under nine-thousand dollars a year. I make my own bread, pasta, beer, wine, cheese, yoghurt, soy milk, and tofu. I spend much of my time spear fishing, and on a daily basis I strive to live on even less. 

I live on more than 90% green power generated by my solar panels. I power my life with nature and travel by the wind; this brings me great joy and harmony to my humble lifestyle.   

I don’t know where the trials and tribulations of Project BlueSphere will go; I only promise an honest view of my perspective as I travel so other interested men may follow. I only wish Project BlueSphere to be a light to the unconventional path I forge, and life I lead. 

I will do my best to share my experiences through my words, photographs, and films. If you’re interested you may watch the previews to my first two feature length films by following the links on this page.

Membership is free. By joining Project BlueSphere you will only receive an occasional news letter that you can easily opt out of however you will have access to my photographs, videos, and blog. My blog is interactive so you may comment and ask questions of me, as well as other like-minded individuals. 

Thank you for your time.

Sail far and live slowly.

Alex Dorsey
