Vital Alsar Association

We are an intercultural non-profit organization founded in 1980 in Santander, Spain, to support the expeditions of the Spanish navigator Vital Alsar.

For over 40 years we have carried out different actions and events to facilitate the knowledge of his figure and the dissemination of his feasts.

Today we continue to promote his memory by helping to preserve the remains of his vessels, his memories, marine studies, and messages of peace that became part of the marine cultural heritage.

Our organization works to give continuity to his legacy of universal values, ocean studies, and his message of brotherhood between civilizations.

From the same love for the sea, we aim to empower ocean literacy with the white flag on top of our mast. We want to continue inspiring, raising awareness, and contributing to the education of present and future generations.
