Trip 1: Europe to Caribbean - Crossing the Atlantic Ocean

15th of November 2021 - 5th of January 2022   €6950,-

 

This is a journey with many faces. After leaving Europe you will have a few days at sea to settle into a routine before arriving at the diverse landscapes off the Canary Islands. From Black Lava Rock & volcanoes to some epic mountain hikes. It’s another week at sea before a small spec of land will appear on the horizon stepping into a completely different world.

 

 

The Cape Verde lay close to Africa and the culture is as such. You will have to communicate with your hands and feet unless you speak creool, a mixture of Portuguese, Spanish & English. Both the history and culture of these islands are incredibly fascinating.

Still flabbergasted by all the new experiences we will set sail to cross the Atlantic Ocean, a three week journey that gives plenty of time for self reflection, teamwork and spending some amazing hours in the never ending blue of the ocean and sky until the islands of the Caribbean pierce our horizon.


Trip 2: Northern Caribbean Islands Adventures ( windward Islands)

7th of January - 11th of February   €5900,-

 

Dive into the tropics!  Many of the Caribbean Islands are blessed with green lush hills and mountains that are home to thousands of amazing animal species. The Island hopping journey stands for lots of exploration. The islands you will see and the route depend on wind and weather. Let the wind be your guide and become one with nature. The diversity of these islands culture, history and geography makes everyday a new adventure.

Trip 4: Crossing to Europe via Azores

22th of March 2021 - 13th of May 2022   €6950,-

 

Ready for some more salt and sailing ? Sail back with us across the Atlantic Ocean. You will have a little bit of time in the Northern Caribbean before starting on our long crossing to the Azores, passing the mysterious Bermuda Triangle. After exploring

the Azores and of course adding your name to the thousands of dock paintings to show that you also have braved the seas to get here. It's now time for our last crossing, heading into colder and rougher seas before coming back to Europe as a real seafarer. This journey will give you a broad and good perspective of ocean sailing as we go trough several different weather systems, water-temperatures and therefore have a big diversity of sea- life.
