Step on board in Callao, Peru and sail with us to Puerto Lucía in Ecuador.
This leg of the DARWIN200 Global Voyage starts in Callao, Peru’s second largest city and largest port. The city is adjacent to the Peruvian capital Lima. This area has a dry desert climate, but along the coast, the cold Peru current regularly creates fog. For us, this current will be favorable. On this adventurous voyage, we sail along miles of beaches with fishing villages and large colonies of seabirds. If the circumstances allow us, we would like to go ashore to explore the remote and seldom visited coastlines. Also from the ship, there is plenty to see, for example the migrating whales along the route. Our destination, Puerto Lucía (or perhaps Salinas) is a jungle-like environment. Here, the ship will be in maintenance for a week to prepare it for the voyage to the Galapagos Islands.
Before and after your voyage leg
We strongly recommend you book a few days accommodation in the port of your embarkation (prior to your joining Oosterschelde), and a few days in the port you disembark (after your place on the voyage ends). This will allow you to recover before and after your adventure and will give you the opportunity to explore locations at your start and end points.

Level 1 trips are suitable for anyone in good health. We sail, for example, in sheltered waters or close to shore. In heavy weather, we can seek shelter in a port or opt for a more sheltered route.
The shipping company would like the OOSTERSCHELDE to be accessible to the widest possible audience, but you must realize that you are making a voyage aboard a seagoing tall ship. This requires more of your physical ability than a daily walk. Some voyages are more challenging than others. With the different levels, we give an indication of how heavy the voyage can be. If you are unsure whether a voyage is suitable for you, it is important to contact shipping company OOSTERSCHELDE for advice
