Voyage description

A voyage between two of the most fascinating archipelagos in the world. Explore the incredible Galapagos Islands, then embark to sail to Easter Island.

The route to Easter Island is approximately 1900 nautical miles. Real nautical miles: we will not see land anywhere along the voyage. But it is most certainly not boring. Soon after we’ve left the Galapagos Islands, we enter the climate zone where the southeast trade winds rule. We’ll prepare the ship for this, maybe we put a reef in the mizzen and steering full-and-by we try to sail as hard as possible in the right direction. As the current also takes us to the West, we are not sailing in the right direction at first. Along the voyage, we are not alone: in these waters are many whales. It takes some practice to spot them, but during the voyage, we will encounter humpback whales, dolphins and if we are lucky even blue whales.

Easter Island is located just in the so-called Horse latitudes. A climate zone characterized by variable, and unpredictable, winds. Finding a quiet anchorage can be difficult here due to the swell that comes in from other parts of the ocean.

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 3

Level 3-voyages are only suitable for the experienced and fit (sea)traveler. The weather could be challenging and during a crossing, there a few if not any options to divert to a harbor. We sail out of reach of helicopters and medical care from shore is usually not available.

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.
