From the spectacular waters around Puerto Madryn we sail even further south.
From the spectacular waters around Puerto Madryn we sail even further south. We also stay close to the coast because of the Falkland Current. Spot Caracaras and Tachyeres while sailing. And have you ever enjoyed a Christmas dinner on the high seas before? The Patagonian coast is relatively little visited by tourists, but this impressive landscape is home to many special animals.
The Falkland Islands are expedition leader Stewart McPherson’s favorite destination. He came here often and made beautiful documentaries of the special animal life in this deserted place. Several species of penguins live here, such as the Magallanic penguin, the Gentoo penguin, and the King penguin. The largest colony of Black-browed Albatrosses in the world breed here too and there are large colonies of sea lions, seals and of course the giant elephant seals. Different species of dolphins, whales and orcas are also a major attraction because they can be found here in large numbers.
During this leg of the DARWIN200 Global Voyage, we will visit the various spectacular hotspots and historic areas of the southern archipelago. We will also celebrate the New Year along the way!
The Patagonian coast is seldom visited by most tourists, but home to breath-taking landscapes and wildlife. We will make landfall along the coast as weather and circumstances allow.
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 2-voyages are suitable for anyone in good health and a reasonable level of fitness, without mobility issues. On these voyages, you can expect days with strong winds or high waves, but most of the time the conditions will be good. A harbor is not always nearby and (medical) help from shore is therefore not always 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.
