Step on board in Punta del Este and sail with us to the spectacular Puerto Madryn.
During this leg of the DARWIN200 Global Voyage, the ‘Oosterschelde’ sails south along the pristine Argentinian coast to discover the impressive pampas of Argentina. We stay close to the coast to be less affected by the strong northward Falkland Current. The disadvantage of this is that we have to watch out for the Pampero, a strong southwest wind that comes up very suddenly and can blow with great force from the high plateau of Patagonia. Spot Caracaras while you’re sailing. The waters around Puerto Madryn are famous for spectacular wildlife. We can be sure to see the necessary of this. Whales give birth here from June to December and are present in large numbers and there are also large colonies of sea lions, elephant seals and penguins.
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).

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
