Sail with the OOSTERSCHELDE from Tenerife to Cape Verde, just like Charles Darwin did.

Voyage description

The OOSTERSCHELDE is waiting for you in the port of Santa Cruz on the island of Tenerife. From this Canary Island, we sail directly to the Cape Verdean archipelago. This voyage is usually very enjoyable. We pick up the favorable Northeast trade winds and the Canary current gives us the extra boost we need. We are now so southerly that the temperature at sea is pleasant, both day and night.

With fair winds and following seas as it is called, we spend a lot of time on deck. There are not many other ships here, but if you pay attention, there’s a lot to see. Seabirds (at this latitude, we’ll see other species), but also dolphins, flying fish, occasional sunfish and if we are lucky maybe even a turtle or whale. We hope to cover the 700 miles from Tenerife to Cape Verde quickly. It is therefore possible that we arrive a little earlier, but for sure, we arrive no later than September 10th.

The next day, after breakfast, you will disembark. There is plenty of accommodation to be found on Sal and we recommend extending your stay in Cape Verde by a few days before flying back home. Or ‘get the best of both worlds’ and explore both the Canary Islands before this trip and relax in Cape Verde afterwards!

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

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.
