Explore the Strait of Magellan and spot penguins, seals and whales from the deck of our ship! In the heart of this frontier land at the end of the world, we reach Punta Arenas, a fascinating gold rush boomtown beset with elaborate wool-boom mansions, lying close to the terminus of the Andes. If weather and circumstances allow, we may be able to visit Steeple Jason Island en route from Stanley, home to the world’s largest albatross colony!
After a decade of planning, and two successful test voyages in 2020 and 2021, the DARWIN200 Global Voyage will commence in 2023.
We will retract the voyage of HMS Beagle and make landfall at key locations where Charles Darwin stepped ashore during his great voyage of discover.
The DARWIN200 Global Voyage will be undertaken aboard the spectacular 50m long tall ship Oosterschelde. Built in 1918, this uniquely restored, three-masted schooner is the most beautiful historic vessel afloat.
Complete with a bar, a wood-fired stove and a piano, she will be your home during your adventure!
