Sail across the Pacific Ocean to land at fascinating Pitcairn Island, home to the descendants of the mutiny on the Bounty. The island is rich with history, including ancient Polynesian rock carvings and unique birdlife. Taste local breadfruit and unique honey! After Pitcairn, sail through the coral-rich waters of French Polynesia, arriving at Mangareva, in the Gambier Islands. Flights connect Mangareva to Tahiti and beyond, allowing for easy onward travel.
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!
