This leg is all about atolls and islands! Explore one of the most beautiful part of our world – the scattered moss-green islands of Polynesia that rise out of sapphire blue waters. Discover local cultures, traditional dancing, outrigger canoes, fringing reefs and visit turquoise lagoons! We will land on as many islands as weather and circumstances allow. Explore beautiful Tahiti before and after this leg, perfect for a pre- or post-voyage holiday!
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!
