Voyage along the Argentine coast, past kilometres of pristine beaches and bays. Follow Charles Darwin’s footsteps and journey deep into Patagonia to explore the dramatic frontier landscape of the pampa. Spot wild rhea and guanacos (a species of Lama), as well as caracaras and steamer ducks. The Pataconian coast is seldom visited by most tourists, but home to breath-taking landscapes and wildlife. We will make landfall along the coast as weather and circumstances allow.
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!
