Sail to the Falkland Islands, home to an astounding range of wildlife, including five species of penguins, the world’s largest albatross colonies, elephant seals and fur seals. Several days are planned to visit key islands as circumstances allow. The Falklands are one of the world’s best kept wildlife secrets! We will visit spectacular wildlife hotspots and historic sites, where weather and circumstances allow. Highlights include vast shag, penguin and albatross colonies, and seal beaches.
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!
