Duration: 27 days
From: £7,840.00

Visit the lost continent on this stunning Antarctica tall ship voyage setting sail from the Falkland Islands.

Before setting of for the lost continent explore the shores and Islands of the Falklands with their colourful wild life including king penguins and rock hopers. From the Falklands set sail to cross the infamous Drake passage, after which  Elephant Island will be your first land fall followed by the beautiful South Shetland Islands.

From there your Antarctica tall ship journey continues to take in the sights of the great white continent from Half-moon bay to Paradise harbour and Port Lockroy. During your stay on the Antarctic Peninsula its likely the ship will be in company of Humpback whales, Fin Whales, Minkey whales and you’re likely to see many of the continents other visitors including penguins and a great variety of seals. If the ice allows the ship will try to transit the Le Maire channel with it awesome views!

After a live changing cruise through this timeless wilderness it is time to set off for Tierra Del Fuego, the land of fire. On your way across the Drake Passage you’ll hope to make land fall at Cape Horn. This rock is an icon for many a brave sailor who has navigated the tricky windy and seas of this southern most part of South America.

After clearing in to Chile in the world’s most southerly village, Puerto Williams there should be time for a look around Isla Navarino before finishing with the Beagle Channel to reach Punta Arenas.

Your tall ship was once a fishing vessel that roamed the North Sea as sailors filled the hull with herring. She was built in 1915 with no engine or means of propulsion other than her sails. After some decades of neglect, she was restored in 1985 and eventually purchased by the tour operators. Their dream has been to take care of this historic vessel and expose new sailors to the delights of life at sea and what more exciting a voyage to join her on than a trip to Antarctica!

Tour operator

An old Herring drifter (Logger) built in 1915, the ship is 28 meters long over deck (38 meters overall) and takes 16 trainees on her voyages. No previous sailing experience is needed and experienced and new sailors love her equally.

A family of four professional sailors have owned and run this vessel since 2006 and sail her with true passion. Built for the North Sea she’s a fast sailor and her rigging is as traditional as it gets.

We love that the boat’s appearance is kept as traditional as possible yet combined with modern techniques and equipment. Everyone on board is part of the informal sail training program that is designed to get the best out of everyone whether you join for 2 days or a longer ocean crossing.
