Explore and sail the Southern Ocean towards one of the world's last wildernesses on board a family run tall ship where you are the crew.
Between December – February 2022- 2023 and 2023-2024 a beautiful family-run tall ship will sail and explore Antarctica and welcomes 12 guest crew on board to sail with them. In 2024 they will then sail across the Southern Ocean Cape to Cape ending in Cape Town. The trip info below is for the Christmas 2022 voyage but complete the enquiry form for the full sailing schedule!
Could this be the best Christmas and New Year adventure of all time?
Only 12 lucky guests are able to join this incredible vessel – it’s a completely unique experience. Before setting off for the lost continent we will explore the shores and Islands of the Falklands. Colourful wild live like the Kingpenguin and Rockhopers are the main attractions.
This trip will not only visit the Antarctic peninsula but also South Georgia. South Georgia used to be home to many whaling factories not so long ago. Today South Georgia, like Antarctica is highly protected. It is only permanently inhabited by scientist. This enabled the flora and fauna to start to recover and happily the Elephant seals are again king on the beach!
Coming back from South Georgia, head for Antarctica where we hope that Elephant Island will be the first land fall. Following this chain of Islands you’ll come to the South Shetland Islands. Its highlights the imploded Deception Island. From there your journey continues to take in the sights of the great white continent. Possible places to visit are Half-moon bay, Paradise harbour, Port Lockroy, all depending on the weather conditions of course. During your stay on the peninsula it would be very possible to be in company of Humpback whales and Fin Whales although nothing can be certain with wildlife.
The most Southern continent also has its own kind of fauna like the many penguins, but also a great variety of seals among whom we can hopefully find the fearsome looking Leopard Seal. If the ice allows us the crew will try to transit the Le Maire channel with it awesome views! After a life changing cruise through this new world it is time to set off for Tierra Del Fuego, the land of fire.
On your way across the Drake Passage the crew hopes to make land fall at Cape Horn. This rock is an icon for many a brave sailor. After clearing in to Chile in the world’s most southerly village, Puerto Williams you can have a look around Isla Navarino, before finishing this voyage.

There are 6 cabins, each for 2 persons. The cabins are situated in the middle of the ship, which makes them as stable as possible.
Your bunk is inside one of the two person cabins. Your bed will be either the high or the lower bed of a bedbunk. All beds are over 80cm wide and 2 meters long. Each bed has a reading light for the evening hours. The cabins are ensuite. In a wet cell you will find a shower, of course with hot and cold water, and a toilet, that when possible flushes with outside water. In the cabin itself you will find a fountain and mirror. Your clothing can be stored in closet and your bag or suitcase can be stored under the bed.
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.
On September 13th she and her crew were the first traditional sailing ship to complete the North West Passage after Roald Admundsen with his ship Goya in 2013.
