Join a guest crew of just 12 fellow sailors on the leg of a voyage to explore Polynesia under sail from Easter Island to Tahiti and then on to Hawaii on this Pacific Ocean sailing adventure.
Starting from Easter Island, the first part of the voyage will be an ocean crossing. With good weather, nice warm night watches and maybe even time to take a dive in the deep, deep blue, you are heading straight West to the first islands of the Pacific.
There will be enough time to visit many of the islands in between Hanga Roa and Tahiti. Most islands are on top of an atoll, some of them are uninhabited, others have small communities living there. This will be the first time the Tecla visits the French Polynesian islands.
Your chance to explore the Pacific Islands with a crew of like-minded adventure seekers. A month-long voyage will give you enough time to really see what these amazing islands are all about. Dive into the waters around the atoll’s and dive into the culture of the islands.
Fresh fruits on the islands, fresh breeze out on the waters. With a South East trade-wind we will head for the equator and cross it meeting Neptune on the way. Winds in the North Pacific will turn to a South West wind, getting us to Hawaii.
This is not just a holiday; it is an expedition. It is all about the experience and seeing these islands in a different way.

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.
On board the crew we do not work with a set menu. The menu is developed on board with influences of her surroundings. We try and cook with as many local fresh products as possible, this means that around the Canary Islands we eat a lot of tapas, peppers, plantanas (banana’s). In Brazil we eat a lot of fresh fruit, cow meat and rice. And around the North Sea, when it gets colder you will find some ‘stamppot’ (Dutch mashes potatoes specialty) with smoked sausage on your plate.
During a longer stay on board you will hardly ever see the same dish come by. Most of our meals are served with a salad or fruit on the side. During longer trips we take good care of our vegetables and fruit to ensure that you will enjoy fresh food as long as possible.
If you have an allergy or cannot eat certain food, please contact us with your dietary concerns. We provide a healthy menu were you will have enough choice.
We do not provide a vegan diet and on certain voyages we do not provide a lactose intolerant or gluten free diet.
We do provide sweet, savoury, hot and sometimes somewhat fat delicious food, but there is always a healthy choice next to it.
Who is this trip for?
No sailing experience needed, all instruction given on board by the crew to enable you to take part in all aspects of sailing the ship.
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.
