Sail Montevideo to Punta Arenas via the Falkland Islands

Duration: 29 days
From: £3,227.00

Set sail on a challenging 29 days at sea on board a tall ship following the route of Ferdinand Magellan's historic voyages of exploration.

Sail Montevideo to Punta Arenas via the Falklands, the Strait of Magellan and the Chilean channels on a fully restored square rigger for a fantastic and historic tall ship voyage. You’ll spend plenty of days at sea – enough to learn the ropes and get comfortable with setting the sails, and have time for sailing theory with the crew. If you’re looking to take your tall ship sailing skills to the next level, this is it.

The voyage starts in Montevideo, then it’s 1200nm to the Falklands and Las Malvinas. Spend time roaming the island with guides and enjoy spotting various wildlife like penguins, Albatross, and more. The 16 days spent here are the heart of this adventure. After that, cross the ocean toward Chile as you sail into the Strait of Magellan. The voyage ends in beautiful Punta Arenas.

What we love about this operator is that everyone is welcome to take a turn at the helm. No experience is necessary. Experienced crew members will provide as much training as you’d like on steering, line handling, and navigation. No yelling or whistles here. Bring your sense of adventure and be prepared to fall in love with life at sea.

This voyage is part of a series from Seville, Spain to Punta Arenas, Chile following in the epic footsteps of explorer Ferdinand Magellan.

Celebrating 500th Anniversary of Magellan’s historic adventures

On August 10, 1519, Ferdinand Magellan (c. 1480 – 1521) started his voyage from Seville, Spain with a fleet of five ships called the Armada De Moluccas, in search for a western sea route to the Spice Islands in the East Indies.

Born in 1480 in Sabrosa, Portugal to a Portuguese nobility family, Magellan visited the Queen’s court at a young age and heard many stories about the great Portuguese and Spanish rivalry for sea exploration. Intrigued by the stories about the Far East, Magellan developed an interest for maritime discovery.

About thirty years later, Magellan started the Spanish expedition that would prove long and exhausting. The ship
Trinidad, commanded by Magellan, was the leading ship of a fleet of five ships. In September 1519 the fleet started their quest for the East from the port of Sanlucar de Barrameda and crossed the Atlantic Ocean. They reached Tenerife in the Canary Islands on September 26, 1519, and set sail to cross the ocean to Brazil. Magellan entered the bay of Rio de Janeiro on December 13 and reached Port San Julián on March 31, 1520. After serious mutinies and several storms, they left the same port in August 1520. They sailed along the coast of South America in search of a certain strait that would allow passage through South America to the East.

500 years later, your ship will follow his route from Seville to Strait of Magellan and into the Pacific! After 500 years, this 107-year-old Dutch Tall Ship is ready to commemorate the quest for new routes of Ferdinand Magellan.

Tour operator

Originally built in 1910, this beautifully restored Dutch tall ship has been crossing oceans and seas on a regular basis since 2000 and has a reputation of a ship that really sails.

Following the favourable winds of traditional sailing routes has brought her to all the continents sailing both the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Ocean, thus earning her nick name ‘ocean wanderer’.

Crew and guests join the ship from all over the world and all ages. As a sail training vessel, everyone on board is assigned to the watch system to help sail the ship - navigating, taking the helm and handling the sails. Sailing experience is not required just a desire to sail to new horizons and experience all aspects of a sailor’s life on board: The wind, the sea, new friends and adventure.
