* NEW PRICES – only for bookings made between 1st and 30th of September * Chasing the sunshine. This is the last European journey of the sumemr season for Blue Clipper, before she sails to the Canary Islands and then on to the Caribbean. But before that happens, you can still explore the coasts of Spain and Portugal, enjoying fantastic views, food and culture. Open to Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 15 years.

Ports

A Coruña is a port town in the north west of Spain. Here you will find the Tower of Hercules, a lighthouse that has been in operation for 1.800 years! The town itself is an affluent commercial and tourism hub, with plenty of things to see and do. Visit the popular beaches, explore the city centre, or sample some of the many cultural activities. The Aquarium Finisterrae lets you explore the marine life of the region. But if you prefer your fish on a plate, A Coruña’s restaurants can help you out.

Portimão is a Portugese city in the southern region of Algarve. Take a stroll along the Alvor Boardwalk, relax on the white sands of the Praia Da Rocha beach and visit the Museu de Portimao for a little history lesson. You can also take a dolphin watching tour or do one of the multiple offered water sports.
