Alexander von Humboldt II:
Santa Cruz de Tenerife (ES) - Cadiz (ES)

15 March - 25 March 2016

A great Mile Maker and Sailing journey for any Windseeker who’s serious about getting ocean experience! This long voyage offers you the opportunity to experience the true life of a sailor. You’ll sail from the Canarian Islands along the Golf of Gibraltar and will have a big chance to sea dolphins and whales. While on board you’ll be part of the crew, enrolled in the watches. This Journey is for people who like to experience true life at sea. Cadiz is a beatiful and historic town and will have beautifull beaches. Open to Windseekers of all ages, minimum age 14 years.

Ports

Santa Cruz de Tenerife is the shared capital of the Canary Islands, together with Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. The central square Plaza de España is a real eye-catcher, situated between the ocean and the old, bustling city centre. Lose yourself in the crowded alleys, find a spot on one of the terraces, or leave town and discover the rugged volcanic landscape. The museum of Nature and Man is worth a visit. Chances are you’ll find pilot whales in the waters around Tenerife, so keep an eye out!

The oldest city in Spain, with a wealth of historic landmarks. Water is never far away, as the old town is built on a narrow stretch of land jutting out into the Mediterranean Sea. Get lost in the Old town with its many narrow, winding streets and visit one of the many parks that dot the city. Its many cathedrals and plazas are also well worth a visit. Go to La Caleta beach, at La Viña, the old fisherman quarter. Go catch a Flamenco concert and feast your taste buds with the fresh sea foods.
