Galápagos Islands (EC) - Panama (PA) - Santiago de Cuba (CU)

19 May - 06 June 2018

* Last place in a female cabin available – contact info@windseeker.org before booking * This is a journey with many highlights! You start in the Galápagos Islands, in the port of Santa Cruz, where the Anne-Margaretha is anchored. The trip goes first to Panama, where we must prepare for the day trip through the Panama Canal. At the end of the canal you’ll find a small marina (Fuerte Sherman in Colón), where life is good. Then the journey continues towards Cuba. Open for all Windseekers, minimum age 15 years.


The Galápagos Islands are an archipelago off the coast of Ecuador whose wildlife is famous for inspiring Charles Darwin's theory of evolution. There you will see many species that don't exist anywhere else in the world, including giant tortoises, lizards and numerous birds. Take a boat tour through Black Turtle Cove, walk to the Tortuga Bay or, if you're feeling adventurous, take a trekk through massive underground lava tubes.

Santiago is a big and festive city in Cuba and its most important fishing port. Cuban music is deeply rooted in Santiago and is the result of the fusion of African drumming and Spanish guitar. Stroll through the streets of the historical center and savoring the fresh breeze, until you arrive at the famous building La Casa de la Trova. Visit the Revolution Plaza with its monumental statues and don't forget the Diego Velazquez Museum.
