Atlantic Adventure! Board the Morgenster in Setubal, an hour away from Lisbon, and set course for the open ocean. Make your way to the beautiful Madeira, stretching your sea legs in Porto Santo. Enjoy the local biodiversity, looking for sea birds and dolphins which visit these waters, before setting out for the Canary Islands. Spend days on the open ocean, enjoying the warm weather, and participating in watches to bring the Morgenster to your destination. Reach Santa Cruz and spend the last evening celebrating the end of your voyage, before disembarking the next morning.
This voyage is recommended for experienced and fit sailors.
Open to all Windseekers aged 18-73 years. Younger trainees, accompanied by an adult, at request. This booking is covered by VZR Garant (instead of Windseeker’s usual STO Garant).

Ports

Setubal is a port city in Portugal, about 50 km from Lisbon. For the local feeligh visit the fish market Mercado do Livramento, take a stroll through the Doca dos Pescadores fishing harbour and have seafood in one of the multiple local restaurants. You can also choose to walk around the old town or the waterfront, or relax on a nearby beach.

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!
