DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 8. Sail along the Argentine coast, past kilometres of pristine beaches and bays. Follow Charles Darwin’s footsteps and journey deep into Patagonia to explore the dramatic frontier landscape of the pampa. Spot wild rhea and guanacos (a species of Lama), as well as caracaras and steamer ducks. The Pataconian coast is seldom visited by most tourists, but home to breath-taking landscapes and wildlife. We will make landfall along the coast as weather and circumstances allow. IMPORTANT: In order to join this journey you must send a proof of vaccination 48h prior to the embarkation. If the situation gives cause to do so, the crew can ask you to take a Sars-Cov-2 Antigen rapid test when you come on board. All Oosterschelde crew members are vaccinated.
