Oosterschelde:
Galapagos (EC) - Easter Island (CL)

19 May - 04 June 2024

DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 16. Sail between two of the world’s most fascinating island groups. Explore the incredible Galapagos Islands before boarding for this leg and discover the wildlife that captivated Charles Darwin. At Easter Island marvel at the approx. 1,000 monumental statues, called moai, created by the early Rapa Nui people. In the waters around Easter Island, spot humpback whales, dolphins and (if you are lucky) giant blue whales. Flights connect with mainland Chile for easy onward travel.
There is no more Covid-19 protocol on board, but the participants must make sure that they comply with the rules of the countries visited during the Journeys.

Ports

Easter Island - or Rapa Nui - is a remote island on the Pacific Ocean. It belongs to Chile. Famous for its hundreds of giant stone statues (moai), Easter Island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Go diving with the underwater moai, admire the Milky Way at night without the light pollution, explore the Anthropological Museum and try the local specialties for an all round experience.
