Cape Verde Journey #2. Step on board the traditional Tall Ship Oosterschelde for a winter island-hopping adventure. Explore the Cape Verde archipelago, visting 6 different islands, some of them still untouched by mass tourism. Spend 11 days on board, enjoying the mild weather, diverse landscapes and vibrant wildlife. Discover a different place nearly every day. You can join your crew mates on organised excursions ashore – these are optional and paid additionally on board (If you participate in every excursion this will cost about € 140,- per person.) 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. Open to all ages 15+

Ports

Palmeira is the third-largest town in Cape Verde, situated on the island of Sal, yet still has a small, village atmosphere. When you land in Palmeira you will have just completed an Atlantic Crossing, or at least a hefty 2700km sail south from Europe. Whilst resting in Palmeira, visit some bars and restaurants, or explore further to desert Oases, caves and beaches.
