Tenerife (ES) - Sal (CV)

03 September - 11 September 2023

DARWIN200 Global Voyage: Leg 2. Sail from Tenerife to the Cape Verde Islands to discover the tropical landscapes, sapphire waters and diverse wildlife that enthralled Charles Darwin during his first forays ashore. Cape Verde is famed for its dramatic hill walking, the Viana sand desert and extensive coral reefs home to green sea turtles. The islands also boast unspoilt beaches! We recommend you book additional nights in local hotels before and after the journey to get the best of both worlds – explore the Canary Islands and relax in Cape Verde afterward! 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. Book now with a deposit payment of € 500. This deposit is fully refundable until December 31st 2022.

Ports

Tenerife is the largest of the Canary Islands, and a popular tourist destination. One of the largest Carnival festivals is hosted here, and for tourists there is a lot to see and do. But the island is large enough to escape mass tourism, so let its natural beauty seduce you to a hike or a drive around the island. You’ll find mountains to climb, cliffs overlooking bays, and ravines. The ‘Island of eternal spring’ is just what you need if you arrive fresh from your Journey!

Sal is one of the three sandy eastern islands of the Cape Verde archipelago, together with Boa Vista and Maio. The island is a dream destination for windsurfing enthusiasts, due to its sandy beaches and persistent winds. Tourism is on the rise in Cape Verde, but outside of the beach resort of Santa Maria the island retains its relaxed feel. Explore the quiet streets with their brightly colored houses, the blue eye cave, and the saline flats. The sun shines 350 days a year, so bring sunscreen!
