The Expedition Experience

With all the romance of a transatlantic crossing and the thrill of adventure this voyage sets out to cover nearly 7,000 nautical miles. Sail from Portugal, as so many Old World explorers did, and venture to the southern tip of the New World. We will cover a vast area of the globe at a relaxed, contemplative pace—experiencing a great ocean while taking a break from everyday routines.
