Voyage description

The gateway to your journey, Tenerife, is both a visual spectacle and a cultural haven. The island's capital, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, is home to the Parque Marítimo César Manrique, a harmonious blend of art and nature, offering stunning views of the sea and the iconic Auditorium designed by renowned architect Santiago Calatrava.

As we set sail, be sure to join in on the fun! You're invited to assist with the sails or take the helm, which will make your journey memorable. Our destination, Las Palmas, is a vibrant city with something for everyone. It's a place brimming with vitality, offering a unique Spanish ambiance, where history comes alive in the lively streets of Vegueta and Triana, the city's historic core.

Our final port, Arrecife in Lanzarote, is a coastal city with a soul shaped by the sea. Lanzarote's maritime culture is rich and diverse, encompassing fishermen, sailors, artists, and surfers, all of whom share a deep connection with the ocean. The city's history is also linked to the sea, with the local hero Gregorio Fuentes, said to have inspired Hemingway's "The Old Man and the Sea," hailing from Arrecife.
