Take yourself away this Winter to get some well-deserved rest amongst the beautiful Canary Islands.

Onboard, we combine luxury with the traditional to provide a unique sailing holiday navigation, as either a novice sailor or an experienced one. Like most of our fleet, the aim is to include you in as much or as little as you wish to take part in; hoisting of the sails, helming the ship or simply being on wildlife watch. We trust that in our fast-moving modern world, there is a great deal of satisfaction to belong a team aboard a tall ship from a bygone era; navigating the seas, discovering new islands and enjoying that winter sunshine. Our crew are exactly who you want to be joining you in this holiday. Their accommodating nature and professionalism will instantly put you at ease and they will look after you and even if you have never sailed, they will instil great confidence in helping you to learn the ropes.

Away from the hectic tourist centres, we'll show you a wilder side to this extraordinary islands. From walking through the ancient rainforests of Garajonay – La Gomera’s National Park to snorkelling with Manta Rays and phosphorescence – there really is something for everyone
regardless of the age. The spectacular wildlife is, of course, a highlight, but the sailing opportunities and cuisine both onshore and aboard are just as delightful. With the chance to discover all this with the magnificent tall ship as your base makes for an unmissable opportunity.

One of the best parts of sailing in the Canary Islands are the sightings and close quarter viewings of Pilot whales that live close inshore on the 500m contour line. We'll let the whales come to us as not to disturb their natural habitat, but if they do come close, we can move slowly under sail to get the best view – so get the cameras ready! Bottlenose dolphin can also be seen in the area and you can sit out on the bowsprit and watch them surf the bow wave through glossy seas. Other species we have seen in other years are Sperm Whale, Brydes whale, Spinner dolphins, turtles and the Atlantic Spotted dolphin.

Due to Mother Nature, there is, of course, no fixed itinerary for your sailing holiday as the tall ship needs to sail where the wind and weather take her. The Skipper will have a better idea of the weeks rough plan as you're on board and will give a briefing on your first evening. The aim is to have at least one shore day so you could rent a car or a kayak, and get exploring at your own steam.

Sail with the flying fish to the harbour in Valle Gran Rey. We'll dine under the stars after taking an early evening swim in the steep red cliffs. As the sun lifts her head above the ocean, take an early morning dip whilst the local fisherman feed the Manta Rays, before joining the rest of the crew to walk the rivers and valleys of the beautiful Nation Park – Garajonay. Life here is at a slow pace, snorkelling and swimming, walking the quay and watching how the fishermen bringing home their catch of tuna. With plenty of cafes and bars and the only beach on the island, sit back and relax in the sun.

The boat
Originally built with a wooden hull in 1902, her original purpose was to transport fish between fishing boats and back to the harbour. To ensure the fish remained fresh, the ship was built and rigged for speed.

During her working life, she was refitted with a steel hull and after several other owners, she was transformed in 1998 into a luxury passenger vessel. Renovated again in 2012, she was updated with all new safety features/equipment and all the modern comforts you could possibly want from a charter vessel.

With her graceful design and sailing lines, the ship is still very fast, and reliable, and is truly comfortable under full sail. Her build and modern rigging system, allows her to perform excellently both on the Ijsselmeer, Baltic Sea and out on the Atlantic ocean, with most of her time spent in the North & Baltic Sea when she isn’t making the voyage down to the Canary Islands or around the Caribbean.

Whether at the helm, on deck or in the cosy wheelhouse, the vessel is much loved by all her guests
- accommodation of 2 and 3 berth cabins makes her a perfect ship for families too.
