Las Palmas, Gran Canaria Round Trip

November 21st to 28th 2017

Voyage SC – 1740

Las Palmas / Gran Canaria

With its black volcano almost 2,000 metres (6,561 foot) high and endless white beaches along the coastline, the island of Gran Canaria displays a huge variety of landscapes. A “continent in miniature” with rugged rock formations, dense pine forests, dry valleys and reservoirs in the interior, lush vegetation in the north, shimmering dune landscapes in the south and weirdly shaped cliffs in the west. Almost half the island has been registered by UNESCO as a Biosphere Reserve. The capital, Las Palmas, is no less colourful, with its port and history stretching back 500 years. The showpiece of this historic old town is the magnificent Santa Ana Cathedral.

Sailing without fixed itinerary through the Canary Islands.

Stops are arranged according to wind and weather conditions.

SmallShips.travel | Sea Cloud | Bridgetown to St. John's Mar 29 2018

Bridgetown to St. John’s

March 29th to April 9th 2018

Voyage SC – 1810

Itinerary

29. Mar 2018 Bridgetown (Barbados)   22:00
 

More than 300 years of British rule have left their mark. The whole of Bridgetown, Barbados’ historic centre, with its colonial architecture surrounding Trafalgar Square, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Gentle green hilly countryside and endless fields of sugar cane characterise the island’s landscape. Old colonial houses are reminders of the high life of the plantation owners, while innumerable colourful chattel houses are evidence of their workers’ “moveable property”. The sweeping coastline is a picture postcard of fine sandy beaches and turquoise sea surrounded by colourful coral reefs.

   
30. Mar 2018 Port Elizabeth/Bequia (St. Vincent and Grenadines) 14:00 22:00
 

Bequia is actually the largest island in the Grenadines, but still small and tranquil at just 18 square kilometres (87 square miles) in size. Elegant sailing yachts sway in the natural shelter of Admiralty Bay, while in lovely Port Elizabeth, with its attractive beach bars, you are right in the heart of a lifestyle that likes to take things easy. You can find Princess Margaret Beach just nearby, named because it was once visited by the British royal. On the eastern coast you can find the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary which focuses on rearing and caring for endangered turtles.

   
31. Mar 2018 St. George’s (Grenada) 13:30 23:59
 

Beautiful beaches, aromatic spice plantations, dense rainforests, waterfalls and a volcano that has long been extinct, picturesquely towering over this stunningly beautiful island. For many people, Grenada is the incarnation of a tropical paradise and St George’s the most beautiful little port in the Grenadines. All around the horseshoe-shaped bay there are numerous houses that remind you of colonial times. There is good reason why nutmeg is immortalised on the national flag. Alongside cloves, cinnamon and ginger, it is one of the island’s biggest exports.

   
01. Apr 2018 Tobago Cays (St. Vincent and Grenadines) 08:00 09:30
01. Apr 2018 Chatham Bay/Union Island (St. Vincent and Grenadines) 11:00 17:00
 

Right in the south of the Grenadines are Union Island and the Tobago Cays. Union Island was given the evocative name “the Tahiti of the West Indies” thanks to its volcanic silhouette. Four small uninhabited islands, surrounded by a protective horseshoe-shaped coral reef, form the Tobago Cays. The Horseshoe Reef holds the Atlantic swell at bay and its unique animal and plant life make it an ideal place for snorkelling. The lagoon between the islets shimmers in all shades from turquoise through to emerald green and invites you to take a dip at the fantastic beaches.

   
02. Apr 2018 Soufrière (St. Lucia) 13:30 17:30
 

Two famous volcanic cones are indisputably the emblem of St Lucia and have been designated as UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Gros and Petit Piton tower over the southern, windward side of the island and, in Soufrière, seem close enough to touch. The volcanoes have in fact long been extinct, but the sulphur springs demonstrate the power of the earth’s core and still bubble up. In the Botanical Gardens, natural abundance is combined with artistic arrangements to create a colourful tropical paradise. Some people claim that Josephine, who later became Napoleon’s wife, used to bathe in the little pool in the garden.

   
03. Apr 2018 Sailing together with SEA CLOUD II    
03. Apr 2018 Les Anses-d’Arlet (Martinique) 16:00 22:00
04. Apr 2018 Cabrits (Dominica) 08:00 14:00
 

Dominica, nicknamed the “Nature Isle” of the Caribbean, is one of the most untouched of the Windward Islands. It boasts some of the highest mountains in the Lesser Antilles, as well as many beautiful national parks. Its interior is characterised by thick virgin forest, where rivers plunge into the depths and tiny streams wind through the jungle. Two extinct volcanoes are at the centre of the Cabrits National Park and, recaptured by nature, the former strategically important Fort Stanley appears like a picturesque backdrop in the heart of the jungle.

   
04. Apr 2018 Terre-de-Haut/Îles des Saintes (Guadeloupe) 20:00  
 

Îles des Saintes is a small archipelago which was disputed for a long time until it finally became French in 1816. In the charming main town of Terre-de-Haut, you can take a delightful stroll along the waterside promenade. Boutiques, cafés, bars and restaurants invite you to browse and spend some time here. The ‘savoir vivre’ takes place against a backdrop lit up in all the pastel shades of the Caribbean. Fort Napoleon is set high above the bay and your climb up to it is rewarded by a spectacular panoramic view. On the other side of the island, the Plage de Pompierre invites you to enjoy a dip in the sea and sunbathe on the beach.

   
05. Apr 2018 Terre-de-Haut/Îles des Saintes (Guadeloupe)   13:30
06. Apr 2018 Basseterre/ St. Kitts (St Kitts and Nevis) 14:00 22:00
07. Apr 2018 Gustavia/St Barthélemy (France) 13:30  
 

St Barthélemy, affectionately known as St Barths by most, had already had many “owners” before the Lesser Antilles were acquired by France in 1877. When the first estate was acquired by the banker David Rockefeller in 1957, the island’s future was finally sealed. It became a refuge for the international jet set and an elegant holiday paradise for many Hollywood stars. For over 40 years, St Barths has cultivated a luxurious lifestyle with a Caribbean laissez-faire approach. You can stroll through the charming main town of Gustavia, whose beautifully restored houses and colonial facades look out over the sea with its elegant superyachts, browse in the shops for precious items, or enjoy a sundowner in the picturesque harbour surrounded by clusters of high class bars and restaurants.

   
08. Apr 2018 Gustavia/St Barthélemy (France)   13:30
09. Apr 2018 St. John’s/Antigua (Antigua & Barbuda) 08:00  
 

St John’s is the capital of this small island in the Antilles, a former British colony. From Shirley Heights in the south you have a fantastic view over the English Harbour and Nelson’s Dockyard, an old restored shipyard named after the Admiral. Visit Betty’s Hope, a restored sugar mill where “white gold” would have been processed during the island’s bitter past. Now sweet black pineapples grow in the gentle rolling landscape around Boggy Peak. The coast is lined with bays and lagoons, dazzling white palm-filled beaches – one for every day of the year – and an almost unbroken coral reef.

25. Dec 2018 North Sound/Virgin Gorda (Virgin Islands(Brit)) 08:00 13:00
 

Explorers and privateers once used to cross swords in the Sir Francis Drake Channel. Nowadays the sea around the British Virgin Islands is one of the world’s best sailing areas. Heavenly bays, gorgeous beaches, idyllic anchoring spots, smart yacht clubs and charming little beach bars make the island a popular haunt for sailors. On Virgin Gorda, once called “The Fat Virgin” by Columbus due to its shape, you can find “The Baths”, one of nature’s most beautiful oddities, in the National Park. Ground to a sphere and polished to a shine, the huge granite formations on the beach and in the water create a multi-branched labyrinth of giant boulders.

   
25. Dec 2018 Great Harbour/Jost van Dyke (Virgin Islands(Brit)) 19:00  
 

The Sir Francis Drake Channel, where swords were once crossed, is now one of the most beautiful sailing spots. Jost van Dyke, the smallest of the main islands in the British Virgin Islands, is a mountainous volcanic object of beauty with fewer than 300 inhabitants. One of them, Foxy, has been mixing his cocktails since 1968 and the bar of the same name enjoys a legendary reputation as perhaps the most famous beach bar in the Lesser Antilles. The island’s past is less reputable – it was named by a Dutch pirate. The island gives its most beautiful treasures to all who visit – fine sand, green palm trees, colourful beach bars and the luminous blue of the sea.

SmallShips.travel | Sea Cloud Cruises – Cruise Like a Millionaire

Guaranteed Best prices available for the Sea Cloud & Sea Cloud II.

Bring a Friend: Encourage your friends to take a cruise in 2014. For a new booking of an additional cabin, you and your friends will receive an onboard credit of € 200 per cabin.   

Enjoy the elegance & luxury of the world’s finest sailing yacht!


Sailing done the old fashioned way – If you have ever had a yearning to sail the 7 seas under billowing sails, the way it was done in times past, then  this is your opportunity. Built in 1931 for Marjorie Merriweather-Post and her husband Edward Hutton, the Sea Cloud is a one of a kind sailing vessel that has been transformed into the ultimate cruise ship .

The Sea Cloud cruises the most beautiful waters of the world!

  Imagine yourself below four masts flying 22 full sails, sweeping you toward the horizon. Feel your soul blissfully soothed by the sound of waves and the rush of the wind into the Sea Cloud’s sails, as it cruises the world over.

Small ship cruising means you can visit exciting small ports in addition to popular large

ones.  The Sea Cloud cruises the Aegean, Tyrrhenian and Black Seas, the Mediterranean, along the Cote d’Azur, through Northern Europe, in the Indian Ocean, and around the Lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. A trans Atlantic voyage aboard the Sea Cloud is the experience of a lifetime. Spend your days relaxing on deck under the full sails; enjoy gourmet dining and fine wines. What a journey.

The 60 person crew works hard both on and high above the decks to sail the ship “by hand,” just as it was done 75 years ago. They serve a

 maximum of 64 guests, so you can be guaranteed that the service will always be personal and impeccable. 

Rendezvous with Neptune, Bacchus and Lucullus: Meals aboard the ship evoke the traditional style of the classic American yacht club of the early 20th century. Gather here for formal welcome and farewell evenings. You will be treated to artfully prepared cuisine enjoyed during open seating. Inspired by nouvelle cuisine, the menu is enhanced with local specialties which change with the itinerary. The Sea Cloud’s chef personally selects ingredients from local markets. If you can take your eyes off the meal before you, enjoy the setting sun just beyond the dining room’s picture windows.

Today, the Sea Cloud navigates the ocean along with its sister: the Sea Cloud II, a more modern ship but with the same elegance of her sister.  For anyone who loves the sea, Sea Cloud cruises combine history, tradition and the true sense of adventure with 5 star accommodation and service. Take a cruise and see for yourself. It is a spectacle you likely have never experienced – nor will again — on the ocean today.

SmallShips.travel | S/V Rembrandt Van Rijn

S/V Rembrandt van Rijn

 

S/V ‘Rembrandt Van Rijn’  was  built as a herring lugger early last century. The vessel was rebuilt as a three-mast passenger sailing schooner in he Netherlands in 1994 and sailed in Spitsbergen (1994 – 1996) and in Galápagos (1998 – 2001). The vessel underwent a complete rebuilding and refurbishment program until 2011. The communication and navigation equipment has been completely renewed according to the latest SOLAS regulations. The Rembrandt van Rijn measures 56 meters in length (168 ft.), 7 meters in width and has a draft of 2,5 meters. The maximum speed on engines is 9 knots. It has an experienced crew of  7 persons on board including 2 tour guides.

The ship is well suited for expedition cruising among small islands and offer good open deck viewing areas, also when under sail. The 2 inflatable rubber crafts (zodiacs) enable landing and wildlife viewing opportunities in otherwise inaccessible areas.

Ice class:
The s/v Rembrandt van Rijn has no ice class. During her refit, the bow of the vessel was enforced and is therefore suitable to sail in the Greenlandic waters.
