7 nights: Various dates September 2020 - September 2021

€1,350 /  £1,288 per person*

*Trips are priced in the operator’s local currency. The sterling amount shown is a guide only and the amount you pay in sterling will change with currency fluctuations.

This adventure will lead you on discoveries through small local towns, booming with different cultures as we travel from one continent to another.  You’ll take part in night watches, learn how to work with AIS, radar, and do some plotting and chart work. Along the way, you may also be able to take part in Tuna fishing, and try fabulous food, and of course, there’s always an opportunity to take a dip in the sea!

We will leave Faro and travel South-East towards Barbate crossing the Golf of Cadiz. In Spanish territory, we can visit Cadiz either to indulge with the city’s fantastic tapas or to wander around one of the oldest towns in western Europe. Another option to stop is Barbate. This village has a long history of fishing – the tuna Capital! Maybe you´ll have a chance to get a tuna while passing by.

As a stopover, the town has an attractive central square “Plaza de la Inmaculada” that gathers the “Movida” in the small settlement and a great protected marina (nice showers) that will surely provide a good night sleep.

Arriving Gibraltar you will feel the peace of entering a picturesque remote location, an ironic feeling though, considering that the passage will be a heartbeat raising experience with big ships crossing grey, windy and sometimes turbulent seas. We like to stay on the Spanish side – La Linea. Tapas are closer from Alcaidesa Marina.

The passage to Ceuta is short but challenging. Crossing the Strait is unique. Ceuta and/or Tanger will be options when crossing the Strait.

On the sail back to Olhão, we´ll do a night passage. This mile building covers approximately 300 miles.

We tailor each trip according to the weather forecast; nevertheless, we can introduce you to some of the most desirable options.

You should be able to take a night watch, learn how to work with AIS, radar, plotter and chart work.
