Azores - Lisbon

Oneway sailing from Horta / Azores to Lisbon.
Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Azores – Lisbon

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…

Please Note: More sailing cruises are available, not all of them are listed online. Please contact us for more details.

A treasure of the Côte Fleurie, Honfleur is located on the edge of la Crique de Rouen in Normandy. You will no doubt admire the historical ships moored in its old port. With its tall, slate-covered houses, the quays provide a great setting for a very nice walk. In the streets behind the harbour, you will see many timber houses. These picturesque places were the cradle of several pre-impressionist painters. You can see their works in the Eugène Boudin museum. Exhibited works represent scenes of medieval streets and the coastline as it used to be, as illustrated by the Butin beach and its lush green hillsides.

Day 1

Lisbon, Portugal

Portugal’s capital on the Atlantic Ocean is comprised of several key districts built on seven hills. A good place to begin is the historic Alfama district, a maze of medieval streets and alleyways leading to a hilltop on which you will find the Castelo de São Jorge. One of Lisbon’s most popular attractions, the castle provides sweeping views over the city. Descend to the riverfront Baixa district to enjoy its shopping, restaurants and neoclassical architecture. The Bélem district is home to a pair of UNESCO World Heritage sites: Bélem Tower, celebrating the Age of Discovery, and Jerónimos Monastery, a prime example of ornate Manueline architecture. If time permits, the charming villages of Sintra and Cascais are only a short distance away, and many choose to make the pilgrimage from Lisbon to Fátima, where apparitions of the Virgin Mary appeared in 1917.

Day 2

With a day at sea, enjoy the unique opportunity to unplug and relax into the unhurried life on board.

Day 4

Ponta Delgada, São Miguel Island, Azores, Portugal

With its elegant architecture, cobblestoned streets and restaurant-lined marina, Ponta Delgada on the island of São Miguel is the charming capital of the Azores. See the three-arched Ponta Delgada, which dates back to 1783; sample local cheeses in the Mercado da Graça; or stop to smell the flowers in Antonio Borges Garden. Venture outside the city and you’ll never forget the view from the Mirador do Rei lookout. Local myth has it that the green-blue shade of the Sete Cidades twin crater lakes were formed by the tears of two star-crossed lovers – one with blue eyes and one with green. Alternatively, take a therapeutic dip in the thermal pool at the beautiful 18th century Terra Nostra Estate, or head back to Ponta Delgada, and enjoy the vibrant bar scene.

Day 5

Praia da Vitória, Azores, Portugal

From the colorful and unique imperió shrines that dot the cobblestoned streets of the port town of Praia Da Vitória, to the atmospheric allure of Algar do Carvão, a 90-meter-deep volcanic chimney that formed some 3,200 years ago, the island of Terceira is an utter joy to explore. Spend a day relaxing on a volcanic beach, dive the island’s incredible shipwrecks and reefs, or head to the historic town of Angra do Heroísmo. With its atmospheric winding alleyways, formidable 16th century fortress and beautifully-preserved Old Town, this UNESCO World Heritage Site is the oldest city in the Azores archipelago. Alternatively, head north to the village of Biscoitos to take a dip in lava-rock bathing pools and sample some traditional fortified wines at the Museu do Vinho.

Day 6

Horta, Azores, Portugal

Sailing into the famous marina of Horta on the island on Faial is the quintessential yachting experience. This maritime town has been a mid-Atlantic steppingstone for sailors since the Age of Discovery, and today it’s a pitstop for international regattas like Les Sables-Les Açores-Les Sables. Check out the colorful wall on the marina’s breakwater – seafaring superstition states that sailors should paint a message on it to ensure divine protection for their crossing. Take a whale-watching trip or go hiking at Caldeira, a two-kilometer-wide and 400-meter-deep volcanic cone. And don’t miss the opportunity to visit Pete’s Café Sport, which is overflowing with yachting memorabilia – and merry sailors – from around the globe. This charming café opened in 1918 and is world famous among the sailing community.

With its wild landscapes and a Scottish heritage that can be felt at every turn, Cape Breton Island is one of the most unique destinations in Canada. Take a stroll along Sydney’s waterfront and stop for a photo beside the world’s biggest fiddle – a massive nod to the region’s Celtic musical roots at over 60-feet-tall – or head to the Witney Pier Historical Society Museum to learn about the people who immigrated here from all over the world. Sydney is also an ideal base for exploring the Cabot Trail, which is a great place for golfing, kayaking and whale-watching. Fin, pilot, humpback and minke whales congregate here between May and October. At the end of the day, grab a pint in a cozy bar and listen to some traditional Celtic tunes.

Day 12

Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada

A major economic center of Atlantic Canada, Halifax is also all about culture and scenery. And history. And shopping. And food. Active travelers will enjoy a hike along nearby Peggy's Cove to see the iconic lighthouse, or a Segway tour through Halifax proper, or even a kayak through the harbor. With miles of coastline, Halifax has some of the best views in Nova Scotia, and the national historic site of Halifax Citadel is one of the best places to take in these scenic vistas. Also meriting a visit are the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, which displays relics of the Titanic collected after the ship sank off these shores. The charming waterfront area of the city is filled with boutiques, cafés and restaurants and hosts an array of festivals throughout the year.

SeaDream guests may visit top tourist locations such as Blandy's Wine Lodge, the open Worker's Market and the Sacred Art Museum. You will find a passenger gondola lift (Funchal Passenger Ropeway), that transports people from the lower section of the city to the suburb of Monte. Aside from the city of Funchal, there are more tourist destinations such as Santana, beaches of Porto Santo Island, Porto Moniz, Ribiera Brava, Curral das Freiras, and the UNESCO Natural site, the Laurisilva forest.

Horta, Azores

Somewhere in the Atlantic Ocean, far from civilization, the luxuriously green archipelago of the Azores emerges from the sea like shards of paradise that splintered from the heavens above. While each of the Azores is volcanically formed, Faial Island boasts one of the most dramatic calderas, whose mile-wide depression is ringed by precipitous cliffs. From the Espalamanca Overlook, absorb a magnificent panorama of Horta and the picturesque coastline, perhaps even catching sight of the neighboring islands of Pico, São Jorge and Graciosa. While exploring, keep an eye out for brightly hued blue hydrangeas, a frequent sight that gave rise to Faial’s affectionate nickname of Blue Island. On the island’s starkly beautiful westernmost tip, you’ll find a lighthouse that survived a volcanic eruption and found itself further inland after the lava flow had solidified. Set off on a seagoing exploration to view majestic whales, which abound in the nutrient-rich Azorean waters, and at the fascinating Scrimshaw Museum, examine whale’s teeth that were intricately carved by local fishermen during long voyages. You might encounter some of these hardy folk at Peter Café Sport, a buoyant local institution famed for its sailing memorabilia and invigorating gin and tonics.

SeaDream docks in Old San Juan, the oldest part of the city. Parts of this historic port city are still surrounded by stone walls dating back to the 1500’s. Narrow cobblestone streets, small shops, and points of interest like Cathedral of San Juan Bautista make this charming city a great place to stroll. Guests sailing into or departing from San Juan will enjoy views of Castillo de San Felipe del Morro, a mid- 1700’s Spanish fortress. San Juan Luiz Munoz Marin Airport is approximately a 30-minute drive to the port in Old San Juan. Currency in Puerto Rico is USD.

Fulfilling the dream of a lifetime – crossing the Atlantic from Gran Canaria aboard a windjammer: Las Palmas/Gran Canaria – Philipsburg

An authentic sailing experience
Crossing the Atlantic on a traditional tall ship is an experience that leaves a lasting impression. For 17 days your exact course is determined only by the elements. When the crew sets the sails at dizzying heights, the wind fills the canvas and the ropes stretch and creak; and you will experience a tangible sense of freedom.
Following in Columbus’ footsteps
What would have been going through Columbus’ mind as he set sail in 1492? It is virtually impossible to sail across the Atlantic in the discoverer’s footsteps without constantly considering his thoughts and ideas. Columbus had not yet discovered the trade winds, which provide ideal sailing conditions in the westerly direction during the winter months, but nowadays we know that they guarantee fantastic sailing for the Sea Cloud on her way to the Caribbean.
Relax and enjoy
Great adventures do not always mean great effort. For 17 days we sail a westward course across the Atlantic, always heading towards a magnificent sunset. It will not be long before you sit back and relax; surrounded by vast horizons and looked after by an attentive crew, you will leave your every-day stress behind in no time at all.

Denia - Tenerife

Oneway sailing from Denia (Spain) to Tenerife (Canary Islands).
Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

Denia – Tenerife

Combine the best of two worlds – an authentic sailing experience on large sailing yachts – without the pressure of fixed routings, and the comfort and service of a cruise.

We merge the best of the world of sailing with the world of traditional cruises. Authentic and individual sailing, just as if you had chartered your own yacht, is combined with the attentive and caring service of our professional crew and the comfort of a cruise ship.

Thereby, we do not follow a strict routing during the mostly one-week sailing cruises, but go by wind, weather and the desires of our guests. Hence, if the wind is good, we may sail even a little into the night, accompanied by a breathtaking view of the stars above…

And if the wind is calm, we just find the closest bay and enjoy a refreshing swim, go snorkelling or take a stroll on the beach.., pure seafaring, far from the mass tourism of large cruise liners.

Whenever possible, we actually set sails, but only for about 4-7 hours a day. In the remaining time there is plenty opportunity to take a swim right off board, to go on an individual excursion to the shore and get to know the country and its people, and much more…
