Travelroute
Day 1

Valencia

On one corner its centuries old and around the next totally modern - Valencia is everything all at once. Today the beautiful old town and the old silk market "La Lonja de la Seda", which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, still bear witness to the city's wealth in the Middle Ages. A brand new part of the city is situated in a drained river bed and has avant-garde buildings including a futuristic opera house, the largest aquarium in Europe, a botanical garden and a public park. Valencia is one of the few cities that has a heritage of over 2,000 years and is also so intriguingly combined with the future. And no other city in Europe can proudly make the claim that the America's Cup has already taken place twice right on its front door.

Day 2

Alicante

Day 3

Sailing together with SEA CLOUD

Day 4

Málaga

Málaga has spruced itself up. In 2003, the Museo Picasso opened in a 16th century Renaissance palace and is dedicated to the artist's extensive life's work. This historic old city invites you to take a stroll and its buildings gleam like new. And above everything towers the Alcazaba, a mighty walled fortress. The port was completely redesigned when the city was opened to the sea and you can now take a lovely stroll along the promenade. In Málaga's hinterland you can see the most beautiful aspects of traditional Andalusia. From a distance the typical Andalusian villages look like white dabs of paint shining out from the brown of the barren mountain landscape.

Day 5

Málaga - Passing Gibraltar

Day 6

Cádiz

The old city of Cádiz, around 3,000 years old, has a picturesque location on a narrow headland, right by the Playa de la Caleta with its elegant beachside promenade. Visit the Andalusian capital of Seville and you will be transported back to the heyday of Moorish splendour and rule, but also the age of discovery. This town sits on the Guadalquivir River was a centre of Spanish maritime trade with the New World. Many buildings in the old town are registered as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the splendid Moorish Alcazar fortress and the huge Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria de la Sede. Seville is a fun-loving city that is still at the centre of Andalusian culture and is considered the proud birthplace of Flamenco.

Day 7

Sailing together with SEA CLOUD

Day 8

Casablanca

Disembarkation.

Around 90 kilometres (56 miles) from Casablanca is Rabat, one of the country's four imperial cities. This modern capital with its historic centre was accepted onto the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 2012. Hassan Tower, Rabat's landmark, dates back to the time when the city was the Sultanate's capital. Close by, and yet built hundreds of years later, is the Mausoleum of Mohammed V. You can find this regal residence in the elegant French-influenced residential quarter, Ville Nouvelle, with its boulevards and splendid Art Deco colonial buildings.

Overview

Along Spain’s Sunny Coast: Valencia – Casablanca

A Mediterranean cruise on board the SEA CLOUD, SEA CLOUD II or SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is all about the romance of tall ship sailing. The sailing vessels offer a uniquely pleasing mix of elegance and informality while cruising under white sails.

Sailing side by side with the Sea Cloud
Few and far between are the occasions, on which one can experience two fascinating windjammers together and directly compare their manoeuvres. Sailing from Valencia to Casablanca, the two Sea Cloud sisters follow the same course for several days. When both yachts glide along side by side under full sail, they offer a truly breathtaking spectacle.
Málaga – city of culture
Much more than just “Costa” and “Sol”: As the second largest city in Andalusia, in recent years Málaga has evolved into a true destination of culture. Next to classic sites like the cathedral and the Moorish Alcazaba, Picasso’s birthplace entices with suprisingly varied museums that focus on topics from archaeology and modern art to automobile design, wine, and glass.
Seville, the capital of Andalusia
Visiting Seville, you walk right into Spain’s eventful history – past the stony witnesses of its Moorish past
and the glorious times as a maritime trade hub. Above the narrow lanes of the old town and the palm-fringed squares emerges the imposing Giralda: Originally built as a minaret of the main mosque, it was later incorporated into the cathedral as its bell tower.
The gentle pace of life in Cádiz
History comes alive in the city of Cádiz. One of Europe’s oldest cities, this charming harbour town boasts a
beautiful cathedral and baroque buildings, a tranquil old town and defiant watch towers. The town centre, with its delightful tapas bars, can be easily explored on foot from the harbour.
Please Note: more sailing cruises are available, not all of them are listed online. Please contact us for more details.

Arrecife/Lanzarote

The "Island of Fire", a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, has been continually recreated by volcanic eruptions. A third of Lanzarote is a bizarre lunar landscape of barren, beige-grey lines of hills and "fire mountains". In sharp contrast to this are the snow white houses, golden beaches and sparse green vegetation. Its quaint wine-growing areas of La Geria have been declared an all-embracing art form by the Museum of Modern Art. The painter, sculptor and architect César Manrique understood art as the link between man and nature and made a vital contribution to the look of his island home through his artistic creations.

Day 12

Las Palmas/Gran Canaria

Disembarkation.
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.

Windjammer rendezvous between Southern Spain and Morocco
Few and far between are the occasions, on which one can experience two fascinating windjammers together and directly compare their manoeuvres.

Magical Marrakech
Snake charmers and fortune tellers, jugglers and spice traders – the Djamaa el-Fna market place is the hotspot for everything that makes Marrakech a living fairytale. The red facades lining the maze of oriental streets conceal magnificent mosques, cool courtyards and luxurious gardens.
Lanzarote and its famous architect
With his vision of a harmonious link between mankind and nature, César Manrique transformed Lanzarote into a work of art. This surrealist painter, architect, sculptor and conservationist created colourful wind chimes and wall mosaics, turned lava caves into homes and tirelessly fought to ensure the preservation of the natural and cultural identity of the island where he was born.

Day 2

Las Palmas/Gran Canaria

Day 3

San Sebastián/La Gomera

Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys and evergreen cloud forests characterise the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees and metre-high ferns form a cloud forest where treemoss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches - a truly mystical natural spectacle which has existed for millions of years.

Day 4

Santa Cruz/Tenerife

Even from afar you can see the impressive panorama with Tenerife's landmark, Mount Teide. Its peak is the highest in Spain at 3,718 metres (12,200 foot) and is often covered in snow. The Las Cañadas National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a high volcanic plateau at the foot of Teide, surrounded by a circle of rock that rises up steeply. Volcanic activity has created strange-looking rock formations here which are adorned with a huge range of colours and seem like a unique synthesis of nature's art. In contrast to this are the fertile valleys of the north, a barren, almost desert-like south and the island's vibrant capital city, Santa Cruz.

Day 5

Las Palmas/Gran Canaria

Disembarkation.

Overview

Sunny Nature of the Canaries: Las Palmas – Las Palmas

A sailing cruise on board the SEA CLOUD, SEA CLOUD II or SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is all about the romance of tall ship sailing. The sailing vessels offer a uniquely pleasing mix of elegance and informality while cruising under white sails.

A short break from your daily routine
Neither golden autumn nor the white of winter – the last days of November are hanging over the calendar just like a sad grey rain cloud. If you don’t feel like doom and gloom, leave your daily routine and the hot water bottle behind and escape to the Islands of Eternal Spring. On the Canaries, you can recharge your batteries with plenty of sun.
Sailing with the trade winds around the Canary Islands
Beautiful days of sailing are guaranteed, when the Azores high sends steady north-easterly trade winds to the Canaries. At comfortable four to five Beaufort and agreeable temperatures of around 20 degrees, the windjammer explores the sunny shores of Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Tenerife over a long weekend.
Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks
These two UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide national park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon.

Ship information
Coral Adventurer
Vessel Type: Expedition Ship
Length: 93.4 meters
Passenger Capacity: 120 (60 staterooms)
Built: 2017
Our brand new ship is built to take you closer to unspoilt vistas in comfort, style and safety. A culmination of two years of design and three decades of passion for expedition cruising – Coral Expeditions is proud to invite you to experience the Coral Adventurer.
Bigger is not better
At a time when cruise ships get larger and glitzier, we remain stubbornly compact and intimate. Our ships are designed to take you to unspoilt destinations not accessible to large ships.  We want you to have the luxury of space, dine with whom you please, or find your quiet corner on deck.  So we have limited the Coral Adventurer to 60 spacious cabins.  This preserves the intimate atmosphere we are known for without sacrificing the stability and comfort of a true ocean going vessel.
Built for discovery
The Coral Adventurer features our trademark dual ‘Xplorer’ tenders cradled on a hydraulic platform slung off the back of the ship, enabling our guests to go ashore in comfort and ease.  The shallow draft of the ship enables us to go closer to shore than larger ships.

Fare from € 1.895
<read more>
Travelroute
Day 1

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.

Day 2

Las Palmas/Gran Canaria

Day 3

San Sebastián/La Gomera

Many people consider La Gomera to be the most wildly romantic island in the Canaries. Rugged gorges, craggy hillsides, fertile valleys and evergreen cloud forests characterise the landscape. The Garajonay National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, embraces the whole central mountain area and is an unusual little spot. Ancient bay trees, heather bushes as high as trees and metre-high ferns form a cloud forest where treemoss hangs from the trees and mosses cling to gnarled branches - a truly mystical natural spectacle which has existed for millions of years.

Day 4

Santa Cruz/Tenerife

Even from afar you can see the impressive panorama with Tenerife's landmark, Mount Teide. Its peak is the highest in Spain at 3,718 metres (12,200 foot) and is often covered in snow. The Las Cañadas National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a high volcanic plateau at the foot of Teide, surrounded by a circle of rock that rises up steeply. Volcanic activity has created strange-looking rock formations here which are adorned with a huge range of colours and seem like a unique synthesis of nature's art. In contrast to this are the fertile valleys of the north, a barren, almost desert-like south and the island's vibrant capital city, Santa Cruz.

Day 5

Las Palmas/Gran Canaria

Disembarkation.

Overview

Sunny Nature of the Canaries: Las Palmas – Las Palmas

A sailing cruise on board the SEA CLOUD, SEA CLOUD II or SEA CLOUD SPIRIT is all about the romance of tall ship sailing. The sailing vessels offer a uniquely pleasing mix of elegance and informality while cruising under white sails.

A short break from your daily routine
Neither golden autumn nor the white of winter – the last days of November are hanging over the calendar just like a sad grey rain cloud. If you don’t feel like doom and gloom, leave your daily routine and the hot water bottle behind and escape to the Islands of Eternal Spring. On the Canaries, you can recharge your batteries with plenty of sun.
Sailing with the trade winds around the Canary Islands
Beautiful days of sailing are guaranteed, when the Azores high sends steady north-easterly trade winds to the Canaries. At comfortable four to five Beaufort and agreeable temperatures of around 20 degrees, the windjammer explores the sunny shores of Gran Canaria, La Gomera and Tenerife over a long weekend.
Magic forest and moonscape: two famous national parks
These two UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sites could hardly be more different: While the evergreen cloud forest Garajonay at the heart of La Gomera offers fascinating scenery made up of rivers, waterfalls and dense moss, Tenerife’s Las Cañadas del Teide national park is extremely dry. With tall lava tongues and bizarre rock formations, its volcanic landscape looks almost like the surface of the moon.

Note: the exact cruise plan of sailing yachts is never present, due to weather conditions.., that's sailing!

Overview

St. Martin – Anguilla – BVI – Saba – St. Barth – St. Martin

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…

Travelroute
Day 1

Philipsburg (St. Maarten)

Embarkation.

Day 2

Gustavia/St Barthélemy

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.

Day 3

At sea

Day 4

Santo Domingo

On this island, which is part of Hispaniola, Columbus founded the first Spanish colony in America. Santo Domingo, the present capital of the Dominican Republic, is the first and oldest European-founded city in the New World. Old in the New World still means relatively young - it corresponds to Renaissance visions of the ideal and was the model for many cities in Latin America. A visit to the historic old city is like a journey through time. The splendid stone buildings are testament to the era of the colonial conquests and have been smartened up as World Heritage Sites under the protection of UNESCO.

Day 7

Port Antonio

Port Antonio was once the world's banana capital, but for a long time now international VIPs have discovered this town for themselves. Some properties can be found near the clear deep waters of the Blue Lagoon. The pretty little town, surrounded by sugar cane fields and banana plantations, impresses particularly with its delightful beaches. The Rio Grande is the island's largest river and channels its course over 60 kilometres (37 miles) in green solitude through the jungle and into the sea. Historically, bananas and other fruit were carefully transported on bamboo rafts along the waterway to the port. Nowadays the rafts have been equipped with bench seats and are used for excursions.

Day 8

Santiago de Cuba

The El Morro fortress towers high above the bay. It was almost completely destroyed by the pirate Henry Morgan but just 20 years later was once again strong enough to withstand any attack. Santiago de Cuba, an architectural gem, is proud not only of its reputation as the birthplace of the revolution, but also of its musicality. If you go for a walk, sooner or later you will find yourself in an authentic Salsa bar. The whole city has music in its blood, and nowhere else do people make so much music or dance so much. The rhythms of the Salsa, Son and Rumba are just as thrilling in clubs, bars and schools as they are in the famous Buena Vista Social Club.

Day 9

At sea

Day 10

Cienfuegos

Cienfuegos, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2005, whose name literally translates as "Hundred fires" is also known as the Pearl of the South. The city owes its grand, romantic architecture to the French colonists who first settled there. The beautiful old town of Trinidad de Cuba is a true gem, with lovingly restored colonial facades, sleepy lanes and a turquoise sea. This friendly town, with its important past at the centre of sugar cane cultivation, has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site for many years, along with the cultivated landscape of the Valle de Los Ingenios, or "Valley of the Sugarmills".

Day 11

Cienfuegos

Day 12

Maria la Gorda

Maria la Gorda was once a place for corsairs and pirates to rest up. Nowadays you can concentrate on enjoying the wonderful swimming or taking a long walk along the beach. The highlights are all about the water. Remote picture-postcard beaches with shady palms, a warm, calm sea that radiates every shade of blue, and a coral reef which provides the ideal conditions for snorkelling.

Day 13

At sea

Day 14

Havana

With its beautiful balconies, wrought iron railings and idyllic inner courtyards, a stroll through Old Havana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, brings you right to the heart of life in the city. Old American limousines cruise past magnificent colonial buildings on the wide boulevards and the Malecón Promenade is a popular place to walk at sunset. In the legendary Tropicana club, where stars like Frank Sinatra and Josephine Baker once appeared on stage, the flamboyant, high-spirited shows still create the same mood today as they did when it opened in 1939.

Day 15

Havana

Disembarkation.
