St Helena to Cape Verde
This little itinerary operates during the northbound spring migration of birds such as Arctic Terns and Long-tailed Skuas. The chances of seeing whales are high during the days at sea. The Plancius offers comfort but not luxury and presents very good value.
Highlights: St Helena – Ascension Island – Cape Verde Islands
Dates: 22 April 2020 – 2 May 2020
Journey: 10 Days
Sailing the Ridge
Departing St Helena you sail along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, the submarine mountain range running some 10,000 miles from the Arctic Ocean to near the southern tip of Africa.
Onward to Ascension Island
This dry volcanic island is a home to the sooty tern (also known as the wideawake bird). It is estimated that the colony here sometimes grows to over a million breeding pairs.
You may get the chance for a hike to the top of this island, and a visit the shore to sight green turtles laying eggs on the beach.
Cross the Equator
Joining you across the Equator are Arctic terns and long-tailed skuas in their northbound spring migration.
Praia, Santiago Island
Disembark at Praia on Santiago Island, the capital of the Cape Verde Islands.
Here you can visit the historic Cidade Velha with its imposing fortress built as a defence against English raiders. Other sights include the oldest Christian church in the tropics, and the slave whipping post in the main square.
