Set Sail on a Tall Ship from
New Zealand to Easter Island
Experience a true ocean sailing adventure under square rig from Auckland, New Zealand to Easter Island, in the South Pacific. Relive the classic days of sail with Søren Larsen as she harnesses the world’s trade winds for this ocean adventure.
Sail in the wake of the ancient Polynesian navigators and pioneering voyages of Captain Cook aboard this magnificently restored square-rigger. Blue water sailing on an authentic tall ship to the famously remote Pacific island of Rapa Nuie.
The Kingdom of Tonga
Tropical island cruising through the Kingdom of Tonga and southern Fiji , in the South Pacific. Sailing between the these two island nations is as much about exploring remote destinations untouched by modern tourism, and encounters with local village cultures, as about sailing a square rigger. You will call at remote island communities, discover isolated lagoons and explore ashore to experience the culture of the islands. Plus there are plenty of opportunities to snorkel and swim.
Patrick O'Brian's Legacy
David Mills of The Times of London recently wrote about the sailing experience, comparing it to the famous series of nautical adventure books by Patrick O'Brian.
"It was my first morning aboard the Soren Larsen. We had spent the night anchored in Smugglers Cove, Whangarei Heads, off the northeast coast of New Zealand, and were about to spend five days sailing around the islands of the Hauraki Gulf.
I’m not sure whether I was indulging a fantasy, a midlife crisis or coming to terms with our national identity. A psychologist would say my reasons were overdetermined; my wife just says I’m pretentious. Having found the film version of "Master and Commander" fantastically exciting, I decided there are two essential characteristics to being English: the ability to fly a Spitfire and to sail a square-rigged ship. I had done neither.
