Westbound Transatlantic Sailing Special Offer

Our superb Westbound transatlantic crossings depart in October and November. Whichever you choose, a traditional voyage under sail from one continent to another is sure to be a memorable journey.

The magnificent 5-masted Royal Clipper leaves Lisbon for a 16-night journey to Bridgetown and takes in the fishing port of Safi in Morocco and the popular island of Tenerife, dominated by Mount Tiede. In 2017, guests can also enjoy a call in the lively city of Casablanca, while in 2018 there is also a call at picturesque Portimao in the western Algarve.

Join Star Flyer on an 18-night voyage sailing from Las Palmas across the Atlantic to Barbados. In 2017, she calls at beautiful Mindelo in the volcanic Cape Verde archipelago and in 2018 she calls at San Sebastian, the stunning capital of La Gomera in the Canary Islands.

The facilities and service on board the Star Clippers fleet ensures you an enjoyable Atlantic voyage. The furnishings are elegant and the easy-going atmosphere is helped by open-seat dining and no requirements for formal dress.
