Travel Itinerary:

On Saturday, the captain and his crew will welcome you aboard Thalassa. That same evening or the next morning we will start our sailing journey with Dublin as our first destination (1 day of sailing). Dublin, the capital of Ireland, is known for its vibrant culture, rich history and beautiful architecture, including the iconic Dublin Castle and the bustling Temple Bar district.

Dublin, Scilly’s, and Dartmouth:


After arriving in Dublin we will spend a day exploring the city. Enjoy a visit to the Guinness Storehouse for a lesson in brewing the famous Irish beer or take a stroll along the banks of the River Liffey.

Next, we will set course for the Scilly Islands, a challenging sail where you can experience everything that true sailing entails. The Scilly Islands, located off the southwest coast of England are known for their beautiful beaches, crystal-clear waters and pristine nature. On St. Mary's, the largest island, we will take a day to soak in the breathtaking scenery and stroll along the peaceful beaches. Take a walk along the picturesque coastal paths or explore the historic Tresco Abbey Garden on New Grimsby.

With the Scilly nature still fresh in our minds and under our feet we will sail in a day to Dartmouth. Dartmouth, located on the River Dart in Devon, England, is a charming port town with colorful houses, medieval streets and a bustling harbor. Explore Dartmouth, visit the medieval Dartmouth Castle or take a walk along the River Dart.

Alderney, Cherbourg, and Le Havre:


From Dartmouth we will continue our journey and cross the English Channel to Alderney (Guernsey), fifteen kilometers off the French coast of Normandy. The Channel Island is known for its quiet beaches, picturesque harbors, and fascinating history, including the remains of an ancient Roman settlement. Alderney is the smaller sister of Guernsey, known from the beloved film "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society."

The mainland of France reaches across the water of the English Channel to Alderney. If the tide permits we will return and sail to the lively port city of Cherbourg. Due to its rich maritime history there is plenty to do in Cherbourg. For example, the impressive Gare Maritime  houses  (Terminal), the Cité de la Mer, where play and science come together to explore the depths of the sea. The Terminal, built in the characteristic art deco style of Cherbourg is divided into the sections Submarine and Ocean. Discover the largest accessible submarine in the world: the fascinating Redoutable ("Feared"). Experience the attraction "On a marché sous la mer" (We walked under the sea) and the permanent exhibition about passenger ships and emigration, more than 100 years after the legendary visit of the Titanic to Cherbourg.

Other museum highlights in Cherbourg include the Musée Thomas Henry  (the second-largest museum in Normandy), the Fort du Roule: French and German fortifications with the Musée de la Libération (Liberation Museum), and the Musée d'histoire naturelle et d'ethnographie (Emmanuel-Liais, Museum of Natural History and Ethnography), where a walk through this wonderful and extraordinary botanical garden leads through five continents. Château des Ravalet a castle park covering a whopping 17 hectares and labeled Jardin Remarquable (Remarkable Garden) brings together greenery and architecture. Finally, unmistakable in Cherbourg: the impressive Grande Rade  (Great Roadstead), an 18th-century "fortification wall in the sea," 4 kilometers long and detached from the coast.

Ultimately we will continue our journey to Le Havre, a major port city in Normandy, known for its modern architecture and vibrant art scene. Upon arrival in Le Havre we will disembark, looking back on an unforgettable sailing trip full of adventures and new experiences. In Le Havre the start of the Sail Training International Races takes place, in which Thalassa will also participate. Do you have some time left? Experience the unique liveliness of this nautical spectacle for one or two days. Le Havre offers many charming hotels and excellent restaurants to conclude your vacation aboard Thalassa.
