Cross the Atlantic from the beautiful emerald isles of the Azores, and enjoy a passage to the English Channel – a ship-watcher’s paradise.

The experience of having nothing but the wide ocean around you for several weeks, with that permanent gentle creaking of the sails and the blocks high up in the rigging … is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and truly a voyage to remember! Spend your days couting seamiles, climb the mast every now and then to enjoy the magnificent view – during an Atlantic crossing aboard a tall ship, you will become “shorelessly happy”. The Azores are islands of original beauty. At the end of the trip, we will reach the English Channel with its neverending stream of vessels.

With incredible amounts of character, Eye of the Wind has all the modern amenities and an authentic interior, with a teak maritime décor. Oozing with maritime history, the opportunity to sail on Eye of the Wind is one in a lifetime. This beautiful ship is as eye-catching as they get and she has even featured in several movies, including White Squall, due to her breath-taking appearance as a 1911 brig.

This windjammer offers luxurious holidays on board, cruising some of the most stunning locations in the world.

Although the ship has a large, capable engine, traditional sailing is naturally the preferred mode of travel so there is plenty to get stuck into on deck. The crew are extremely experienced and ready to teach you the workings of a classic tall ship, so no prior knowledge is necessary. Join the crew at any number of the large maritime festivals they appear at, cruise the European coast, or relish some winter sun and climb aboard for their voyages in the Caribbean – including a transatlantic crossing back from the Caribbean to Portugal.

Thanks to the 6 luxurious cabins, all with ensuite bathrooms, Eye of the Wind can sleep a total of 16 guests ensuring ocean passages can be travelled in true comfort. A large dining area, library and sun deck offer a multitude of different spaces to unwind and to get to know your fellow guests and crew.
