Sail from Kiel to Copenhagen on this five day voyage up the baltic sea. Head North through the Danish archipelago to reach Copenhagen on this magnificent tall ship.

Eye of the Wind’s summer cruise starts at the exit of the Kiel Canal, the maritime hub of the entire Baltic Sea region. From here the crew will take you on an unforgettable and relaxing journey to the capital of Denmark. This trip is a great way to get a taste of seafaring adventure: at this time of the year, only low waves and moderate wind speeds are to be expected in the area of the Western Baltic Sea. You’re guaranteed plenty of fresh sea air, on-board comfort, delicious food from the excellent onboard kitchen, genuine traditional seamanship and the typical Danish tranquility on shore in Copenhagen.

Eye of the Wind

Guest berths: 16 Rig: Brig

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.
