Join us aboard the wonderfully comfortable MS Caledonian Sky as she undertakes an island hopping adventure; exactly the type of itinerary that suits her best. Our voyage will begin in Dakar where, after a day to explore Senegal’s fascinating capital city we sail to the intriguing Cape Verde archipelago for an in-depth discovery of the islands, exploring volcanic landscapes, colonial towns and villages and breathtaking beaches. They are an amazingly varied group of islands that have been used as a staging post by mariners through the ages and there is truly no better way to explore this region, with its dramatic beauty and cultural vibrancy than by small ship, and with the MS Caledonian Sky as our base we can island hop with great ease.
During our voyage we will discover the culture, wildlife and lifestyle of the islands, some of which are arid and flat with extraordinary beaches and dunes contrasting with lush mountainous islands. It is a little world of its own, each island having a distinct culture and atmosphere and an ideal archipelago for small ship cruising. On some islands the infrastructure is minimal but with our nimble Zodiacs we are able to land on the remotest of islands and explore. For those who enjoy visiting out of the way islands where tourists are a rarity, this is a unique opportunity.
