Experience a new type of cultural adventure
Students joining us for our Spring Break Voyage with Oliver Hazard Perry will start and end their journey in Ft. Lauderdale Florida. If not local to the area, Ft. Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport (FLL) is the most convenient airport for arrivals and departures. From there we will spend the first full day of the voyage learning everything there is about life aboard, as we prep for our trip south. After that we will set sail for a two day passage to Cuba. As with any sailing adventure, weather conditions will determine our destinations and route.
The Republic of Cuba is a historically rich destination, with increasing popularity due to its recently restored relations with the United States. The local climate of Cuba is tropical, moderated by the northeasterly trade winds, making it's spring temperatures very comfortable. The Republic's cities are vibrant with cultural values, such as a flavorful music scene and nostalgic vintage cars. Additionally, you can find an abundance of historical landmarks, making it a fulfilling destination for every type of traveler.
