AIRPORTS and TRAVEL LOGISTICS

If you are worried about getting to and from the boat, don’t be! Closer to date we will let you know exactly what marina we are birthed in and we are always a phone call away if you get lost.

There is an airport on all the main islands we will stop at, so you might want to plan your air travel from our departure location in advance before setting sail.

  • CHERBOURG Airport - Maupertus is an airport located 11 km east of Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, between Maupertus-sur-Mer and Gonneville. 
  • CASCAIS - We recommend flying to Lisbon (LIS) Airport, which is 26.7 km away from Cascais as there is no airport in Cascais itself. 

Eve also has a fabulous tender which we will use to get to and from the boat when we arrive in places which are a little more remote.
