Pedro Jimenez, with more than 150,000 miles sailed,
After working from Sunday to Sunday, from sunrise to sunset for the last 25 years, in 2019 I began a change of life: the sailboat became my home and my goal was to make trips and crossings sailing the world.
I know the Mediterranean and the Caribbean well, I have crossed the Atlantic seven times to discover Brazilian, Argentine and Uruguayan coasts. I have made 3 Antarctic crossings. I made double crossing of the Pacific arriving at the Marquesas and Bora Bora, ending the crossing in Valdivia, Chile. What will be the next destination? Where the wind takes me…
If you are looking to experience nautical expeditions to the most remote places in the world, living them in an immersive way and participating in all the maneuvers, decisions and guards, welcome to Alegría Marineros.
IAATO is a membership organization founded in 1991 to advocate and promote the practice of safe and environmentally responsible private sector travel to Antarctica.
As operators of the IAATO, Expediciones Alegría Marineros makes trips and sailboat crossings to Antarctica and aligns with the ideology of the organization committing to comply with and enforce all conservation protocols of Antarctica as well as its fauna.
The whole team is very proud to carry out this task as well as to be Antarctic ambassadors and promote respect and care for the most virgin ecosystem on the planet.
The experience completely covered all my expectations. The crew is very qualified, decisive, making our stay as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The perfect boat for that journey, safe and well equipped.
An unforgettable experience. I hope in the future to be able to share another experience like this.
Congratulations and thank you!!!
Congratulations to our captain Pedro for a job well done, for the effort he makes to surprise us.
Thank you for your initiative and courage that has allowed us to enjoy these magical and wonderful landscapes.
We have sailed through unimaginable places. It is difficult to describe the emotion and the amount of exceptional sensations that this experience provokes in first person.
Very good navigation, a lot of criteria in decision making even sharing it.
The crew with a lot of knowledge of all the systems solving when the problems appear without having to go to external assistance.
I think it is a group, with Pedro at the head to make the most daring and incredible journeys through
Sailing with Pedro is a pleasure, and that alone is worth it, this time I met the rest of the crew of El Doblón who were always attentive that we all have what we needed. It was a spectacular trip. Pedro should take another ham and not let anyone cut it lol
As soon as I can, I will embark again for the fourth time!
It was a wonderful trip for everything: for the amazing places we visited and how much fun it was on many occasions, for the boat, for the navigation, for the crew and also for the varied passage we got together!
Very grateful to all for the treatment, dedication and sympathy. I remember you with family affection and I would like to meet you again at some turn in life. A big hug to all!
I participated in the crossing of the Atlantic 2019, by the wonderful Copernicus Doubloon. A dream come true with an unbeatable crew. An experience full of great memories and many learnings, which I would undoubtedly repeat. Very fortunate to be part of the great project of Copernicus Doubloon. Much joy for tod@s!

If you are looking to spend unforgettable days, one of the things you should try is a sailing trip. Sailing trips are a unique experience that, obviously, can only be enjoyed on board a boat.
Traveling aboard a sailboat is to be able to enjoy a route that you can never carry out by car or other means of transport. They allow you to discover the world from another point of view and, beyond the route or distance, enjoying certain islands on board the boat is something incomparable.
Sailing trips have evolved a lot over the years. This not only allows you to make a reservation in a much more accessible way, but also have more information about these online. The price is much more affordable, so now practically anyone can enjoy a holiday on a sailboat if you want to enjoy an unparalleled experience.
On the other hand, not only information is the thing, since the sailing trip is becoming more comfortable. Now, with technologically equipped boats, it is possible to enjoy advantages such as stabilizers or all kinds of services on board. This makes it a small floating hotel, since on the sailing trip you can enjoy services such as laundry or dining room, a whole advance to make the trip more comfortable.
On the other hand, you can travel with an experienced crew, not only to use their nautical charts, but also to give you information and everything you need to know about the route that is taking place. A sailing trip is a much more personal experience than any other type of boat precisely because of the size of this.
On the other hand, although they are not the largest boats, it has the most cozy cabins and everything you need for maximum comfort. Beyond the advantages of the boat itself, what undoubtedly makes it an unparalleled experience are the different routes you can carry out. From here we highly recommend three crossings, one in Antarctica, another in the Chilean fjords and another in the snowdrifts.
A sailing trip to Antarctica is one of those experiences that should be lived at least once in a lifetime. Without detracting from the rest of excursions, the truth is that Antarctica is something special for everything it entails. Antarctica has always been the dream of many discoverers, ice deserts that expand wherever you look and a fauna of its own impossible to find anywhere else due to its characteristics. You can enjoy all the places of Antarctica without leaving the sailboat and, if you cool down outdoors, you can always warm up again in the cabin, which is a great advantage to enjoy this privileged place.
It is impossible to enjoy Antarctica in any other way, so a sailing trip is one of the simplest and most pleasant ways to enjoy these ice moors. You can enjoy different journeys with different days. Different places of departure and arrival for you to choose the one that best suits you or depending on the expedition you want to do, there is much to enjoy in Antarctica.
Another privileged enclave of nature is formed by the Chilean fjords. On board a sailboat you can enjoy these claws of nature, special places where you can only enjoy aboard a boat, much better if it is a sailboat for the convenience and comfort it offers.
In the same way that happens with Antarctica, you will have different ways to enjoy the Chilean fjords. From Cook Bay, to the Darwin Ranges or the Strait of Magellan. Here you will have the opportunity to enjoy in first person authentic glaciers, ice monsters that rest on the icy waters of Chile.
On board this sailboat you can enjoy the most remote fjords of Chile, those fjords that hide from the most curious eyes and that are only seen by those who go on a sailboat. An unparalleled experience is to listen to the crunch of the ice, you will probably not find any other place on earth where you can enjoy this way of places like the Garibaldi glacier.
Finally, another of those crossings with which you can enjoy aboard a sailboat, the Ventisqueros. A crossing through the Snowdrifts is a journey between meanders of ice. Once again, a unique place on the planet where the best and only way to enjoy it in all its splendor is aboard a sailboat. This crossing is suitable for all audiences, although it is important to have a good physical shape to be able to enjoy it to the fullest, especially if you want to do some route on foot. A sailing trip through the snowdrifts will allow you to walk on ice beaches, all completely safely so you can get to know a completely different ecosystem.
If you are a lover of adventure, sailing or trekking, you will enjoy as never before in this sailing trip through the snowdrifts. In short, a sailing trip allows you to enjoy all kinds of adventures in a completely different way. Thanks to the fact that you are continuously moving along the routes with the sailboat, you will not have to worry about any other means of transport to discover the different islands.
Although they are frozen places, comfort will be guaranteed with the large cabins of the sailboats. Whether aboard the Copernicus Doubloon or Doubloon, you’ll be able to enjoy all the amenities on board as you travel through the ice.
