Embark on a once-in-a-lifetime adventure where you’ll voyage across the globe without spending a dime. Picture yourself arriving at awe-inspiring cities aboard a magnificent 17th-century galleon or the illustrious Nao Victoria – the very replica vessel that completed the historic First Circumnavigation of the Globe.

While lending a hand aboard our museum ship, you’ll also have free time to immerse yourself in the charm of each city, explore its treasures, and indulge in your favorite activities. In our volunteer project, there are people from all over the world.

Choose your own path with the opportunity to join our European or United States-based projects – it’s your adventure, your decision!

The Nao Victoria Foundation is a non-profit organization specialized in the promotion and development of events through its replicas of historic ships (Nao Victoria, El Galeón, Nao Santa María, and Nao Victoria 500) in ports worldwide.

What better way to arrive in the city than aboard a 16th-century replica?

Experience has shown that these historic ships serve as great attractions, drawing massive crowds and significant media attention at national and international exhibitions and events.

Seize this remarkable opportunity and join us as we navigate the seas and capture imaginations.

You will work for about 40 hours per week.
