A well-appointed motor yacht designed for those who prefer the intimacy of travel on a small craft while enjoying maximum comfort.

This motor yacht is optimal for those who prefer the intimacy of travel on a small craft while enjoying a decent level of comfort. The Beluga accommodates just 16 passengers in eight en suite, air-conditioned double cabins, which are pleasantly decorated in nautical cream, blue and tan and receive plenty of natural light through portholes.

There is a bright dining room and saloon, as well as public space on deck – both under cover and directly in sunlight to enjoy the sea breeze or observe the dolphins and curious seabirds. There are nine crew members including an English-speaking naturalist guide.

Our expert's view

Ben Line
Ben Line - Travel Expert

Ben fell in love with Latin America on a six month backpacking trip from Colombia to Mexico in 1995. Since then he has explored most of South America, including living in Peru for a year. He is now Head of Sales.

Beluga is a traditional, small motor yacht with comfortable cabins and benefits from a good-sized sun deck from which you can enjoy the open air and soak up the sea-breeze. As one of the few smaller boats in the Galápagos offering shorter 3 and 4 night cruises, I found this is a good option if you're short on time and prefer a more intimate experience.
