First class expeditionary motor yacht with great facilities and large panoramic windows,

La Pinta is a mid-sized motor yacht accommodating up to 48 passengers. Onboard, there are three naturalist guides, meaning excursion groups can be split by interest, fitness and ability. All guest cabins contain a large panoramic window for admiring the views and some have a connecting door, making them great for families.

The boat deck has: a spacious lounge with large windows on three sides; a library with deep, comfy armchairs; a modern gym; and a relaxing outdoor Jacuzzi. The dining room (breakfast and lunch are buffets, dinner is à la carte) is on the main deck, but in good weather, meals may be offered al fresco on the covered sun deck.

Free snorkelling equipment and wetsuits are available on board, but for guests who prefer to watch the underwater theatre from above sea level, the yacht has a glass-bottomed boat. Kayak and stand-up-paddle board excursions are also available at no extra cost.

Our Expert's Opinion

La Pinta offers the best of both worlds – a sleek, larger expedition boat yet still with a personable and intimate service. The cabin size was a big plus as were the picture windows in every cabin. Due to the size of La Pinta, there are 3 naturalist guides on board so you can make the most of their different expertise including snorkelling – I’ll never forget one guide tapping me on the shoulder and pointing to a penguin darting in and out of the water!
