This luxury catamaran lets you explore the best of the Galapagos archipelago in comfort and style. Relax on your own private balcony or soak up the sun on the sun deck before exploring the unique islands.

This modern, twin-hulled catamaran has been designed to offer a spacious interior. Enjoy panoramic views from the sky deck, where you'll find an al fresco dining area as well as a cosy, well-stocked bar.

Each of the suites comes with a private ocean-view balcony and floor-to-celling windows offering panoramic views out over the ever-changing Galápagos seascapes. Rooms come with a king-sized bed or separate twins, with a single cabin also available.

On board, guests enjoy three meals a day prepared using fresh, local produce by specialist chefs. This includes buffet-style feasts for breakfast and lunch, then an elegant outdoor dining experience each evening on the sky deck.

You'll be well attended to by the 11 crew members, as well as the top-ranked naturalist guides who will lead exhilarating wildlife expeditions. Activities on offer include hikes across the volcanic fields, visits to albatross nesting grounds and snorkelling with sea lions.

What our clients say

  • Most memorable experience: "Where to start? Huge evening skies on the Napo river, pulling out of Chimbacalle station on the Tren Crucero in a cacophony of whistling and hooting; the Devil's nose, swimming with penguins, sharks and sea lions. The moment on the Tren Crucero when our guide wanted to reassure us, You may have heard that Cotopaxi has been erupting recently, don't worry, it's all under control. The library in the Hacienda Zuleta; Firefly larvae in the dark on Limoncocha; smoking a cigar in the garden of Hacienda La Cienega - its's hard to keep a cigar alight in the thin Andean air, but you can pretend to be Alaxander von Humbolt."

    DH, Portsmouth
  • Most Memorable Moment?: Very hard to say! Loved Hacienda Venecia, and Napo, and Bellavista, and the Avenue of the Volcanoes. 

    DL, London
  • Two parts: Seeing cotopaxi and the surrounding area for the first time, and stepping off the boat onto floreana and having to avoid sea lions and iguana, magical.

    HT, Conwy
  • Avenue of the Volcanoes was superb plus swimming with sea lions and penguins.

    JK, Sheffield
  • From the moment we were picked up, on time, from our hotel in Quito, to the moment we were left at the departure lounge in the airport in Baltra, the organisation and punctuality of everything was impeccable. As residents in South America this was a very pleasant surprise!

    TP, Lima
  • We had a wonderful holiday to Quito and Galapagos with Journey Latin America. We just wish it had been longer!
