Galapagos Islands: San Jose

Visit Us

San Jose

San José is a small, good value motor cruiser with a bright and cheerful design and décor reminiscent of a private yacht. The vessel has room for just 16 guests, so there is a friendly and intimate ambiance which is totally informal and relaxed.

There are four decks and the guest cabins are located on the main and upper decks, far from the engine room, promising a peaceful night's sleep. Modern and well equipped without being luxurious, they have windows which may be opened, allowing the daylight to flood in.

You can relax on the ample sundeck or take cover on a shaded area, from where you can enjoy ocean views from your lounger.  Buffet-style meals are served in the enclosed restaurant cum living room, where you find sofas, a library and a coffee station. The yacht is 34m long and travels at a leisurely cruising speed of 10 knots.
