Treasure of Galapagos
The Treasure of Galapagos is a fine choice for visitors seeking a cruise on a small, intimate and modern catamaran with plenty of facilities.
The Treasure of Galápagos is a small, stable catamaran with surprisingly large guest cabins and a good range of facilities, including a shady bar, loungers and a Jacuzzi on the sundeck.
All the nine air-conditioned cabins (either twin beds or one double) have contemporary design and furnishings with sofa and small desk, and one of the advantages which make it a more attractive choice than some other mid-range vessels is the fact that each suite has its own small private outdoor balcony with table and chairs, where you can sit before breakfast to survey a new island where you may have arrived overnight, or relax after a shore excursion.
The ship is equipped with complimentary kayaks and snorkelling equipment so you can enjoy the marine environment from a more intimate perspective.

Visiting the Galápagos islands and coming so close to so many special species of animals and birds was a memorable experience.JB, Chiswick
The most memorable experiences were walking in woodland with wild giant tortoise grazing in clearings, watching wild land iguanas amble through long grasses, peering at eye level into the nests of red footed boobies, watching penguins and sea lions hunting fish whilst snorkelling, and as a finale, watching huge sharks circling in the boat lights during our final evening meal.JW, Newcastle

"The Galápagos Islands and the amazing Machu Picchu ruins. A real once in a lifetime experience."MCP Richmond
Truly a unique lifetime experience, especially snorkelling for the first time with playful sea lions, sea turtles, penguins, rays and ‘tame’ wildlife.SD, Rochester
The Galápagos was so amazing - we were not at all disappointed even though we had looked forward to it so much. Every part of our cruise was special, and we loved the Athala and her itinerary.RJ, Kenilworth
The Galápagos Islands were fantastic and beyond our wildest expectations.AC
A truly wonderful and privileged experience!RD, Ashford
One of us had not snorkelled for a very long time and was hesitant in deep water. Martin the Naturalist on MV Eclipse helped her overcome her fears and enabled her to accompany him resulting in amazing underwater views that she would not have had. The whole trip was memorable for both of us... We just loved the Galapagos.AL

The Galápagos Islands were out of this world.DJ, Chesterfield
It's very difficult to pick out one thing. Seeing the animals everywhere we went was amazing. We fell in love with the sea-lions. I loved the walk up to the view over Pinnacle Rock and then being on the beach by the rock afterwards. Seeing a white tipped shark from the beach was something I never expected.NR, Swindon
This was our holiday of a lifetime fulfilling a long held desire to visit the Galápagos Islands, and it lived up to all our expectations.SH, Aylesbury

The trip around the Galápagos was spectacular and I have never experienced anything like it before.LB, Enfield
The sealions were brilliant fun and the pups so cute, and so close. All the wildlife was great and seeing it all up close as nothing is afraid of humans, was amazing.KH, Weybridge
Snorkelling with penguins, turtles, sea lions and marine iguanas. Unbeatable.DJ, Saltash
Being able to visit the Galápagos with a reputable company was a highlight - the boat was fantastic and everything about the holiday was first rate.KF, Norfolk
So many (highlights) it's hard to single some out. The Galapagos are a joy from start to finish.JC, Littlehampton
Galapagos Islands wildlife, guide and boat. To be so close to birds and animals is a privilege and to see such pristine beaches and scenery is lovely.SJ, Winchelsea
