Galapagos Tourist Class Boats

Small Tourist Superior Boats

We have selected the below tourist-superior class boats as they provide comfortable on-board experience with frequent excursions onto the islands escorted by expert naturalist guides.

Coral I

Overview:

The Coral I and Coral II are sister vessels, although at 40 metres in length the Coral I is the larger of the two. Both vessels offer the same levels of comfort and the same itineraries. Custom-designed, Coral I offers an excellent blend of form and function, the interiors decorated throughout with dark teak and brass fittings and the layout carefully planned to maximise the views. The lounge and adjacent dining room are surrounded by windows so you won’t miss anything outside, while the observation and sun decks are great places to relax and enjoy the scenery. Three categories of cabins, all exterior across 3 decks, are well appointed and comfortable with windows or portholes – some interconnect to accommodate a family or group of friends. (Note: guests may be placed on either Coral I or Coral II and will be assigned on the day of departure).

Capacity: 36 Guests
Accommodation: Standard, Standard Plus and Junior Cabins
Cruise Durations: 4, 5, 8 and 15 day itineraries.

Galapagos Seaman Journey

Overview:

The catamaran Galapagos Seaman Journey is a well-designed and comfortable boat of almost 28 metres, with a bright and pleasant décor. It offers 8 light and airy exterior cabins – 6 twin on the main deck and 2 double-bed suites on the upper deck – with private bathrooms, air-conditioning and opening picture windows.
After an active day’s snorkelling, kayaking, swimming, or exploring the islands, there is a very large sundeck with massive day beds and sun-loungers where you can laze and chat or share a sunset with your shipmates. Or perhaps you’ll kick back in the well-stocked bar and lounge and talk about tomorrow’s adventures.

Capacity: 16 Guests
Accommodation: 6 Main Deck and 2 Upper Deck cabins
Cruise Durations: 4, 5, 8, 11, 12 and 15 days

Athala II

Overview:

Athala II was purpose-built for Galapagos cruising and is ideal for those preferring an intimate experience of the islands in the comfort of a catamaran. Although in the small boat category at only 30 metres, there is no sacrifice of outside space for nature enthusiasts.
An open teak deck area for dining and barbecues gives passengers on-board Athala II the choice of eating indoors or al fresco, there is an open-air bar on the upper deck, and the large sundeck with jacuzzi is the ideal spot to relax between island excursions. The 8 exterior cabins are located on two decks, with those on the main deck having the additional luxury of a private balcony.

Capacity: 16 Guests
Accommodation: 4 Upper Deck cabins, 4 Main Deck cabins with balconies

There are generous communal areas, a large dining room, a bar and a lounge with flat-screen TV, while wide windows surround the top two decks, ensuring panoramic views of sea, sky and islands. Enjoy ocean breezes from the topside open or shaded sun deck, or lay back in the lounge chairs and gaze at a night sky full of stars.
