Introduction to the Petrel

Style: First Class   Guests: 16

The Petrel, a first class motorised catamaran in the Galapagos Islands, is elegant, swift and silent at sea, much like the bird it’s named after. The Petrel offers travel in the Galapagos in comfort and style. The knowledgeable guides provide insight into the biology and ecology of this fascinating region. On-board facilities include large air-conditioned cabins, each with private bathroom and a private balcony. The sun deck, with a Jacuzzi and sun-beds, is a great place to relax and take in the breathtaking scenery in between excursions.
